A Brentwood man faces a theft charge after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested him Thursday night, claiming he bought nine stolen iPads as part of an alleged multi-county iPad theft ring.
Ngoc Vo Ngo was charged with one count of theft between $1,000 and $10,000.
According to the TBI, the district attorney general requested that the agency investigate a suspected theft ring in which individuals shoplifted iPads from area Wal-Marts and sold them to 30-year-old Ngoc Vo Ngo.
On Thursday, TBI officials say Ngo bought the nine iPads for $2,100 from law enforcement at Jennifer Nails on Ewing Drive in Nashville. Ngo was arrested, and the investigation continues.
The Metro Nashville Police Department and Wal-Mart loss prevention department assisted in the investigation. Ngo was booked into Davidson County jail and released on bond.
