Authorities have accused a local woman of stealing a laptop from city bus.

Alyssa Williams, 18, was charged on Feb. 18 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, the victim reported to the police that she forgot her Apple Macbook Pro laptop, valued at $1,400, on a city bus. After the police obtained a video from the bus, Williams was observed sitting in a seat behind a codefendant, the complaint said.

The codefendant allegedly handed the laptop to Williams, and Williams concealed it. They both exited the bus without turning over the laptop, and Williams made no effort to contact the police or city bus staff to return it, the compliant said.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
