Iowa City police seek help finding theft suspect

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Police in Iowa City are asking the public for help locating a man who is wanted on charges of stealing from an elderly resident.

The police department said Monday that 25-year-old Matthew Jacob Brown is facing two arrest warrants for second-degree theft.

Investigators say that Brown bilked an elderly resident out of “thousands of dollars” after performing a small amount of yard work and charging exorbitant fees. They say they have been unable to find Brown and that it’s possible he may have also scammed others living in the area.

Anyone with information about Brown is asked to contact police at 319-356-5276.
