LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Metro Police arrested a man who they said stole two laptops from the downtown Marriott Hotel.

Hotel staff told the man to leave because he was loitering, but was not a hotel customer.

They later noticed two laptops, containing 25 years of client information were gone.

Police said surveillance video showed the man, 20-year-old Vincent Pegan, taking the computers.

Police said Pegan returned to the Marriott to use the phone and was taken into custody by hotel security. He later admitted to taking the computers which were recovered.
