(WMC-TV) - Southaven police say a shipment of about 200 iPads were sent to a local warehouse by mistake and four employees are accused of re-selling the devices on Craigslist.

Investigators say the shipment arrived at the Grainger Warehouse in August and they began their case in September.

Wanda Bernard, of Hernando, is charged with grand larceny, along with Janita Tuggles, of Walls, Miss. Brittany Newberry is charged with conspiracy to commit larceny and Michael Franklin is accused of receiving stolen property.

Southaven Police says most of the iPads were sold near Batesville and Senatobia.

Investigators say more arrests are possible.
