• Andrew J.L. Jacobson, 19, paid $361 for receiving stolen property at Rodli.
A neon Blimpie sign was reported missing Sept. 29, and a witness called the River Falls Police Department Oct. 10 after seeing a group of students he recognized as football players carrying the sign Sept. 29.
According to reports, Jacobson admitted to finding the Blimpie sign outside Rodli, which he then picked up. He said he intended to bring it to Hathorn Hall to show his friends, but decided not to keep it and returned it to where he had originally found it.
Jacobson, however, was seen riding his bike with the sign, according to a witness statement.
The sign is valued at $620.68.
