A temporary Zynga employee is in custody after being accused of stealing $100,000-worth of company merchandise.

Company security cameras allegedly caught 21-year-old Keith Brown of California, stealing laptops, desktop computers and software worth around $100,000, according to District Attorney's Office spokesman Omid Talai. Talai says  the merchandise was stolen between October 31st and Brown's arrest this past Tuesday, and that the suspect was taken into custody by security before being handed over to the police.

"At this point, he's the only Zynga employee arrested for doing this," Talai said. A Zynga spokesperson has declined to comment on the situation.

Brown is currently in being held in custody on four felony counts of commercial burglary, receiving stolen property, grand theft and embezzlement.

I wonder if they'll let him harvest his strawberries in lieu of a phone call?
