Over 2,000 copies of the Los Angeles Loyolan were removed from newsstands on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. 

The Los Angeles Loyolan filed a report with Public Safety after more than 2,000 newspapers went missing from 22 of the 25 newsstands on campus. 

According to Veronica Manz, the administrative coordinator of Student Media who oversees all newspaper distribution, 3,500 newspapers were placed in the newsstands on campus on the morning of April 10. As of 4:35 p.m. on April 10, every newsstand on campus except for three had all their Loyolan newspapers missing. 

Editor-in-Chief Jacob Cornblatt and Director of Student Media Tom Nelson filed the report at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.  

"We're trying to determine if it's an individual or a group who was upset with the issue, and whether that would motivate them to steal or destroy the paper," said Nelson.

According to the Loyolan's editorial policy, which appears in the Opinion section of the newspaper each week, "The first copy [of the newspaper] is free of charge. Additional copies are $1 each."

Additionally, California law prohibits the taking of "more than 25 newspapers," as "free newspapers provide a key source of information to the public."

The Loyolan has previously dealt with newspapers theft in March 2005 following a controversial story was published on sorority Alpha Phi's president and vice president.

In April 2008, Loyolan newspapers also went missing, many of which were later found in recycling bins.
