A man employed as resident director of dorms at Paine College returned to his job Sunday to find he’d been terminated and his belongings, including two $13,000 Panerai wristwatches, had been stolen, he told police.

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Christopher Blue arrived at his Hollis Hall dorm room to gather his belongings and found the locks had been changed and his belongings removed.

An employee, Duane Vanloo, told law enforcement that Paine Vice President of Student Affairs Tina Cardenas had asked him to place Blue’s belongings outside the dorm.

Blue told deputies he does wish to prosecute.

I didn't know they made watches that expensive. Mine are usually around $20. They keep good time.

looks like ol'Paine will be

looks like ol'Paine will be paying this guy $26k. if they remove the property, they are responsible for it. now of course he will have to prove he had the watches to begin with. that could be a problem.

Happy and Dixie: According to

Happy and Dixie: According to the last line in the article, the man does wish to prosecute ["Blue told deputies he does wish to prosecute']; nowhere in the article does it say otherwise. As for placing his personal belongings outside in an unprotected area makes the school liable for his losses so they should not cry foul when ordered to pay up. It matters not that he was fired; if the school officials wanted his belongings removed from the premises, they had 2 alternatives: (1) leave them in the room so he could retrieve them, or (2) remove the belongings to the administrative storage room where they would have been protected from theft. Pay up, Paine College, you owe the guy so quit your whining.

Have they filled his job yet?

Have they filled his job yet? If not, I want it! My Timex has "quit ticken" and I would like to be able to afford just ONE $13,000 dollar watch. Paine must be rolling in dough these days.
