A DeKalb County man is accused of stealing computers from the state of Tennessee.

Paul Allen Willingham, 33, of Smithville, TN, was charged Friday with one count of theft of property over $1,000.

While working as a computer technician for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Willingham stole two computers from the agency, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The TBI was asked to investigate the case on March 20. The laptops were later recovered and Willingham was fired from his position.

Willingham was booked into the DeKalb County Jail on $10,000 bond and transferred to the Davidson County Jail.
