Newspaper thefts continue

Stacks of Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Eastern News were reportedly stolen once again from several locations on campus.

Areas where the newspapers were stolen include Booth Library, residence halls and various buildings like Coleman Hall.

Anyone with information regarding the thefts is encouraged to contact The News staff at 217-581-2812.

A police report was filed Tuesday with the University Police Department.

Officer James Williams of the UPD said Wednesday the matter was still being looked into.

He said the severity of the crime depends on factors such as the cost to the university and to the advertisers in each edition.

Williams said it was still under investigation.
