UPPER MARLBORO, Md. -

A Metro employee has been arrested and charged with stealing more than a dozen defibrillators from transit agency facilities and selling them online.

Metro Transit Police say they arrested 40-year-old Derrick Davis of Laurel. He was charged Thursday in Prince George's County District Court.

Metro says police detectives contacted Davis through eBay to try to purchase a defibrillator. An undercover detective posed as a potential buyer and arranged to purchase the device for $300 in cash.

After he was arrested, police say Davis admitted that he had stolen 13 of the defibrillators from Metro facilities. They are valued at about $1,400 each.

Davis worked as a maintenance worker on Metro infrastructure projects. He was suspended from his job.
