BATON ROUGE - A former Orleans Parish School Board member has been arrested for allegedly stealing an iPad and other items from the State Capitol.

Louisiana State Police troopers arrested 65-year-old James "Jimmy" Fahrenholtz, of New Orleans, on one count each of felony theft, possession of stolen property and obstruction of justice.

Troopers received a complaint last week regarding the theft of a brown leather case file containing the device, keyboard case and various documents. Detectives developed information leading to a home in New Orleans where they made contact with Fahrenholtz, who denied knowledge of the incident or the stolen property.

After getting a search warrant, troopers found the stolen items.

Fahrenholtz surrendered to authorities Monday. It was unknown if he is represented by an attorney who could comment on the charges.
