Hamburgling Fraudster Still at Large in State College

On Nov. 1, a man reported his sweatshirt and wallet stolen from Beta Sigma Beta fraternity. An event that, while tragic, is relatively commonplace in the world of parties. Getting new cards and a new ID is always a pain in the ass, plus your cash is almost assuredly gone, even if the wallet is turned in.

Unfortunately for the victim of this awful crime, petty theft became credit card fraud.

Upon cancelling his cards, the victim discovered a charge to the McDonald’s on College Avenue. This was not simply a drunken mistake, however: the crime occurred around 8:30 a.m., with Mickey D’s famous breakfast in full swing. The amount purchased was not immediately available, but the suspect was picked up on McDonald’s security cameras.

The suspect is described as a “college-aged, white female,” who was wearing a “white jacket and had long, brown hair,” which should help narrow the list of suspects down significantly.

These circumstances beg the question: is a McGriddle worth all that heartache for the victim? This reporter says no.

If you know anyone who fits that description and showed up to your 9:15 a.m. class with an order of hotcakes and those weird stringy scrambled eggs, or if you have any information at all, please contact State College Police at 814-234-7150 or submit an anonymous tip through their website.
