DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A state audit says a former employee at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics illegally sold company computers to staffers and friends.

The audit released Friday alleges Brian Manary, a former information technology consultant, improperly sold the equipment while working for the hospital's Health Care Information Systems department between 2005 and 2013.

The audit says the hospital lost more than $57,000, and the amount is conservative. Several individuals claim they bought computers from Manary, but they provided insufficient information.

A spokesman for the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics says the hospital has implemented the audit's recommendations for better inventory records.

Court records show Manary was charged with ongoing criminal conduct and first-degree theft. He pleaded guilty to the theft charge as part of a plea deal.
