A Coralville man has been accused of stealing, then pawning, numerous items.

Adam Bennett, 22, was charged June 30 with third-degree burglary and second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, on July 2, officers interviewed a man about a robbery that had occurred while he was away. The man listed items he knew to be missing.

On July 17, another person told officials he was a witness to the burglary and identified Bennett as being at the apartment with a bag full of items.

Investigators were then led to a pawnshop in Minneapolis, where they learned Bennett had reportedly pawned the robbery victim’s laptop and X-Box for $251.50.

The total value for the stolen items is around $2,650.

Third-degree burglary and second-degree theft are Class-D felonies.
