Iowa City police have charged a local woman after she allegedly failed to return more than $300 worth of materials to the Iowa City Public Library.

Whitney Ann Marquez, 23, 536 Elkhorn Trail, was charged April 22 with fourth-degree theft.

According to a police report, Marquez checked out 14 items from the library and allegedly failed to return them in a timely manner in December 2009.

The report said the library sent her a letter in February 2010, which was returned as undeliverable, and the police sent her a letter the following month, asking her to return the materials or contact them.

The police said Marquez failed to contact them or return the materials as of April 2010.

The total losses to the library were $381.
