Textbooks reported stolen at Faner Hall

By Gus Bode

More textbooks have been reported stolen after a week of feasting, which is the third crime of its kind since the start of the semester.

On Nov. 26 at approximately 2:30 p.m., SIUC police were notified that a break-in occurred at Faner Hall. SIUC Police Chief Todd Sigler said 16 textbooks were reported stolen from the fourth floor of the building, valued at approximately $1,000.

Sigler said it is estimated the burglary occurred sometime during the dates of Nov. 22-26. He said this was all the information the police had at this time. Sigler said textbooks have been stolen from both the Agriculture Building and Rehn Hall.


“We had an incident at the Agriculture Building, and we’ve had one that we know of at Rehn,” he said.

He said some books were recovered outside Rehn Hall after it had been burglarized, and he said a groundsworker found books stolen from the Agriculture Building in Thompson Woods.

Sigler said it would be speculative to suggest the incidents occurred from a repeat offender but said the incidences did bear some resemblance to one another and are under investigation.

“There are some similarities that we’re investigating,” he said.
