PERRYSBURG, Ohio, June 17 (UPI) -- Investigators say three employees at an Ohio cookware factory allegedly made $15,000 selling stolen items on eBay.
Two of the workers were arrested Monday, the Toledo Blade reported, and the third surrendered Tuesday.
Sgt. Mark Hetrick, a detective with the Perrysburg police, said Calphalon fired the three after discovering they were being robbed in January. The company then notified police.
The technique was simple, Hetrick said. The three worked the overnight shift at the plant.
"They'd set a box out by the door and pick it up after their shifts," he said. "It worked for a while."
Stolen items were sold on eBay. Hetrick said the trio undercut the retail price, but everything they made was "pure profit because it wasn't theirs to sell."
