LSUPD: Ex-frat member, accomplice urinate on Sigma Chi house, steal chair
BATON ROUGE - The LSU Police Department says they arrested two men after they were caught on surveillance camera urinating on a door of the Sigma Chi fraternity house before stealing a chair.
20-year-old Alexander McCollam and 21-year-old Logan McCaughey were booked on charges of simple burglary and criminal mischief.
LSU PD said they were contacted by the house mother of the Sigma Chi house on the university’s campus after she said she’d discovered the gate on the western side of the house appeared to have been tampered with. She said she reviewed surveillance footage to observe two men pull up at the house in a truck pulling a boat trailer.
Once they’d exited the vehicle, the men were caught on camera as they began urinating on the back door. The suspects could then be seen forcing their way through the wooden gate that was closed and secured with a chain. At around 12:56 a.m., they were seen removing a white-and-gray Lifetime brand chair valued at about $25 from the property before fleeing the scene.
The house mother was also able to identify McCaughey as a former member of the fraternity.
When LSU Police contacted McCaughey, he initially said he would come by the station for questioning by officers, but later refused through his father. McGauhey’s father would later meet officers at the LSUPD with the stolen chair in his possession to return it.
Last Thursday, McCaughey met with LSU Police, identifying Alexander McCollom as the other suspect and admitted to going to the Sigma Chi house on the night in question.
