A case of theft in a University of Oklahoma residence hall was blown wide open with the assistance of the university’s OneCard access logs and surveillance footage.
As reported by The Dallas News, campus police used student ID swipe card logs and surveillance footage to charge Oklahoma football player Will Sunderland with felony second-degree burglary. Sunderland was caught stealing two video game systems from another athlete’s dorm room.
According to campus officials, security cameras captured Sunderland entering the residence hall, and then confirmed his entry by matching with OneCard swipe logs. He then disappears from video for eight minutes before being seen again carrying a large, unidentified object. Outdoor surveillance footage then captured images of a large bag being loaded into the student’s car.

Sunderland was also charged with misdemeanor possession of stolen property in neighboring Oklahoma County after a local pawn shop found that two XBOX One and PlayStation 4 gaming systems that the student had sold them in March were, in fact, stolen. The student was charged with grand larceny and concealing stolen property, as well as felony burglary — offenses that in Oklahoma can carry a minimum prison sentence of two years.
