CHICAGO | A man was linked to thefts from the Environmental Protection Agency's Chicago office after calling a help line for the manufacturer of a stolen laptop, police said.

Alan Baker, 35, of Chicago, was arrested this week and charged with theft of government property. He remained in the Cook County Jail on Thursday on a $10,000 bond.

The theft of a laptop and two smartphones happened in December when Baker was working for the office as a temporary janitor, Cook County sheriff's police said.

Baker called the laptop's manufacturing hot line for help, police said. Police interviewed Baker Monday at his home where they reportedly found the laptop and the two phones.
