An Iowa City woman has been accused of stealing cash from coworkers’ purses.

Alissa Hoffer, 20, was charged Sept. 25 with fourth-degree theft.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, officers were dispatched to the UI Continuing Education Facility following theft complaints.

Three separate people accused Hoffer, who works in Room 219, of stealing cash from their purses. In all, items reported stolen were valued at $380, the complaint said.

Hoffer reportedly admitted to stealing the cash and said she has “impulsive thoughts” to steal things.

Hoffer has faced previous theft charges in the past.

Fourth-degree theft is a serious misdemeanor.
