A UI student and IMU Catering employee was charged last month after allegedly using someone’s ID to steal items from Mayflower Market.

Junqi Ji, 19, 1122 N. Dubuque St., was charged Jan. 31 with third-degree burglary, possession of burglar’s tools, and identity theft.

Ji allegedly went to the Mayflower Hall front desk wearing a Mayflower Market shirt and claimed to be employed there. She used an actual employee’s ID to check out a key, police said.

According to police, Ji was seen on video entering Mayflower with an empty bag, then leaving with the bag full. A front desk worker reportedly identified Ji in a photo lineup.

Third-degree burglary is a Class D felony generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
