JESUP, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an Oelwein man suspected of several crimes in northeast Iowa has been accused of stealing more than $13,000 from Cub and Boy Scouts who operated a food booth during Jesup Farmers Days.

Jesup police say 21-year-old Jason Cole is charged with theft and burglary. He’s suspected of breaking into the food booth early on July 9 and taking money the Scouts had raised serving meals. His attorney in a Fayette County case didn’t immediately respond to a message left Tuesday by The Associated Press.

Cole also has been accused of burglarizing a church in Oelwein and of several break-ins in Bremer County.
