    Office Depot delivery man accused of stealing large stash of supplies
    — Investigators on Friday arrested a Tracy man suspected of stealing
    more than $15,000 in office supplies he was supposed to have been

    Martin Felix,
    20, of Tracy, was arrested on suspicion of stolen property and grand
    theft charges while making deliveries in Stockton.Police discovered the
    stash in a storage unit registered to his name, pulling out dozens of
    boxes marked “Office Depot,” Tracy police Detective Keith Hooks
    said.Felix was booked into San Joaquin County Jail and is expected to
    appear in court early next week.

    Hooks said authorities found
    between $12,000 and $15,000 worth of stolen merchandise from Office
    Depot between two sites associated with Felix.”There is tons of stuff,”
    Hooks said. “We’re still in the process of adding it up. It was a good
    arrest. All our resources worked together to take a suspected criminal
    off the street.”Hooks said there is a possibility Felix could face
    embezzlement charges as well.

    On Monday, Tracy Police were
    alerted to large quantities of merchandise missing from an Office Depot
    distribution warehouse, 1820 N. MacArthur Drive. Investigators said
    Felix works for a company that contracts with Office Depot to deliver
    orders.Items loaded onto Felix’s truck were scanned and
    counted, but they weren’t arriving at their intended destinations,
    Hooks said.Hooks said he began searching storage facilities in town and
    found Felix had rented a spaceat Extra Storage Space, 780 E. 11th
    St.After obtaining a search warrant, investigators opened the storage
    space and found boxes full of batteries, optical mouses, printer ink
    cartridges and photo paper, many in boxes marked with the red Office
    Depot logo, Hooks said.There’s evidence Felix visited the storage space
    several times in his van, which displays Office Depot’s logo, Hooks

    Officials from Office Depot declined to comment.
    looking for Felix, Hooks said police searched Felix’s home on the 200
    block of West Lowell Avenue.There, he said, police found more boxes
    labeled “Office Depot.”
