A Newton, Iowa, man has been accused of using a check that was not his.

Joshua Cupples, 36, was charged April 12 with third-degree theft.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Cupples arrived at the Watch Company Kiosk where he purchased merchandise for a total of $742.

He wrote a personal check issued from the Newton National Bank. The checking account used was subscribed to Robert Walker.

Walker did not authorize the transaction, and a Watch Company employee positively identified Cupples in a photo lineup.

Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor.
