Police have accused an Iowa City man of stealing gold jewelry in order to sell it.

Andrew Irvin, 23, 738 Bayridge Drive, was charged Feb. 15 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Irvin took cash, gold jewelry, and a television from a residence between Feb. 13 and Feb. 14. The residence was not ransacked and it appeared the suspects knew the location of the stolen items. The codefendant was a former employee of the victim's and had been to his house in the past.

Irvin allegedly drove the codefendant to the Pit Stop, 300 Kirkwood Ave., on Feb. 15 to sell the gold jewelry, and he received a total of $1,486. The victim's wife identified the jewelry as hers and said the jewelry originally valued at approximately $5,000, the complaint said.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
