Two weeks ago, my daughter, a freshman at the University of Cincinnati, had her wallet stolen while she was participating in an intramural basketball game.
It contained her student ID, a bank debit card, driver's license and room keys. She reported it to the campus police, and then to her bank to cancel the debit card. At that time, she found out that the debit card had been used at a gas station just off campus.
Two days later, the wallet was returned, minus the debit card and student ID card. The student ID card can also be used as a debit card at on-campus and some selected off campus locations. When she checked the balance on her student ID card, she found that it had been used at an off campus pizzeria, where they had placed an order that totalled $45.00, and then had it delivered to their dorm.
Police also checked the video system at the gas station. They had obligingly come inside to make a purchase, and stood directly in front of one of the in-store surveillance cameras.
Their initial court appearance is pending.
