Student ID thieves rack up nearly $80 in snacks

Three University of Memphis students, using a stolen student ID card, bought snacks totaling $76.25 before they were arrested. They’ve been charged with fraudulent use of a debit card.

University police said the campus ID had been used 60 times at vending machines around campus before the three were finally caught.

The victim, Matthew O’Malley, told university police that his student ID card was stolen from a locker at the school’s recreation center.
