Another year, another laptop theft.
According to an email sent to the University community early this morning by the Department of Public Safety, an unidentified suspect stole a laptop from an “uninhabited” room in Harbin Hall. According to the email, a suspicious person was seen in the building, but canvassing of the area by both DPS and Metro Police failed apprehend or identify him. The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 19 and 21, of thin build, and about 5’8″ to 5’10″. He was seen wearing “a navy blue ball cap with a red bill, a black hooded jacket, blue jeans rolled at the cuffs, and black boots.”
The report does not specify whether the door to the room was locked, but it does include that “there were no signs of forced entry.” Anyone with information regarding this incident is should call DPS at (202) 687-4343.
