MESA, Ariz. (AP) - A former employee for an east Mesa auto parts store is accused of stealing more than $7,000 worth of items.

Authorities say 24-year-old Dayvonne J. Brunson allegedly took 46 parts from the Autozone store during a three-month period.

Store theft-loss prevention personnel discovered the thefts through a computerized system that tracks parts that are taken from one store for delivery to another.

Authorities say Brunson was confronted by store personnel on Feb. 27, but he quit his job and fled before police arrived.

Police eventually tracked him to his home in Mesa.

The Arizona Republic says Brunson told police he stole the items and sold some to friends because he was going through financial hardship.

Police didn't know Wednesday if Brunson has an attorney.
