Lambuth student arrested on theft charges

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Jackson have arrested a student in a series of dorm room thefts at Lambuth University.

Whitney King, who is 19, is charged with two counts of property theft, according to The Jackson Sun.

Electronic devices have been reported missing over the past few weeks from several rooms at the private university.

A police news release said Lambuth security officers got a tip that stolen goods were in King's car and a search of the car located them.

Police say they expect to file additional charges and say other suspects could be involved.

King was released on $10,000 bond. No phone number could be found for her in Jackson.
