Two cases of laundry theft from CMU residence halls


Laundry was stolen from two different residence hall laundry rooms this week, according to the Central Michigan University Police Department.

A Kesseler Hall resident started a load of laundry around 11:30 a.m. on April 9. When they came back at 4:30 p.m. that same day, the washer was empty. The load of laundry consisted of mostly blankets and bed sheets estimated to be valued around $70. 

A suspect was identified and admitted to stealing the laundry. The case was turned over to the Isabella County Prosecutor's Office, said CMUPD Lt. Michael Sienkiewicz.

In the other case, a Barnes Hall resident started a load of laundry on April 10 and did not go back to the washer until April 11. When they returned, an estimated $200 worth of laundry was missing from the washer.

The CMUPD has talked to a number of people that were in the area but has not yet identified a suspect, Sienkiewicz said. He also said both cases are most likely unrelated.
