Man accused of larceny after allegedly taking date's iPad

A 29-year-old Michigan man was arrested after a first date gone wrong. No, this Lothario was not apprehended because of his relationship techniques -- he is facing larceny charges after allegedly taking items from a woman he met online. Officials say the man is thought to have taken an iPad and a piece of jewelry from the woman's home on March 23.

Official reports show that the 32-year-old woman met the defendant online. They exchanged text messages, and she invited him to her home to watch television. She asked him to leave after about 90 minutes. At that point, police say she noticed that her Apple iPad was missing, along with a silver necklace.

In addition to the theft charges, the man is facing allegations of drunk driving. Officers say they identified the man as he was driving on Eight Mile Road in Detroit. The defendant refused to take a breath test, so a warrant was obtained and a blood sample was taken, instead. Toxicology results are expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Officers say they were able to recover the woman's iPad, which was found beneath a floor mat in the defendant's vehicle. The necklace remains missing, however. The defendant was released on a $25,000 cash bond shortly after the incident. The larceny charges in this case are considered felonies, and the man could spend up to four years in prison if convicted.

Criminal defendants who are facing larceny charges may benefit from the representation provided by a criminal defense attorney. These professionals may help clients learn more about their legal rights and options, including plea agreements and other strategies for criminal defense. It is important to remember that an arrest and arraignment for a crime does not mean that the defendant is automatically considered guilty, no matter the charge.
