The University Center–consisting of Mary Graydon Center and Butler Pavilion–apparently has a theft problem. On October 7th AWOL received an email from Scott Jones, University Center Director of Operations, addressed to “Student Organization Leaders.” Jones detailed a smorgasbord of furniture stolen during “the past few weeks.” From the email:

10 Market Place Bar Stools total replacement cost is $3,475
1 Tavern Booth seat total replacement cost is $941.30
30 Butler Board Room Chairs total replacement cost is $2,400

1 Tavern high table total replacement cost is $495

It’s obviously unclear whether this is a series of isolated furniture-napping incidents, or the work of a single dedicated thief who just really needs some new chairs for their boardroom and doesn’t want to pay $80 a pop. But regardless, the University Center wants its furniture back! More from Jones:

The University Center is asking for your assistance in the return of these items. If the individuals responsible wish to return the items, the University Center will accept these items returned by October 18, 2010 with no questions asked.
