A local man has been accused of stealing cleaning supplies from Hawks Ridge.

Alexander Plasa, 20, was charged on Feb. 5 with third-degree burglary, second-degree theft, and third-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police compliant, Plasa broke into a storage unit at Hawks Ridge. The total to replace the damage to the storage unit was $120. The items taken from the unit were two vacuums and cleaning supplies. The total cost for items is $650. In an interview with police, Plasa reportedly admitted to kicking in the storage unit door and taking a vacuum, the complaint said.

On Jan. 26, a search warrant was conducted and items from numerous burglaries were seized. These items included, but are not limited to, a 60-inch TV, a laptop, an Xbox 360, as well as several other electronics, clothing, schoolbooks, music equipment jewelry, and other miscellaneous items, the complaint said.

Plasa is the primary resident of the house and was allowing a friend to stay with him. Plasa and the friend were involved in the burglary together, the complaint said.

Plasa said he thought they were stolen but did not want to confront the friend, did not call police, and did not notify owners, the complaint said.

Third-degree burglary is a Class-D felony. Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony. Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor.
