College hit by smooth criminals

A theft was reported by the Residence Hall Association (RHA) on Aug. 26 at 10:30 a.m. A yellow and blue banner saying “Welcome to TCNJ Residence Hall Association” was removed from the front entrance of the College.

The banner was placed there by three RHA members on Aug. 23 at 8:30 a.m. At 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 24 an RHA associate reported the banner missing to RHA. RHA members did not report the theft until Aug. 26 because they wanted to ask around to see if an RHA associate had removed the banner, but this produced no results.

The stolen banner was worth $350.
