CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Falls man is now in custody in Manatee County, Florida, for 11 Iowa arrest warrants for theft.

Cedar Falls Police say 33-year-old Troy Engle opened a checking account and wrote over $22,000 of checks to Cedar Falls businesses in late October.

Police say checks included purchases of various items such as jewelry, bicycles and a vehicle.

They allegedly were then pawned for cash and other items.

Police say they also recovered the stolen vehicle.

Dan Deery Motors, Europe Cycle and Ski, B&B West Convenience Store, Dean Jewelers, LR Jewelers, Precieux Arts Jewelers, and Hy-Vee are all alleged victims.

Engle is being held for multiple counts of theft on a $62,000 bond.

He will be returned to Iowa to face criminal charges.
