MINNEAPOLIS - An employee at the Hennepin County district court is accused of stealing nearly $100,000 worth of computer equipment from work.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says 42-year-old Saleem Abdul Ghani of Maple Grove is charged with four counts of felony theft.

Prosecutors say he stole 112 computer components including a laptop, printer, software and servers. The items are worth more than $93,000.

Ghani was an information-technology employee for the court system. Online court records didn't list a defense attorney Friday.

Prosecutors say the thefts were discovered when officials conducted an inventory of assets.
