• Update on 'stolen backpacks' case

    The Student Life office sent an email on Monday with an update about the backpacks that were stolen. Below is an excerpt: “Newberg Police have a warrant out for the arrest of a 17-year-old male who is suspected of stealing backpacks on the Newberg campus. He is not a George Fox student and previously has been issued a no trespass order for campus by police. He rides a gold bike and usually wears a Oakland Raiders ball cap and a zip-front jacket that is grey on the lower half.” On Sept. 23, five students’ backpacks were stolen from Brougher Hall and Bauman auditorium. Many of the items were found on and around campus on the same day by Security Services, Newberg-Dundee Police Department and community members. If you have seen the suspect or have any information about this suspect, call Newberg Police dispatch (503-538-8321 or 911) or GFU Security Services (503-554-2090) immediately. This is an ongoing story and will be updated as soon as we get more information.
