The backpack was stolen from the unsecured locker while the student was working out. The backpack was later located inside a Gregory Gym 4th floor mens restroom. A wallet containing identification cards, a credit card, a debit card and $300.00 cash was stolen from the backpack. Loss value: $300.00.

Crime Prevention Tip

I dont understand why someone would risk loosing their valuable property by not investing a quarter to lock a locker. In this case, the student would still have his $300.00 and would not need to worry as much about identity theft if he had used a quarter to secure the locker he had placed his backpack in. If you cant invest that quarter, then do not bring oyur valuable property to the gym.
