Theft Under $5000
Location:  Residence
Reported:  Sunday, February 24, 2013 @ 12:25 am
SCS Officers responded to Residence to a report of a Resident student’s keys taken from his room door.  He was in his room at the time, and had left his keys in the lock.  A male resident living on the same floor is suspect in this theft and will be dealt with by S.C.S. once located. When SCS Officers walked through the Residence to go and speak with the complainant, they observed several marks of graffiti in black magic marker written in the halls, doorways, and elevator.  The graffiti was vulgar in nature and several of the incidents had the words in reference to the student whom had his keys stolen from his door.   CCTV video footage was reviewed and captured the male(s) responsible for the graffiti.  A locksmith was called in to change the lock on the door as the complainant was fearful for his safety and had barricaded himself in his room with furniture.  Custodial staff was called to clean the graffiti after photos were taken. This incident is still under investigation and will be dealt with by S.C.S.
