According to the criminal complaint, Anfernee Penny Frazier, 22, of Hiawatha, entered two homes in the 7000 and 7400 blocks of Prairie Heights Drive SW in Cedar Rapids between July 31 and August 2, and a third home in the 3400 block of F Avenue NE between August 5 and 6. The residents were present in each home at the time of the burglary, police said.

While in the homes, police said Frazier stole various electronics and credit cards and then allegedly tried to use the stolen credit cards to make unauthorized purchases, the complaint states.

Police said a second suspect, Alissa Jade Bear Killer, 22, of Hiawatha, is also accused of making purchases with credit cards from one of the Prairie Heights Drive homes.

Police said they were able to track some of the stolen property to Frazier’s residence in Hiawatha by using “special applications embedded in the electronic devices,” according to the complaint.

After obtaining a search warrant for Frazier’s residence, police said they recovered some of the stolen property, including multiple game systems and other electronics, which were valued at more than $1,000. Marijuana and a digital scale with marijuana residue were also located during the search, they said.

Frazier faces two counts of second-degree burglary, as well as charges of second-degree theft, false use of a credit card, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bear Killer faces three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. Both are being held at Linn County Jail.
