A 40 year-old man was arrested on Tuesday night by three undercover policemen in the Student Union. He was attempting to leave the Students’ Union building with a student’s bag, and is believed to be behind the recent spate of thefts in the SUSU buildings.
Police apprehended him as he tried to leave the Old Sports Hall through a fire exit with a the bag, placing him immediately in handcuffs.
He was arrested on suspicion of “going equipped for theft”, but police remain unsure which exact charge he shall receive. He is currently being held for questioning.
Students are advised to remain vigilant as other thieves may be operating in the area, and to report any suspicious behaviour to either University Security or the reception desk in SUSU.
More information shall be published in the event he is charged.
