BUFFALO, NY -- A Delevan man is facing larceny charges after a theft of iPads was reported at the Springville WalMart.

Keith Brown, 26, has been arrested in connection with the stolen items.

On Nov. 25, loss prevention personnel at the WalMart observed a man putting 31 iPads into a suitcase and then purchasing only the suitcase, with the iPads hidden inside.

According to Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard, Deputy Ellis responded to the larceny report, and turned over the surveillance footage to the Detective Bureau.

Detectives were able to identify Brown through additional information and tips, and executed a warrant at a residence in the Town of Delevan, where Brown was arrested.

Brown is charged with a felony count of third-degree larceny and is being held without bail at the Erie County Holding Center pending his arraignment in the Springville Village Court.
