IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- An Iowa City man has been charged with theft after police say he was selling stolen bus passes that were taken from the Hy-Vee store he worked at.

Douglas Marquel Littleton, 19, is charged with Theft 2nd Degree.

Police say they were called to Tate High School on Thursday on a report of someone selling stolen bus passes.

The school tells police that they recovered one of the passes by buying it from Littleton.

Littleton admitted to police that he had the passes but told officers that he had "given them away".

Police say Littleton had 20 bus passes in his pocket and all the passes, including the one recovered by the school, had serial numbers matching the range that had been reported stolen from the Hy-Vee on Waterfront.

Littleton told police that he bought the stack of passes from a guy for $50 and knew they were probably stolen.

Police say Littleton worked at the Waterfront Hy-Vee and his last day of work was the day the passes went missing.

Police say the stolen passes are worth more than $2,000.
