Davenport couple accused of stealing

Authorities have accused a couple of stealing from a local business.

Gregory Bubenyak, 58, and Lyda Bubenyak, 43, were charged Feb. 5 with second-degree theft.

According to the arrest affidavit, the two allegedly placed more than $1,500 worth of items into a garbage can, then placed the can near the rear exit of the facility near the lumber yard.

The pair then made a cheap purchase in order to gain access to the area in which they stashed the merchandise. They placed the garbage can in their vehicle and drove away. No other items were recovered.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
