MIddlebury Police Log: Student helps lead police to stolen laptop

MIDDLEBURY — A Middlebury College student on Jan. 31 provided a valuable assist to state and local authorities who were able to find his property and other items allegedly stolen from campus.
Middlebury police received a report that a MacBook laptop computer had been stolen from a college student. The student was able to trace his stolen device to a North Ferrisburgh address, according to police.
