WASHINGTON – Georgetown’s Healy Tower’s clock has its hands back.
The university replaced them more than a week after they disappeared, The Hoya reports.
The university continues to investigate the theft of the hands, which may have been pilfered as part of a college prank.
The thieves Thursday posted a ransom note on CollegeCraig.
Georgetown spokeswoman Rachel Pugh says the university put a pair of spare hands on the clock’s face, but not before repairing about $9,000 worth of damage done to the clock and surrounding area.
