A Michigan man has been accused of using an apartment as a party house.

Fazal Choudhury, 22, was charged June 16 with third-degree burglary, possession of a controlled substance, and second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers were originally called to 2401 Highway 6 E. Apt. 4426 because of a trespassing report.

Investigations allegedly revealed Choudhury gained access to the victim’s apartment, stole several items, and was using the space as a party place. He reportedly took the victim’s computer to Money and More while driving the victim’s car. He had wanted to pawn the computer but was rejected.

There were several other items missing that were not recovered. These valued at several thousand dollars.

Choudhury fled the scene prior to the officers’ arrival, but he left an item there that placed him at the scene and allegedly left bags of marijuana. Spare keys to the victim’s vehicle were also missing when he left. Witnesses saw him in the apartment when he was not authorized to be there.

Second-degree theft and third-degree burglary are Class-D felonies. Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor.
