WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Officers with the Wilmington Police Department have arrested a man after several months of investigating for stealing $100,000 worth of camera equipment from a movie company.

According to police, detectives began their investigation in October 2013 when they received a report some expensive camera equipment had been stolen.

Police said investigators followed several leads for months and found the suspect online trying to sell the stolen equipment.

Authorities executed a search warrant Thursday night and ultimately arrested and charged 31-year-old Kevin Shaun Martinek with larceny by an employee and recovered most of the property.
