ISU senior defensive back David Sims is under investigation for the unlawful use of a credit card.

A search warrant was executed Tuesday for Sims’ apartment, said Ames Police Cmdr. Mike Brennan.

Veronica Gonzalez, of Des Moines, reported her credit card stolen, and that it had been used at several Ames businesses, Brennan said.

Gonzalez declined to comment when contacted by the Iowa State Daily.

According to police records, she lent the card to her son, who took it to Ames. At some point during the night, the card was stolen and used at several Ames businesses. Gonzalez reported the credit card stolen Saturday.

The case has been turned over to the Story County Attorney’s Office.

As of Thursday, no charges have been filed, said Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes.

Tom Kroeschell, associate athletics director, declined to comment Wednesday.

A voicemail left for Sims was not immediately returned.

Sims, a junior college transfer in 2009, was last season’s Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year.
