Naval investigators are searching for more suspects believed to be involved in the theft of as many as 300 laptop computers from Navy facilities in Tennessee, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.

One suspect, 33-year-old Yaw Owusu, of Memphis, admitted receiving $50,000 for about 150 laptops he stole and was bound over to a grand jury after a preliminary hearing Friday on felony charges of theft of property.

An affidavit obtained by The Commercial Appeal revealed the laptops were stolen from secure military installations in Millington, Tenn., New Orleans and Mechanicsburg, Pa. The records did not disclose when or how the computers were stolen.

Investigators asked Shelby County Sheriff's Office for assistance in the search for two more suspects in the case, 29-year-old Rodriguez McCain and 32-year-old Vernon Harris.
