Iowa City police arrested a man for allegedly stealing more than $20,000 worth of items from an Iowa City house last fall.

Steven Bell, 22, address unknown, was charged Nov. 29, 2010, with first- and second-degree theft and third-degree burglary.

According to police reports, Bell allegedly entered a Woodside Drive residence at Oct. 19, 2010, and stole two laptops, two flat-screen televisions, a PlayStation 3, and other electronic items.

The report said a witness saw Bell loading the larger television into the alleged victim’s car, which was reportedly later stolen.

Bell was arrested in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, on warrants later that evening, wearing clothing that matched the witness’ description, the report said.

The alleged victim’s car was recovered Nov. 5 in the lot where Bell was arrested, according to the report.

The alleged victim’s residential property was valued roughly $4,600, and his car, $16,000.
