A U. of I. student reported that her backpack and laptop computer had been stolen around 12:50 p.m. Tuesday at the Illini Union, 1401 W. Green St., Urbana. The items, which have a total estimated value of $850, were left unattended for a few minutes in a public lobby.
Cameron M. Land, 24, of Urbana, was arrested at 1:40 p.m. Saturday in the 500 block of South Neil Street, Champaign, for driving under the influence of drugs, driving with a suspended license, unlawful use of weapons, possession of a stolen firearm and resisting a police officer. Land’s vehicle initially was stopped because a police officer recognized him and was aware that his license had been suspended. Land attempted to run after being approached by police officers but was restrained after a brief struggle, during which an officer’s finger was broken. Police found a stolen loaded handgun in the vehicle.
