Iowa City police arrested a woman for allegedly stealing a car while the owner was in jail.

Daisha Adams, 19, address unknown, was charged with unauthorized use of a credit card, forgery, and second-degree theft.

According to police records, Adams took the alleged victim’s car while he was incarcerated for 42 days.

Adams then reportedly forged the victim’s name on the title before selling it in Cedar Rapids for $150. The alleged victim’s laptop, iPod, game system, clothing, and Electronic Benefits Transfer card were in the car, authorities said.

Police said Adams also made a $1.22 purchase with the card. Several witnesses and the reported victim picked Adams out of a lineup.
