SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An Iowa City man was charged Sept. 25 after he and another subject allegedly deposited empty envelopes in ATMs, claiming they contained thousands of dollars.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Xavier Turner, 20, 418 Douglas St., was charged after police reportedly identified him and another subject on video surveillance footage depositing five empty envelopes into Turner’s account at two different ATMs. The other subject allegedly claimed the envelopes to contain $3,700, the complaint said.

The complaint said Turner was aware of what the other subject was doing. The pair allegedly withdrew money from the ATMs after the transactions, as well as making purchases at GameStop and Wal-Mart with the stolen money.

Turner is charged with second-degree theft, a Class-D felony.
