Purse theft occurs in Snyder, Phillips halls
An 18-year-old MSU student reported her purse stolen from Snyder and Phillips halls during a class Oct. 10.
MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said the theft occurred sometime between 3-4:35 p.m.
The student put her purse on the floor next to her seat at the beginning of her class, and when she went to leave class, it was gone.
The purse was a small black leather bag with three zippers and a gold chain shoulder strap valued at $25, McGlothian-Taylor said.
It contained about $500 worth of electronics — the student’s white iPhone, valued at $400, and a green iPod Nano, valued at $100.
There also was a bus pass, an MSU student ID and a bike lock key missing. About $5 in change also was in the purse.
There are no suspects, and the incident is under investigation, McGlothian-Taylor said.
