    Police Beat

    Someone damaged a car and stole an iPod from it at Kappa Alpha fraternity house, 906 E. First St., between 1:30 and 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

    An officer arrived at the building and contacted the car’s owner. The owner had parked the car in the back lot at 1:30 a.m. and when he returned the convertible top had been cut.

    The passenger door was open, and a piece of wood was inside the vehicle.

    The student said the car has an alarm, but it appeared the wires to the alarm had been cut. It looked like the perpetrators cut the convertible top and used the wood to push the lock open from the inside, gaining entry.

    The officer was unable to lift fingerprints from the vehicle.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.
