IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Police have arrested an eastern Iowa man in connection to multiple burglaries in the area.  24-year-old Earl McKee, of Iowa City, is facing seven counts of theft, ranging from fifth to second degree.

Police say McKee stole various electronics from homes and vehicles over the past year.  He is also facing a drug charge after police smelled marijuana on him during his arrest.  

Police later found a white sock filled with bags of marijuana that they say McKee ditched.  His roommate, Brandon Mickens, was present for the arrest, and is charged with a controlled substance violation, and is accused of selling the drugs.

The two men are both in custody at the Johnson County Jail.
