Student's bank account is spring broken into

At 12:13 p.m. Tuesday, a Miami University student said to OPD he believed someone had stolen $200 from his bank account.

He received from his bank a notice of withdrawal originating in San Antonio, Texas, despite the fact he had never been there.

The victim said his account information may have been stolen over spring break, during which time he was in Mexico with a group of friends. He also said several other people on the trip had experienced similar issues with their bank accounts. There are no leads or suspects at this time.


'Well, I do de'chair' you are under arrest'

At 2:25 a.m. Thursday, an OPD officer was travelling southbound on Campus Avenue when he noticed two males walking down the sidewalk carrying a red chair.

The officer pulled up to the duo and stopped and the male carrying the chair. The male dropped the chair like it was hot and scrammed.

The officer began pursuing the male on foot and his partner also ran. A short chase ensued. The male was apprehended at the intersection of Main Street and Central Avenue and promptly arrested.

He was taken to the station and charged with obstructing official business and taken to Butler County Jail.

The fraternity from which the chair was stolen has not said whether they will be pressing charges.
