CAYCE, S.C. -- Lexington County deputies say a former employee at an Amazon.com warehouse stole more than 700 iPods and nearly 50 laptops from the company.

Investigators said 20-year-old Todd Cofield Jr. was supposed to unload the merchandise from trailers at the Internet retailer's Cayce warehouse.

Deputies say Cofield stole the items instead, then forged paperwork to make it look like he stocked the electronics in the right place.

Authorities say Cofield took 726 iPods and 49 mini laptops worth about $160,000.

Cofield is charged with two counts of grand larceny and is free on $50,000 bail.

Sadly retail theft is almost always done more by the employees then anyone else. I recall when the PS2 was released I was working at Wal-Mart, and the whole shift was informed that they had caught an unloader stashing PS/2 boxes outside on the loading dock, LP happened to witness the whole thing happening, and busted him. The funny thing was the assistant manager had the police officer lead the employee throughout the whole store while still wearing the wal-mart vest, name tag, and a sign taped to his back that said thief! That manager was awesome!

Who knows, he might not have gotten caught if he had been a little less greedy.
