WT student arrested

A West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) student has been arrested after the university said he took another student's car.

Around 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 15, the University Police Department received a report from a WTAMU student indicating her 2009 Chevrolet car was missing.

The car was parked in the parking lot (Zone 13) west of the Virgil Henson Activities Center.

After further investigation, it was determined a suspect had taken her vehicle key and fob from the gym where she had left them while working out.

The suspect was identified and the vehicle was recovered and returned.

Martin Dempster, a WT student and resident of Jarrett Hall, was arrested and booked into the Randall County Jail for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, a State Jail Felony.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

A requirement of this law is timely notification to the campus community of certain crimes in a manner that will aid in the prevention of similar crimes.
