A local man has been accused of stealing two laptops and a camera.

Lyle Hopkins, 28, was charged Dec. 12, 2012, with second-degree theft.

According to a complaint, a Johnson County deputy arrived at Hopkins’ residence, 1705 Prairie Du Chien Road Lot 9, to speak about an unrelated issue.

The deputy requested a search of Hopkins’ residence, and Hopkins granted consent. During the search, two laptop computers and a camera were allegedly located, the complaint said. The items were allegedly listed as stolen items.

According to the complaint, the items were taken from a residential burglary that occurred on Nov. 10, 2012. Hopkins told officials that he received the items from another male subject two weeks prior to the search.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
