Coralville Man Arrested for Theft & Burglary // Police Found Him with Stolen Television in Alley

A 31-year-old Coralville man was arrested in Iowa City after being discovered by police walking down an alley with a stolen television:
The Iowa City Police Department received a call at about 11:03 a.m. Wednesday of a man walking down an alley in Iowa City with a stolen TV in his hands, according to Iowa City police complaints. The city has recently seen multiple daytime burglaries, police said... 

A police investigation found that the front door of a home on the 2200 block of H Street a few blocks away had been forced open and a TV was missing, the complaints said. The home owner identified the stolen TV through photographs and said it was worth $1,200.
The accused thief had multiple active warrants for his arrest for probation violation and failure to appear in court. He's been charged with second-degree theft and third-degree burglary. Both charges are class D felonies and are punishable by up to five years in prison.
