Student let 4 burglars into UGA dormitory

By The Associated Press
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Police say four men suspected of burglarizing a dormitory at the University of Georgia got into the building when a student held a door open for them.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports UGA police were called to Busbee Hall on the Athens campus early Sunday. Police say a student got into a fight with some of the suspects after finding them stealing items from his dorm. The burglars fled and escaped.

Police say surveillance video shows four men suspected in the burglary were let into the residence hall by a student holding the door, which otherwise would have been locked to non-residents.

A witness told police one of the burglars may have had a gun in his waistband, but nobody was threatened with a weapon at the dorm.
