Northwestern University Police say they’ve recovered most of the 4,500 COVID-19 test kits that were stolen from a storage room at the Foster-Walker residence hall complex on campus on Monday.

In a campus crime alert, the school says the test kits were recovered from students who are suspects in the theft and that NUPD is continuing to investigate the incident.
