A local man has been accused of stealing two cell phones from a local recreation center with a juvenile accomplice.

Dimione Walker, 20, was charged Aug. 10 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, two people left their cell phones in their shoes on the north bleachers of Scanlon Gymnasium. Walker and a juvenile accomplice were both present.

Walker asked his accomplice to remove the two cell phones from the shoes, the complaint said. The accomplice allegedly took the phone and walked out of the gym with Walker and exited through the back door.

The juvenile accomplice told police officials that he gave the phones to Walker, the complaint said. The estimated value for both phones is $1,200.

A second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
