— A former employee of The Herald has refused to return a company-issued iPad and camcorder after he stopped working at the business this week, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The newspaper’s human resources director told police Wednesday that the former employee, 40, left the company on Monday and has not returned property belonging to the business, according to the report.

The HR director told police she and the former employee had a termination meeting, during which she asked him when he would return the $600 iPad and $500 camcorder, the report states.

She told police the ex-employee said he thought the items were a gift, the report states, and she told him he must return it. She last spoke with him on Tuesday, according to the report, when he refused to return the items and told the director to call his attorney.

Police were unable to reach the former employee by phone, but are still investigating.
