A Fed Ex worker is accused of rerouting packages containing 10 laptops, valued at $10,000, to his Hicksville home. Eyewitness News is told 20-year-old Jin Hui Wu, of 28 8th Street in Hicksville, was arrested at the Fed Ex office on Grumman Road West in Bethpage.

Police say Wu was charged with one count of grand larceny and one count of fraud.

Authorities say Fed Ex officials realized during an audit of non-delivered packages that Wu stole at least nine customer packages by sending them to his home address from November 26 to December 31.

Only four of the laptop computers have reportedly been recovered. The investigation is continuing.
