An Iowa City man faces numerous charges after he allegedly broke into an occupied home Sept. 9.

According to a series of Iowa City police complaints, Nadjib Bourahla, 18, 11 N. Mount Vernon Drive, was charged after officers responded to a report of a burglary. Bourahla allegedly entered the residence, 230 S. Dodge St., around 4:15 a.m. and went into numerous rooms in the residence, including one where a female subject was sleeping, according to the complaints.

The complaints said the female subject awoke to find Bourahla allegedly taking items from her jewelry box, including a diamond solitaire ring valued at approximately $9,000. When the victim confronted Bourahla, he ran out of the house, according to the complaints.

Officers patrolling on foot located Bourahla, who allegedly dropped a small ziplock bag containing marijuana and several items of jewelry upon contact, according to the complaints. The complaints said Bourahla was identified by both the female victim and a male witness as the burglar.

Bourahla is charged with second-degree burglary, a Class-C felony, second-degree theft, a Class-D felony, and possession of marijuana, a serious misdemeanor.
