Man Steals Auxiliary Police Jacket, Posts On Campus Story

Update 4:09 p.m.: A friend of the man who took the jacket contacted Onward State via Twitter and indicated he is returning the jacket to the Auxiliary Police.

Original Story: Someone stole a jacket from a Penn State Auxiliary Police officer at yesterday’s Blue-White Game, according to Nathan Pearlman on Facebook.

While this alone is questionable, photos of the alleged thief were then posted on the Snapchat ‘Weekend at College’ Penn State story with the caption “Steals police jacket. Instantly becomes a cop.”

Did we mention the guy’s face is shown in the Snapchat? This seems like the easiest way to get caught.

Pearlman asks anyone with information about the man who reportedly stole the jacket to contact University Police at 814-863-1111.

The Facebook post has since been removed, but you can see the original post below:
