Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A contract employee has been charged with stealing computers from the state.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Shawn Lewis of Madison was working to repair computers when he took as many as 17 laptops from the Department of Workforce Development between April and September. Investigators say Lewis sold some computers at pawn shops and others on Craigslist. Police say Lewis traded one for heroin.

The State Journal says Lewis is charged with felony theft and seven misdemeanor counts. Court records do not list a defense attorney.
