An Iowa City man has been charged after allegedly stealing money and a cell phone.

DeQuan Miles, 19, was charged June 23 with fourth-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers met with the victim who provided a description of Miles, including the clothing he had worn and a direction of travel.

Officers later located Miles on the Pedestrian Mall wearing the same clothing described by the victim. Upon being approached by officers, he consented to a search of himself, but the money was not located.

Officers identified that Miles was in possession of a Motorola Electrify M cell phone that had been reported stolen hours earlier by the victim.

Miles told officers that he bought the phone from an unknown male in the Pedestrian Mall and admitted that it did not belong to him.

Fourth-degree theft is a serious misdemeanor.
