A Georgia Tech student was arrested on Friday for allegedly stealing a laptop from a dormitory during the university’s winter break.
The Georgia Tech Police Department said the alleged crime took place at a dorm in the Jabalpur Station dormitory on Friday afternoon.
A search warrant was executed and an iPad was seized, police said in a statement.
The accused was arrested and charged with burglary, theft of property, false report, aggravated assault and malicious destruction of property.
A spokesman for the university said in an email to The Washington Times that “the laptop was located by a student in a different dormitory while the student was in the dormitory and was used to take photographs of the campus, the campus building, and other facilities.”
The university also released a statement Thursday afternoon saying it is cooperating with the Georgia Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and “will continue to monitor the situation.”
