Missing newspapers found in trashcans near Martin, Lynch Halls

by -

A large number of newspapers reported missing earlier were found in trash cans near Martin Hall and Lynch Hall.

More than 300 newspapers were taken from newspaper racks earlier this morning. Newspaper theft is a crime and a form of censorship according to the Student Press Law Center.

Editors from the South Texan staff went around campus looking in trash cans near the dorms when the discoveries were made. University Police were called to the scene and a report was made.

“I think it’s a shame when people take such drastic actions when all they have to do is come talk to us,” said Mark Molina, Managing Editor of the South Texan.

The case is under investigation. No charges have been filed.
