At 6 p.m. Friday October 18th Anchita Sanan was hanging out in the I-Lounge on the second floor of University Center when she took off her ring and placed it on the table. Or, at least, she thought she did.
It wasn’t until later that evening that she noticed it was missing. Or, at least, she thought it was.
According to the police report, “Sanam described the ring as gold with rubies and diamonds. She stated that there is a ruby band of three stones and then one of diamonds and it continues this pattern approximately 3 times.” It is valued at $600.
Sanam immediately contacted her friend Robert Molina who went to campus the next morning to scour the area, and even asked the cleaning lady if she had seen the ring. Sanam went digging through the campus lost and found. She cleaned her room, car, and book bag. The ring was nowhere to be found.
After a harrowing five-day search, on Wednesday October 23, Sanam contacted UMPD. She had located the missing ring. It was inside her bedroom at her house. “There was no theft that occurred, Sanan did not leave her ring on the table at the University Center. There was no unlawful activity and therefore this case is unfounded,” the police report states.
Two UMPD detectives worked on the case, which is two more than this girl had.
