Details of the incident : A theft occurred at the Jefferson College TV studio (JCTV). The back door that connects the studio to a parking lot was left unlocked over the weekend. I am not sure exactly what happened, but I suspect it was inadvertently left slightly open and unlocked by an employee borrowing equipment from the studio on Friday, December 7. This person was authorized to be there. Then, on Saturday, December 8, there was a community event on campus. A few attendees are accused of leaving that event and stealing items from various buildings. The suspects entered the studio through the back door (as seen on outdoor surveillance video ). There is no surveillance inside the studio, unfortunately, but the equipment was gone the following week, after the suspects had entered the studio. Employees did not notice the three sets of cameras were missing until a few days later, as these cameras were not in use at the time. A police report was made immediately after we noticed.
