UCF Police have arrested a man on campus after a student recognized him from his picture posted on campus.
Steven Marshall, 40, was arrested in the Health and Public Affairs building after a squad of officers had surrounded the building, according to UCF Public Information Officer Sgt. Troy Williamson.
Marshall was arrested by UCF Police earlier this year in connection with a string of vending machine break-ins on UCF's main campus.
Marshall was recognized by a student who had seen a picture of the repeat offender posted in an elevator in Tower I and called police.
Charges are pending.
"He's getting ready to go on trial [for his previous offenses]…and here he is again doing the same thing back at UCF," Williamson said. "He doesn't need to be out on the streets again."
Williamson commended the student who made the call and acknowledged how important it is that students help watch for individuals with warrants out for their arrest.
"We can't do it without the 60,000 pairs of eyes," Williamson said.
