An Auburn man is facing a felony charge after police said he tried to pawn about 22 different tools that he had stolen.

Matthew J. Duby, of 151 Perrine St., was arrested on Nov. 1 after the Auburn Police Department utilized Leads Online, a database that stores photos and information of items purchased by secondhand dealers. Duby allegedly sold about 22 tools that did not belong to him to Pawn King, the store at 39 Genesee St.

Police said some of those items were returned to the owner and some were kept as evidence.

The 32-year-old was charged with first-degree falsifying business records, a class E felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor. He was released on his own recognizance and is expected to appear in Auburn City Court for arraignment on Monday.
