Reported fraternity theft a misunderstanding

May 12, 2015  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University police have determined that a reported burglary at the FarmHouse fraternity on Sunday (May 10) was a misunderstanding, and two computers that were taken have been returned.

A man and woman, who saw morning media reports on Monday (May 11), immediately went to the Purdue Police Department and said they were the ones who had left with the computers. The two said an individual at the house had granted them permission to go in and look for scrap items in the soon-to-be demolished house. Once they realized the computers had been reported as a theft, they returned them to Purdue police.
