A University of Iowa student has been charged with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police report, Aiste Dobrovolskaite, 21, W214 Hillcrest, was charged Sunday with second-degree theft.

According to police, Dobrovolskaite was observed entering two different dressing rooms with several items and leaving the rooms without them. She was reportedly stopped as she left the store with her backpack.

Police officials allege that the backpack contained a total of 38 stolen clothing items totaling $1,262.

Dobrovolskaite admitted she took the items without paying for them because she did not have the money, according to the report.

Second-degree theft is considered a Class-D felony and is punishable of up to five years in jail and a maximum fine of $7,500.
