Dorm room in New South burglarized by unknown suspect
On Tuesday morning, a room on the first floor of New South was burglarized after a resident left her door unlocked, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. When the student returned to her room, she realized that her laptop, jewelry, and some cash were stolen.
“The complainant stated that she had [lost] the key to her dorm room and left her room door ajar so that she could re-enter without a key,” MPD Lieutenant Antonio Charland wrote in an e-mail.
In an e-mail to Vox, DPS Director Joseph Smith confirmed that the burglary occurred in New South.
The theft calls to mind the flurry of burglaries that plagued the Southwest Quad last July, as the campus typically experiences a lull of crime during the summer.
The suspect is still at large.
