AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

An investigation is underway after more than 800 student newspapers were taken from racks at Auburn University Thursday morning.

The Auburn Plainsman hit racks at 8 a.m. Thursday and within two hours the racks at the student center were empty, according to a statement from Plainsman Managing Editor Maddie Yerant.

Yerant said they also discovered newspapers missing from other buildings on campus.

The newspaper reported the thefts to the Auburn Police Division and public safety. They will be reviewing video and other evidence.

The newspaper is free to Auburn students, faculty, staff and the community, but the newspaper says it has weekly printing and delivery costs as well as expenses for special section inserts and staff salaries.

"Any theft of papers in an attempt to censor content will be followed up by any means necessary, including criminal prosecution, civil action for restitution of lost funds and campus disciplinary action," Yerant said the in the state.

The newspaper is asking the people who are responsible to "come forward and do the right thing."
