More than 300 copies of the latest issue of the South Texan were reported stolen this morning from news racks in campus dormitories.
The current issue features a top story about a Nov. 4 incident involving three Javelina football players who were suspended from the football program after charges including possession of marijuana and child endangerment.
The current issue was placed on news racks at dorms throughout campus last night between 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
The first report to the University Police Department (UPD) occured this morning at 8:30 a.m. after the editor of the South Texan called to report newspapers stolen from the news rack at the University Village dormitories. A second call to UPD was made at approximately 10:30 a.m. after the South Texan’s distribution manager reported that newspapers at all the dorms, with the exception of Martin Hall, were also stolen.
The case is currently under investigation.
