A man wanted for questioning in thefts at three different universities was arrested Monday in Denver, according to University of Colorado officials.

Raymond Webster Hamilton, 26, of Denver, was arrested Monday by parole officers on suspicion of providing false information to a pawn broker for allegedly selling an iPad stolen from the CU-Boulder Visual Arts Complex in July. He also was booked on three fugitive holds and a parole violation.

In addition to the iPad theft, Hamilton -- who is not a student -- is wanted for questioning in a rash of thefts of wallets, purses and laptops from offices and common areas at three universities, including in connection with more than a dozen cases at CU-Boulder between Oct. 2 and 20.

Police believe also he is involved in thefts at the Colorado School of Mines on Oct. 19 and at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.

Hamilton declined to speak to police upon his arrest and is currently being held at the Denver County Downtown Detention Center without bond.

"We thank the media for their assistance in publicizing these cases, and we thank the public for their tips that led to this arrest," CU-Boulder police spokesman Ryan Huff said in a statement. "At the same time, we remind the campus community that they need to stay vigilant in protecting their valuable items."
