AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- A student at Augusta University has been arrested and charged after police say she intended to sell university property.

Officers say Kailyn Jackson, 18, listed the following as up for sale on the OfferUp website: a purple chair, two blue Fatboy bean bags, four black outdoor chairs, a black patio table, a grey chair with a black end table, two rolling chairs, and two purple Fatboy bean bags.

Jackson listed her cell phone number and her pickup address for the chairs at the Oak Hall dormitory on campus.
