Zynga Temp Accused Of Stealing $US100K In Merchandise

Police on Tuesday arrested a Zynga temp who is accused of stealing $US100,000 worth of merchandise and equipment from the company behind casual games FarmVille, CityVille and Mafia War, the San Francisco Examiner reports.

Keith Brown, 21, of San Ramon was arrested Tuesday at the company’s San Francisco headquarters, according to District Attorney’s Office spokesman Omid Talai.

Police say that Brown stole laptop and desktop computers and software worth about $US100,000 between Halloween and his arrest on Tuesday. Zynga security took him into custody after spotting the thefts on security cameras and took him to police.

Brown is scheduled for arraignment this afternoon on four felony counts of commercial burglary, one of receiving stolen property, one of grand theft and one of embezzlement.

  • Hmm… How the hell did ONE person plan on getting away with stealing $100,000 worth of tech gear within 2 weeks and not expect to get busted???

    • I think an even better question is how did he get away with progressively stealing $100,000 worth of hardware over 2 weeks without getting caught?

      Surely they would have noticed laptops and desktops going missing and checked the security tapes then?
