CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- An Iowa public library janitor has been arrested after police say he stole a computer from work and destroyed it.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports 43-year-old Billy Matiyabo was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree theft. He tells police he stole the computer from the Coralville Public Library after he used it to view inappropriate material in October following his shift. Police say he returned to work, stole the computer and then burned it.

The computer was valued at about $700. Police didn't say what Matiyabo used the computer to view.

Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney for Matiyabo.
