|Iowa State DB Investigated in Credit Card Case
|AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say Iowa State defensive back David Sims is being investigated in connection with a stolen credit card, though no charges have been filed.
Ames police commander Mike Brennan says a Des Moines woman reported July 17 that her credit card, which her son had taken to Ames, was stolen. The card was then used at several Ames-area businesses.
Police obtained a warrant and searched Sims' apartment Tuesday, but they wouldn't say what they found.
Sims, a senior from Gainesville, Fla., was the Big 12's Defensive Newcomer of the Year in 2009 after leading the Cyclones with five interceptions.
A telephone message left Friday for Sims wasn't immediately returned. Coach Paul Rhoads has declined to comment.
The investigation was first reported by The Des Moines Register.
