Metro police has arrested a man after he took a traveler's forgotten backpack from the Nashville International Airport earlier this month.

The victim reported to police he arrived to the airport just after 11 p.m. on August 13.

The man retrieved his luggage, but accidentally left behind a black backpack that contained a laptop computer, an iPad and a GPS device among other items.

Surveillance video shows Leake Abraha take the backpack that was left near a pole at baggage claim.

Police reported the victim was able to electronically locate his iPad at Abraha's home on Patricia Drive.

He has since been taken into custody and charged with theft over $1,000.
