On Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 12:25 a.m., Campus Police was sent to investigate a purse snatching on the upper level of Lot 12.

The owner said she had placed her purse on the trunk of her car, and walked approximately 20 to 25 feet toward the parking gate to help her friend carry some items.

When the owner returned to her car after five minutes, the purse was gone.

The total value of the stolen items is $382.40.
