University Press Snatcher Nabbed by FAU Police

Florida Atlantic University police have arrested a philosophy graduate student in connection with the recent theft and trashing of The University Press. According to a UP report, Yona Rabinowitz, 25, has been charged with grand theft, trespassing, and resisting arrest.  Bail has been set at $3,000.

FAU police say one other suspect remains at large in the still-open investigation.  As I previously posted, earlier this month, roughly 2,000 copies of a UP issue were removed from their newsstand bins across campus and dumped in the garbage.

Immediately after the theft, UP editor in chief Karla Bowsher said she suspected a tie-in with the issue’s content, a prediction that appears spot-on.  As she wrote me at the time, “We suspect- but have no evidence that- the (apparent) thefts are tied to the issue’s cover story.  We broke the news before any other outlet about a lawsuit against the dean of our College of Arts and Letters and then about the philosophy department chair . . . resigning following our coverage of the lawsuit.”
