A Georgetown employee contacted the Department of Public Safety at approximately 3:30 p.m. today to report a stolen backpack. The backpack, along with the laptop it held, was taken from an unlocked office in the Reiss Science Building. The public safety alert states the employee left the office at around 10:30 this morning and returned five hours later to find the laptop missing.
Today’s theft marks the second laptop theft in Reiss this month, with the other occurring less than two weeks ago. With both incidents, DPS reports that there were no signs of forced entry or physical injury. The Metropolitan Police Department responded to today’s theft and has also taken over investigation of the May 11 burglary.
The announcement requests that students call DPS at 202-687-4343 if they noticed any suspects before or after this, or any other incident.
