From The College Fix:

Two weeks after a September report of a cellphone stolen from a university locker, officers at the flagship campus traced it electronically to the classroom of Prof. Erik McDuffie, according to the initial and supplemental police reports.

The two responding officers initially planned to wait outside the room for McDuffie’s lecture to dismiss, but the professor let them in because they were already distracting his class of 37, The News-Gazette reported.

Two black male students raised their hands when Officer Chuck Hoskins “asked aloud, ‘Does anyone in here have a gray, I-Phone 6 Plus in this room,’” Hoskins said in a report filed later that day, which valued the phone at $850.
