Police have accused a Waterloo man of stealing a purse.

Juhl Curtis, 25, was charged May 26 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Curtis allegedly stole a purse from a woman who had more than $1,000 in cash, lotto tickets, and other items in the purse. Curtis was identified by video surveillance and by his mother.

He allegedly admitted to stealing the purse and giving some of the contents to his mother. He said he took this purse and stashed it until he left the bar and threw it away after he took the contents, the complaint said.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
