A 33-year-old Hingham man was arrested on Thursday after employees at Braintree Hill Office Park saw a man believed to have stolen several laptops earlier in the week.

Management had distributed photos of a person they believed was responsible for the theft of four laptop computers from various businesses within the complex.

On Thursday around 7 a.m., employees recognized the man in an employee’s cubicle and called police.

Police said the suspect appeared to know he was being watched and exited the building where responding officers apprehended him.

Patrick W. Durgin, 33, of Hingham was arrested and charged with four counts of larceny over $250 and one count of trespassing.
