Authorities have accused two students of burglary in a University of Iowa residence hall.

Chanel Terpstra, 21, and Madeline Wise, 19, were charged Feb. 8 with third-degree burglary.

According to the arrest affidavit, the women entered an unoccupied room on the ninth floor of Catlett Hall. Terpstra reportedly stole approximately $1,310 worth of clothes and shoes, the affidavit said, and Wise allegedly took $25 and an Illinois driver’s license. Terpstra left with the items she took in a suitcase, the affidavit said.

The women were stopped by Catlett staff near an elevator while trying to leave the dorm, the affidavit said, and the staff member confiscated the suitcase and its contents. The cash and ID Wise took were not confiscated, the affidavit said.

Terpstra reportedly admitted to officers she went into the room intending to steal items, the affidavit said. Wise then gave the stolen cash and ID to officers.

Third-degree burglary is a Class-D felony.
