MTN News is learning new details about an alleged theft involving computers at the Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital.

Remington Shideler, 26, is accused of stealing 71 central processing units (CPUs) from computers at the hospital between Sept. 15 and Oct 2.

CPU’s act as the brains of the computer and without them, the devices won’t work.

Shideler was formerly employed by Universal Protection Service which provided security detail at the hospital.

The tampered computers were PC’s the hospital’s IT department used throughout the facility. Bozeman Health says the CPUs were brand new and did not have any data on them.

Shideler’s bond was set at $5,000.
