A Sioux City man has been accused of writing a check he did not have money to cover in order to buy a computer.

Timothy Schroeder, 28, was charged Aug. 10 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Schroeder and the victim communicated on Craigslist about buying a Dell laptop computer.

The victim received a check from Schroeder for $1,100 and took Schroeder’s driver’s license number.

The check was returned and marked nonsufficient funds. The victim notified Schroeder on Aug. 29, and Schroeder reportedly failed to pay.

Schroeder has previous theft convictions on June 28, 2004, Oct. 28, 2012, Dec. 3, 2012, Dec. 17, 2012, Dec. 24, 2012, and Aug. 5, 2013.

Second-degree theft is a Class-C felony.
