Student reports stolen marijuana:
Ryan Grinnell, a 29-year-old KU student, reported to Lawrence police that a person stole $200 in marijuana around 9:20 p.m. Sept. 28 from the 2000 block of Heatherwood Drive, said Sgt. Dan Ward of the Lawrence Police Department.
Also that someone stole the gun he used to commit a murder, and the condom he kept from a rape.

Are there any statistics on how common this is? I've heard of this before, which means it's not rare.

Update: On re-reading this, I realize there's some ghost of a chance there could be confusion about the fact that I was joking about the murder and the rape. To my knowledge, Mr. Grinnell's committed neither crime, and I'd hate someone Googling his name to get the wrong idea.
