(ABCNews) The chief executive of Raynham-based Medrobotics Corp. did not recognize a man as an employee or contractor who was in the company’s conference room late at night. The CEO asked the stranger what he was doing but the intruder kept changing his story and when he claimed he was there to meet the CEO, the true CEO called the police.
When arrested, he was in possession of two laptops, an iPad, two portable hard drives, 10 cellphone SIM cards, two digital camcorders, at least two flash drives, and other equipment that can be used to obtain data from computer networks, prosecutors said. The intruder was charged with attempted theft of trade secrets and attempted access to a computer without authorization in order to obtain protected information, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston.
