A Wayne State University fraternity has been suspended following several pledge-related thefts

Lincoln Park police arrested three men after seeing someone jump out of a car and appear to steal something from a business.

The men told police they had stolen the items as part of a pledge to join the Epsilon Beta chapter of Theta Tau.

Wayne State announced the suspension after learning of the arrests.
