A former Garmin employee is charged with stealing more than $1 million of GPS units and selling them on sites like eBay, the Associated Press reports.

Terrence M. Heathington, 31, was indicted on Aug. 28 on 40 counts of mail fraud. Heathington worked as a Garmin warehouse material handler in Olathe, Kan., from March to September 2008. He allegedly had 165 cases of GPS devices shipped to his home and those of his accomplices.

Heathington now lives in Atlanta. In addition to criminal charges, prosecutors are also seeking a forfeiture judgment, the Associated Press reports.
