Authorities have accused a Cedar Rapids man with trying to steal clothing and chargers from a fraternity.

Jason Jenney, 34, was charged Tuesday with second-degree burglary.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Jenney admitted to entering a fraternity without permission through an unlocked back door. He said he told officers he was looking for a guy named Jeff.

A person at the fraternity walked down to the first floor and saw Jenney in the residence, the complaint said. Jenney had a pile of clothing and chargers in his hands that did not belong to him.

Jenney dropped the belongings and ran out the door after the person confronted him, the complaint said.

Officers found Jenney about two blocks away from the residence.

Second-degree burglary is a Class-C felony.
