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.

  4. im assuming that the “she had lose the key” error is not Vox’s – (in quotes from another email).

  5. No, the Voice left real journalism and such antiquated notions as editing and fact-checking behind long ago. And Hunter Kaplan is a writer for the Voice, so of course he is going to blame the mistake on someone else. Even if there was an error in the original e-mail, Chris should have corrected it with brackets.
