PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

A Cuyahoga Community College IT supervisor has been charged with stealing at least $50,000 worth of computers.

41-year-old Gregory Wallace, of Ira Ave in Cleveland, appeared in Parma Municipal Court on Thursday morning and was arraigned on a single count of felony theft.

Parma Police built the case against Wallace and will be going to a grand jury for more charges.

Investigators say that over the past year Wallace removed over a dozen, brand new i-Mac computers, several HP computers, a Smart board and other instructional technology hardware from the IT department.

Officers say that Wallace kept some of the stolen items for himself and would also distribute other items to at least two other individuals, who then sold the items on the street.

On June 11, 2014, Parma Police detectives executed a search warrant at Wallace's Cleveland residence and recovered many of the stolen computer items inside of his home.

Authorities say two other suspects are under investigation and will be charged as well.

Wallace was a supervisor at the college and had access to computers at all of the TRI-C campuses.

Officers say he resigned a couple of weeks ago.

The Parma Police Department says they would like to thank the Cuyahoga Community College Police Department for their assistance in the investigation.
