LONDON — A 23-year-old Indiana man has stolen human brains from a museum and later sold them on online, a media report said.

According to The Guardian, David Charles, 23, of Indianapolis, was sentenced to four years in jail after admitting stealing human tissue from the Indiana Medical History Museum.

The museum is a former hospital for the insane founded in 1848 and later converted into a museum with an autopsy room and anatomical museum that displays preserved specimens, mostly brains, organised by pathology.

Magistrate Amy Barbar sentenced him to two year of home detention and two years of probation, county prosecutor spokesman Anthony Deer said.

Charles was arrested after a man who purchased brain online tracked the items to the museum, the report said. He was arrested on charges of burglary and stealing.

Investigators, who seized 80 jars of human tissue from Charles, identified him from a fingerprint that he had left behind at the museum.
