A Coralville woman has been accused of taking belongings out of vehicles.

Melony Cribbs, 34, was charged Monday with third-degree burglary.

According to a Johnson County sheriff's complaint, a witness reportedly observed the Cribbs entering a number of vehicles and taking items.

Officers confronted her, but she denied having taken anything.

Officers identified Cribbs as being in possession of $200 worth of merchandise that was later determined to be from someone else’s car.

The unidentified victim was able to identify the items and verify that Cribbs did not have a right to possess them.

Third-degree burglary is an aggravated misdemeanor.
