SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police have arrested a man they say is responsible for stealing from his former employer.

Mathew Moreno, 20, is charged with burglary of a building.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Moreno was selling stolen goods on a website. The affidavit said Moreno allegedly broke out the window of a garage and stole the assorted tools. The tools were eventually traced back to his former employer, the "My Collision Center", the affidavit said.

The affidavit said Moreno denied any wrongdong and refused access to his home. A search warrant was obtained and some of the stolen property was found in the lining of a couch, the affidavit said.

Police said Moreno had been fired from the company two weeks prior.
