Pepperdine University campus police are investigating the theft of 350 copies of the student newspaper at a cost of $1,460, which is the second time the paper has been stolen, according to reports.
The Oct. 25 issue of newspapers went missing over a weekend, according to the Pepperdine Graphic.
Pepperdine President Andrew K. Benton said in a statement to the newspaper that he was disappointed by the disappearance of the papers.
“When an individual is allowed to control the news, something is lost and the reputation of a community is damaged,” Benton said.
During both thefts, the student newspaper had stories about drunken driving involving fraternity and sorority members, Graphic Executive Editor Kayla Ferguson said.
