A Coralville woman has been accused of vandalizing the offices of a local cab company before allegedly urinating inside one of the company’s vehicles.

Nancy Kuntz, 44, 820 Second St. Apt. 231, was charged June 11 with third-degree criminal mischief.
According to an Iowa City police complaint, Kuntz resigned from her job at 5 Star Tax on June 11.

That day, she returned to the business and allegedly broke a window in the company’s office area, broke a key off in a door-handle lock, ripped phone cords out of the wall, and ripped phone and electric cables out of a box on the rear well of the building. She also reportedly vandalized the cab she drove, a 1998 Nissan Quest Minivan, ripping out the front off a cab fare meter, put a sticky substance on the seat belts, and possibly urinated inside the cab.

The total damage estimated is approximately $800.

Third-degree criminal mischief is an aggravated misdemeanor.
