Students Arrested For Stealing... Exit Signs

Over the weekend, police at the University of Wisconsin have solved a case of missing exit signs. The signs were being removed from the residence halls on campus.

The UWPD said they received a call on Saturday from UW Housing, who told police they were seeing a trend of exit signs going missing in several of their residence halls. After reviewing security camera footage, police were able to identify the suspects, two UW students who are also roommates. Police said they were able to catch the students in the act.

Police said the students were planning to take an exit sign from all 20 UW residence halls but, alas, were busted after stealing just18.

Both students were cited for the thefts and for unauthorized entry into campus buildings.
