Wilmington man charged with stealing $100,000 worth of camera equipment


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police have arrested a man for allegedly stealing $100,000 worth of camera equipment from a movie company he worked for.

Kevin Shaun Martinek, 31, is charged with larceny by employee.

Detectives say they began their investigation back in October, when they got a report that some expensive camera equipment had been stolen. They followed several leads for months and say they found the suspect online trying to sell the equipment.

Last night police executed a search warrant on Martinek's home on Pine Hollow Drive and recovered most of the property.

Martinek is out of jail on $10,000 bond.
