Two 19-year-old Kansas University students were arrested Saturday morning suspected of stealing four folding chairs from Memorial Stadium, said Maj. Chris Keary, assistant KU police chief.
Keary said police received a report from a security officer early Saturday about someone carrying folding chairs with foam cushions near Allen Fieldhouse. Police determined the chairs were taken from the stadium and arrested the two suspects on burglary and other charges. The chairs were valued at $100 each.
Both men posted bond of about $3,000 each over the weekend and were given notice to appear in court April 27. Prosecutors before then will likely decide about filing formal charges. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged.
