A North Liberty man was charged after allegedly committing a series of thefts.

Jonathon Jones, 42, was charged June 21, July 9, and Sunday with two counts of third-degree burglary, fourth-degree theft, and second-degree theft.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Jones allegedly entered two persons’ trailers without their permission and took several construction tools worth approximately $3,000 on June 18.

On June 20, a search warrant was granted to officers to search Jones’ residence.

Following the search, the tools were reportedly located in a shed at Jones’ home.

After being read his Miranda rights, he allegedly admitted to entering the trailers and taking the tools.

On June 18, Jones also reportedly went to the Coralville Wal-Mart and received assistance in picking out a 70-inch Vizio TV.

Store employees apparently were under the impression that he had paid for the television and helped him take it to his car. The TV was valued $1,698.

Second-degree theft and third-degree burglary are Class-D felonies. Fourth-degree theft is a serious misdemeanor.
