A man who police said stole computers from West Virginia State University was arrested in Columbus, Ohio
Yusuf Mcleod was approached by security personnel officers at Ohio Dominican University after they spotted him loading and unloading Apple computers from his car on campus, police said.
Police said he then took off, throwing some computers out of his car. Police then found more computers-- all belonging to West Virginia State University. Authorities at West Virginia State had noticed Tuesday that the computers were missing from the Cole Complex, the school’s communications building.
Erika Forsythe, vice president for university relations and operations at West Virginia State, released a statement Thursday in regard to the thefts.
"The university is currently looking into the matter as part of an ongoing investigation," Forsythe said.
Mcleod was being held in jail on a $200,000 bond.
