University Police Officer Tony Farmer reported to police headquarters in response to a stolen cell phone March 6. The complainant said that around 8:15 a.m. she left the phone lying on a table in her chemistry lab.
When she returned for the phone, it was missing. The phone was a white iPhone 4S and had a black, rubber Hello Kitty cover. The student claimed her two lab partners remained at the table where she left the phone.
Farmer attempted to contact the students, but the class was already dismissed. Farmer advised the student to cancel her phone services. The student reported the value of the phone at $300.
On March 4, a student reported to Lt. Isaac Strickland that his maroon NEXT mountain bike was stolen from the northern stairwell of University Terrace II. The bicycle was last seen March 2.
“As I’ve said several times, if students didn’t leave things lying around, it wouldn’t get stolen,” said Police Chief Wayne Willcox. “Students need to be more careful and watchful over their things.”
