A Coralville man was arrested after allegedly stealing a woman’s wallet and using her credit card to buy a PlayStation 3.

Nathaniel Burgs, 53, Coralville, was charged March 9 with second-degree burglary, unauthorized use of a credit card, third-degree theft, and identity theft.

According to police reports, a woman was home when her home was burglarized and her wallet was stolen, including her credit card.

Thirty minutes later, the report said, Burg allegedly used the card to purchase gasoline at Casey’s Convenience Store and a PlayStation 3 at Kmart, totaling $320.99.

Burg was identified by surveillance video at Casey’s and Kmart, and the credit-card numbers on the Kmart receipt corresponded with those on the woman’s credit card.

The complaint said Burg has previous theft convictions from April 7 and July 1998.

Burg was also charged Feb. 14 with unauthorized use of a credit card and third-degree theft for allegedly stealing, then using a woman’s credit card 14 times on Feb. 13.
