A Coralville man has been accused of stealing two TVs from an Iowa City Walmart.

Lary Hook II, 34, was charged Sept. 17 with fourth-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Hook entered Walmart, 919 Highway 1 W., and put two TVs in a cart before heading toward the retailer’s front doors.

Staff challenged him at the doors before asking to see a receipt for the items. He reportedly eluded the staff, loaded the TVs into his car, and drove away. 

Using still photos, video, a written statement, and booking photos, officers were able to identify Hook. 

The cost of the TVs is estimated at $456 plus tax.

Fourth-degree theft is a serious misdemeanor.
