A Cedar Rapids man was charged with burglarizing several unlocked vehicles with three other accomplices.

Kenneth Lee III, Cedar Rapids, was charged March 22 with two charges of conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor and third-degree burglary.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, on Jan. 5, Lee and three friends drove to Iowa City, where they burglarized unlocked vehicles in various locations around town before returning to Cedar Rapids.

During the day, Lee pawned a stolen GPS device that was allegedly taken from a vehicle earlier. A codefendant used a stolen credit card numerous times that night before discarding it, which was caught on video.

According the complaint, a second codefendant informed police in a recorded interview that the group committed vehicle burglaries on unlocked vehicles with a fourth unidentified suspect acting as a lookout.

Third-degree burglary is an aggravated misdemeanor.

Conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor is an aggravated misdemeanor.
