Examination of video tape of the hallways to the locker room at Minneapolis Community and Technical College provided no leads to the possible culprit(s) in the theft of belonging from members of the Ridgewater College basketball team on Wednesday.

MCTC Safety and Security chief Curt Schmidt told the Tribune today that "there is a lot of congestion in the hallway, so many coming and going."

Of course, there are no cameras in the locker rooms, he added. The visiting men's teams use the same locker room _ at separate times _ as the Maverick women's team. Th same doubling up has to be used at Ridgewater College, also.

Seven members of the men's team lost articles or cash. Schmidt said 3 iPods, an MP3 player and $410 in cash were reported missing. The losses were discovered when the players returned to the locker room after losing an MCCC Southern Division game to the Mavericks.

Schmidt said security procedures are being reviewed to prevent a re-occurance. The Minneapolis police are also investigating.
