Authorities have accused a local man of stealing a car from the Walgreens parking lot.

Eric McDaniel, 28, was charged Monday with second-degree burglary and second-degree robbery.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, McDaniel approached the  vehicle in the parking lot of Walgreens near the intersection of Muscatine and First Avenues. McDaniel allegedly opened the driver’s side door of the vehicle, shoved the owner’s boyfriend, who was in the vehicle, and said “bye” as the boyfriend exited the vehicle, the complaint said.

McDaniel then backed out of the parking spot and left the parking lot in the vehicle. He was later apprehended when the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop. The defendant was reportedly driving the vehicle; he placed in custody and was taken to Iowa City police for testing, the complaint said.

Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony, as is second-degree burglary.
