A computer was checked out of Pattee Library last month and hasn’t been returned. Computers get checked out all the time, as Penn State students turn over an identification card just like they would for a book.

Penn State police say the problem this time was that the card in question was stolen.

According to police, the computer was checked out at 2:35 p.m. Nov. 17 at Pattee Library. More than three weeks later, the laptop is still missing.

Police have released still images of surveillance video taken of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to contact university police at 863-1111 or Centre County Crime Stoppers at tip@centrecountycrimestoppers.org. Information leading to an arrest could mean a reward of up to $1,000 from Centre County Crime Stoppers.
