An Iowa City man was charged with theft after allegedly altering a money order from a University of Iowa Community Credit Union last month, a report said.

Michael Dolezal, 37, 3929 W. Overlook Road, was charged Feb. 10 with second-degree theft, forgery, and conducting fraudulent practices.

According to a police complaint, Dolezal passed an altered money order at a Cedar Rapids Hy-Vee store Jan. 13.

After investigating, Iowa City police reported that they determined the original money order from the credit union was made out for $1. The report said officials believe Dolezal later changed the order to $1,200.

Once he retrieved the $1,200 in cash, the report said, he fled and has not been seen or heard from since.

Second-degree theft, forgery, and second-degree fraudulent practice are all Class D felonies, punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
