UC Lab Theft

A former UC student was arrested for stealing materials from the University's chemistry department.

Police believe it was taken for illegal drug activity.

The woman apparently used an old student id to gain access.

Police say she broke into the lab and walked off with a bunch of potentionally dangerous chemicals.

A professor called police just before 6 last night, when he saw the woman carring out chemicals and lab equipment.

University police tracked her down on woodside place and found containers of chemicals inside her car.

Hazmat was called in and collected the chemicals for testing.

Police said at first they thought it was a rolling meth lab.

Authorities do believe she wanted the chemicals and equipment for drug use.

The woman is charged with breaking and entering plus theft.

She is set to appear in court this morning.
