I enjoy perusing the campus crime notes because they usually contain relatively harmless stories about public urination or intoxication. But I couldn't pass up posting today's gem:
Where: Facilities Services Building C
When: Tuesday at about 11 a.m.
What: A radio left unattended was stolen from a shelf in the bathroom, the Department of Public Safety reported. The radio was valued at $2,300.
You're telling me that the Facilities guys have a radio on their bathroom shelf that's worth over two grand? Was it a Bose home theater system? Or a Bang-Olufsen BeoSound 1 with additional speaker attachments?

Either there's a decimal point missing in the price, or an insurance company is getting taken for a ride. ben
