Recently, students who have been outside enjoying the fine Spring weather have had to be a bit more vigilant with their study breaks. There are three reports of laptops being stolen from VCU students while sitting outside. From the RTD:
Three Virginia Commonwealth University students had their laptop computers stolen in recent days as they sat outside in the late afternoon.
In two cases this week, the students were sitting near Monroe Park when their laptops were snatched by an assailant. A similar theft occurred last week outside the Shafer Court Dining Center.
No weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported in the thefts, wrote John M. Bennett, VCU’s senior vice president for finance and administration, in an e-mail alert to students.
