COON RAPIDS, Minn. (WCCO) — A Robbinsdale man has been charged in connection with a suspected series of laptop thefts around the Twin Cities metro area.

Charges have been filed in Anoka County against 32-year-old Vennie Jerome Williams.

Police say they responded to a Best Buy in Coon Rapids in October on a report that a laptop had been stolen from the store.

Video surveillance showed a man police later identified as Williams walking into the store’s “Solution Center” area and swiping a laptop from a table in the employee’s section. Video showed him fleeing in a black and white Mitsubishi convertible later identified as belonging to his wife.

The laptop was valued at about $2,500.

The criminal complaint says investigators are looking into Williams’ possible connection with a number of other laptop thefts from Twin Cities Best Buy stores.

He has been charged with theft, and could get up to 5 years in prison and a fine of $10,000 if convicted.
