SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The trial of a local man accused of driving into the Coralville Scheels and attempting to rob the store has been reset.

According to an Iowa City police press release, prior to the break-in at Scheel’s, Joseph Moreno had allegedly discharged a handgun in his apartment several times. Moreno’s roommates were found unharmed.

On Dec. 29, 2012, Moreno was taken into police custody. He was charged with first-degree burglary, reckless use of a firearm with property damage, carrying weapons, OWI, and first-degree criminal mischief.

Moreno pleaded not guilty to all charges on Feb. 6.

Moreno’s trial was originally set for May 21. On Monday he filed for an order of continuance that was not resisted by the state, according to an online court document.
