A Michigan State University football player is among 10 men charged in the theft of 104 Detroit Public Schools lap top computers valued at $158,000.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced the charges Tuesday against 19-year-old Dion Sims and the other defendants. The Spartans list Sims as a sophomore tight end.
The computers were stolen in December 2009 to January 2010 from five schools. Some have been tracked to Arizona, California, Florida, Minnesota, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin, as well as Canada and the United Arab Emirates.
Sims is charged with receiving and concealing stolen property. A message seeking comment was left with Michigan State.
Authorities say three suspects are members of the "Helly Helly Bois" gang.
