SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An Iowa City man turned himself over to authorities after he "felt bad" about stealing nearly $1,500 of merchandise from Target.

Robert Lee Mitchell III, 25, 540 Dubuque St., was charged July 22 with second-degree theft and fourth-degree theft.

Complaints said Mitchell stole a flat-screen television valued at $250, three video games, and 22 gift cards valued at $50 each.

Mitchell then allegedly took the television to Scheels, asking employees there to aid him with removing the security tag from the device.

Mitchell later reported himself to police, standing outside the mall as officers arrived. Complaints said he admitted to stealing the merchandise.
