Cleveland Man Arrested, Accused Of Stealing Museum Sapphires

A Cleveland man was taken into custody after he was accused of stealing sapphires worth $81,000 from the local natural history museum.

Thirty-six-year-old Hans Wrage was charged with vandalism and grand theft a little over a week after police allege he smashed through a glass case and stole seven sapphires.

Wrage was a part-time employee of John Carroll University's physics department. He's been placed on administrative leave, according to a statement from the university.

The museum said on Friday, "We were pleased to learn earlier today that an arrest has been made."
