Police at the University of Central Arkansas are investigating a break-in at the school — this time at the mathematics and technology building where someone stole books and riffled through desks Thursday night or early Friday morning.
At least 12 books, worth about $717, were stolen from Eric Lynn Jones, according to a police incident report at 5:55 p.m. Friday night.
"Why someone would steal math books, I don't know," said Jones, a graduate student who reported the theft Friday.
Jones said when he returned to his office Friday morning, his desk drawers were open, some papers were thrown on the floor and trash that did not belong to him was in his waste basket. Jones said a couple of other people in the building have noticed missing items.
