UALR Law Student Pleads for Return of Stolen Briefcase

Student says he understands why thieves stole his laptop, but the pages of handwritten notes are useless to anyone else.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A second-year law student at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock (UALR) is desperate to find the notes a thief stole from the briefcase in his vehicle.

"I came out to my truck and just opened my door, and here in the back it was gone," says Michael Hylden.

Hylden says he understands why thieves stole his laptop, but that the pages and pages of handwritten notes are useless to anyone else.

Despite fellow students offering their own notes, Hylden says he's worried passing this semester's courses might not happen without the notes he spent hundreds of hours making.

He says there will be no questions asked if they're returned.

"Leave it right on the ground there, I'll find it in the morning," Hylden says. "If there's a little dew on it, that's fine. Drop it at the law school, it's a public building, people go in and out of it with folders all the time, no one will think anything on it."

Hylden says he was trying to get a head start on studying before his newborn son arrived, but his wife went into labor Monday afternoon.
