Two Iowa City men have been accused of stealing items worth more than $1,000 from a truck.

Devinity Reynolds, 22, and Undre McClure, 20, were charged Monday with third-degree burglary from an unoccupied vehicle and second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officials responded to two people saying they had located two subjects who allegedly stole items from their truck.

When officers arrived at the scene, the two people said they were eating and their truck was parked in a ramp.

During their meal, they received a call from their boss asking if they were using the company credit card, and they said they were not.

When the two went to their vehicle, they found it had been broken into and items were missing.

They decided to look through the mall and spotted two subjects wearing the their backpacks and attempting to sell their things.

The two confronted the subjects and called the police. Under Miranda, Reynolds and McClure allegedly admitted to breaking into the unlocked truck, taking the items, and attempting to sell them for cash.

Third-degree burglary from an unoccupied vehicle is an aggravated misdemeanor. Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
