Public Safety Alert: Burglary in McCarthy Hall

Apparently, the criminal that hides in the Southwest Quad, waits for students to leave their doors unlocked, and robs them of their valuables has struck again. According to a Public Safety Announcement sent to the University community today, September 26, a student living in McCarthy Hall reported that sometime between 11:30 p.m. on the evening of Saturday, September 24, and 1:00 p.m. the following afternoon, someone entered his unlocked room and stole his wallet and laptop from off his desk. The student reportedly left his door unlocked while sleeping, and was not awoken by any intruder.

This is the fourth incident of laptop theft in the month of September, with the other three occurring in previous weeks in Harbin and LXR.

  1. I wish I slept as deeply, or as long, as this guy. Besides when I’m supposed to be learning the intricacies of the modified Princeton offense from Not JTIII.

  2. Why do people keep leaving their doors unlocked when we know there are thefts on campus all the time? It seems like a pretty easy issue to avoid…

  3. Maybe the person was sick enough that locking his door was a secondary objective to lying down. It does happen, and it seems awfully likely in this case, since he went to bed before midnight and woke up after noon.
