A Cedar Rapids man has been accused of stealing a cell phone.

Jordan Beltramea, 21, was charged Aug. 12 with third-degree theft.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, Beltramea was reportedly observed on camera taking a cell phone that was not his and leaving the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center with it.

On Sept. 29, the victim identified Beltramea in the footage. Upon being confronted, he gave up the phone.

Under Miranda, he reportedly admitted to taking the phone. He said he needed it until he could purchase a new one.

The stolen phone is valued at $699.99

Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor.
