Waterloo man indicted on breaking into car, stealing purse

The Waterloo Police Department reports the arrest of James W. Rogers, 47, of Waterloo on an indictment warrant for two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny, as well as fourth-degree criminal mischief.

The charges stem from an incident where Rogers is accused of breaking out a car window and stealing a purse, which contained a debit card — and then withdrawing money from the account associated with that debit card.

He was also arrested on December 1st on a warrant for petit larceny and trespass. These charges stem from an incident in March of this year where he allegedly stole approximately $75 worth of scrap metal from a property where a volunteer organization was rehabilitating a home.

Rogers will answer those charges on December 7th.
