Arrests Made in Purdue Robberies and Laptop Thefts


Lafayette police have arrested five teenagers in connection with three robberies on the Purdue campus. Four were arrested Wednesday and a fifth was arrested Thursday after an investigation found two stolen laptops at a Lafayette pawn shop.

The teens are accused of attacking people from behind and stealing items. One person suffered minor injuries.

Three of the teens face several felony counts. Investigators say surveillance video helped with the investigation.

They expect to make more arrests in the case.
