Minnesota Timberwolves employee arrested on charges of THEFT with SHOOTING

Somak Sarkar, 33, received a letter of dismissal from the Minnesota Timberwolves and subsequently arrested Monday. As Paul Walsh of the Star Tribune reports, Somak Sarkar is charged with third-degree burglary in Hennepin County District Court.

Sarkar is currently in custody with a bail set at $40,000 and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

According to the complaint, Sachin Gupta, executive vice president of basketball operations for the Timberwolves, left a hard drive connected to a laptop computer in his office at Target Center on Feb. 2. When Gupta returned to work on Feb. 5, the hard drive was missing. Subsequent surveillance footage reviewed by security showed that Sarkar had entered Gupta’s office twice on Feb. 3, “after checking that no one saw him,” before leaving.

The specifics of the alleged theft are described in the complaint and in a search warrant filed by police to obtain court approval to search Sarkar’s apartment near Target Center. This includes a search for evidence related to potential financial gain from the sale of stolen Minnesota Timberwolves financial and proprietary information.
