Theft: A UT reported that her backpack, containing a German textbook, and the keys to her vehicle was stolen after she had fallen asleep in a chair located on the 3rd floor. Loss Value: $50.00.

Crime Prevention Tip:

Big over stuffed chairs offer a tempting respite from the stress of college. These over stuffed chairs with students sleeping in them offer tempting targets for a thief. Take a minute and use your backpack as either a pillow or footrest. Disturbing you is not a risk a thief is likely to take.
