April 25, 2014
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University police are reminding the campus community to keep personal items secured in locked lockers when using the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center. The reminder comes after the arrest of a student Wednesday (April 23) on a preliminary charge of stealing items from a facility patron.
Jordan W. Shine, 21, a sophomore in the College of Liberal Arts from Indianapolis, faces a preliminary charge of theft, a Class D felony punishable by a maximum three years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. He was arrested after police viewed video from cameras placed in the center following a theft report.
The sports center has locks, or people also can bring in their own locks.
