Police continue to investigate the theft of personal property and money from the Iowa Hawkeyes’ locker room during the game against the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday night. They have turned to the public to see if anyone can give them more information.

On Monday, police reported that multiple Hawkeyes players reported their cell phones stolen, along with a total of $50 in cash. According to a report from KCCI, The locker rooms were guarded that night and didn’t allow entry to anyone without proper credentials, so assumedly somebody on or involved with the security staff did the crime.

ISU Police has urged that anyone with more information should call 515-294-4428. If the theft is never resolved, then Iowa State will reimburse everyone that was affected in the crime.

Obviously, this puts the entire Iowa State community under a bad light. No matter what the reason was for the person or group involved that did this, it’s incredibly stupid. Taking cell phones and cash shouldn’t be taken lightly, and everyone knows how much of a pain it is to reconfigure everything when losing or breaking a cell phone.
