A man has been arrested for allegedly stealing several jars of human brain tissue from a museum and selling them online.

David Charles, 21, was arrested and charged with burglary on Dec. 16.

Investigators say Charles allegedly broke into the Indiana Medical History Museum multiple times this year and stole the jars of human brain tissue.
