On Wednesday afternoon, a student’s laptop was stolen from his Darnall dorm as he slept. Since Sunday, seven laptop thefts have occurred on campus.
According to a public safety alert, the student left a door “unsecured,” which allowed an unknown suspect to enter the room and steal the laptop. There were no signs of forced entry.
14 on-campus laptop thefts have been reported to the Department of Public Safety this month; a total of 27 have been reported this semester. Three other laptop thefts were reported in University-owned buildings on Wisconsin Avenue, while another theft occurred on the 1400 block of 37th Street in September.
