Administrators at Brigham Young University-Idaho in Rexburg say they're afraid that a recent pair of arrests of students will generate bad press for the Latter Day Saints satellite campus. Let's realize their fears, shall we?
A pair of Mormon students, one a returned missionary, the other preparing to depart, have been arrested and charged with stealing credit cards in order to buy a whole lot of flipping neat crap like iPods, laptop computers and a paintball gun that cost one-fetching-thousand dollars!
Brothers Blaine Goodman, 18, and Tyler Goodman, 22, allegedly broke into cars to get the credit cards, ordered the items over the Internet and had them delivered to a vacant house in Rexburg. Police caught them by leaving a fake package at the house and waiting for the brothers to pick it up.
Last month, another BYU-Idaho student, 19-year-old Courtney Eagleston (a boy), was arrested twice on weapons and drugs charges. On July 7, police collared him for being in possession of 15 grams of cocaine and 21 guns that had been stolen from a pawn shop. A day after Eagleston was released on July 26, police arrested him again for breaking into the same pawn shop and stealing another 42 guns.
