Last week march 31st, as an april fools prank, my friends and i-3 of us- stole a rug from the university center campus at UW River Falls and planned on moving it to a different location. A week later we got called in by university police charging us with a misdemeanor theft and fining all three of us 421 dollars. They said the worth of the rug was $850, which we don't believe. They also told us that because the item wasn't over $1000 that the charge would not go on our records. We returned the item back to its original location in perfect condition. We also do not see how such a simple college prank can be punished so harshly. So the question stands, will this charge be on our records?
