Cops: Man Stole Work Computer, Then Replacement

He didn't even pay for the warranty.

Police in Long Branch say a man allegedly stole a $20,000 diagnostic computer from a garage where he used to work, then returned the broken unit several months later -- only to steal its replacement.

Rodney Beharry has been charged Friday with two counts of theft.

Police say the first computer went missing from Contemporary Motor Cars sometime between last June and October. The 29-year-old Beharry couldn't be questioned because he had resigned and traveled to Trinidad.

When he returned, he allegedly went to the garage to revisit former co-workers and even brought coffee and doughnuts. But he soon disappeared and employees noticed the old computer was back and the new computer was gone.
