David Charles stole brains from a museum and sold them on eBay according to police. The 21-year-old has been accused on breaking into the Indiana Medical History Museum's storage facility numerous times. He allegedly stole jars of human brain tissue and listed them for sale on the popular auction site.

A San Francisco man purchased a few jars from Charles' auctions but once he noticed the museum's sticker's on the jars, he called the museum to find out what was really going on. The man reportedly spent about $600 on the brains -- it's unclear what he planned to do with them.

David Charles was arrested over the brains after police set up a sting. They took him into custody in a Dairy Queen parking lot where they found marijuana and drug paraphernalia on his person. He was charged in connection with those things and authorities are still investigating to see if even more charges will be brought against him.

This has been going on for quite some time and a museum employee estimated that over 1,000 pieces had been stolen from the storage room over the past three months. Authorities estimated the stolen pieces to be worth $4,800. Everything stolen has since been returned to the museum.

The David Charles brains charges might be the least of his worries. It sounds like he had a few other things going on and he could find himself behind bars if he's convicted.
