Cambridge police raided the Owl Club early yesterday morning, confiscating Christmas trees, lights, and a figurine of Jesus-which members told police they had stolen.
Lt. Thomas Egan of the Cambridge police said four patrolmen approached a group of Owl Club members who were "acting suspiciously" outside the club at 1 a.m. Monday. The boys ran but stopped when the policemen pursued them, Egan said. One of them, he said, had the Jesus figurine hidden under his coat. The trees and lights were found inside the door of the club. Egan said the boys admitted having stolen the materials.
Police are still trying to find out where the articles were stolen from. Egan said the boys told police they thought the decorations had come from the Wellesley-Newton area, but could not remember exactly where they had gotten them. A Jesus figurine is missing from the Cambridge Common, Egan said.
The entire matter was referred to Harvard. The president of the Owl Club, Gordon Grant III '70, refused to comment on the incident.
