Ex-UPS employee accused of stealing PCs to pay off debts

HOUSTON

Jason Shane Blevins, 39, is charged with aggregate theft. Blevins allegedly stole 70 computers worth more than $43,000 from UPS from November 2008 through April 2011.

Court documents state a UPS audit discovered that computers were being bought then sold by an employee to accounts that were not legitimate. Investigators say Blevins confessed in a written statement explaining that he was stealing computers by using false information to obtain them and reselling them on eBay to pay off a gambling debt.

UPS terminated Blevins upon completion of its internal investigation, court documents show.

Bond has been set at $5,000 in this case.
