Davenport police have added more charges against an Iowa Department of Corrections parolee who was arrested earlier this month on burglary and theft charges.

In addition to the third-degree burglary and third-degree theft charges filed  against Christopher Fitzgerald Williams when he was arrested Nov. 2, the 47-year-old Davenport man is now facing five additional counts of burglary third-degree and one additional count of theft second-degree and one additional count of theft first-degree.

He also is facing a charge of ongoing criminal conduct as a repeat offender.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Police Detective Craig Stone, on Oct. 21, Williams allegedly burgled Wide River Winery, 1128 Mound St., taking $150 in cash.

On Oct. 23, Williams allegedly burgled Davenport Public Storage, 5465 Tremont Ave. He used a rock to break into the office and stole $912 in cash.

On Oct. 31, Williams allegedly burgled The Green Thumbers, 3030 N. Brady St., taking property valued at $3,442.90. He also took a 2005 Dodge Ram pickup with a value of $12,000, according to the affidavits.

Also on Oct. 31, Williams allegedly burgled Major Art & Hobby, 201 E. 2nd St. He used a rock to break the glass door and then rummaged around the business, according to arrest affidavits.

On Nov. 2, Williams allegedly burgled Motorcycle Specialties, 923 W. 4th St. He used a piece of concrete to break the front window of the business and then took numerous items.

When he was arrested, Williams was charged in the Oct. 27 burglary of Midwest Radio Service, 5915 N. Brady St. The additional charges stem from the ongoing investigation.

First-degree theft is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years. Third-degree burglary and second-degree theft are each Class D felonies that carry a prison sentence of up to five years.

The charge of ongoing criminal conduct is a Class B felony that carries a prison sentence of up to 25 years.

Williams has numerous convictions for burglary on his criminal record.

He was last placed on parole from the Iowa Department of Corrections on June 27.

Williams was being held Saturday night in the Scott County Jail on cash-only bonds totaling $25,100, and cash or surety bonds totaling $15,000.  However, he is being held without bond for violating his parole.

Additional charges are possible as police continue their investigation.

An arraignment on the charges is scheduled for Dec. 7 in Scott County District Court.
