$60,000 worth of equipment stolen from Denison University

GRANVILLE (Ben Garbarek) -- Granville Police say roughly $60,000 worth of computer equipment was stolen from Denison University.

The theft happened either late July 19 or early July 20 in the Mitchell Center.  Staff members on campus said the computers belonged to coaches and other staff within the athletic department.

Surveillance video shows a man pushes a gray cart usually used for towels, but police say it's full of computers.

"He appeared fairly casual and taking his time," said Sgt. Dave Dudgeon of the Granville Police Department. 

Police are not sure how the man got inside.  They said there were other people inside the building at the time.

Denison students are off for summer break, but police said there are a lot of athletic camps on campus during the summer.  That usually means many new faces walking around.

"There's quite a lot of turnover," Dudgeon said.  "(Camp goers) may only be there for a week or two and then another set of faces come, so you'd expect a lot of unfamiliar faces in the summer."

Denison staff members said the thief left desk drawers open as he went office to office.  They said the thief even took spare change, but left the pennies.
