Yesterday, Georgia Southern University Public Safety issued a campus alert informing students, faculty and staff about various thefts at the RAC the past week.

Public Safety advised students to take belongings they absolutely need and keep those belongings with them or in a locker while at the RAC. Also, students and staff are advised to not leave their belongings alone for any length of time.

GSU also advised students to take precautionary measures against thefts by registering personal items by visiting ReportIt, an online item registration website.

Public Safety officers arrested Javontis Dashawn Powell on Tuesday for a theft committed at the RAC on Aug. 24
