Auto Burglaries on Campus

A message from the Sheriff's Office:

"There has been a recent increase in auto burglaries and auto thefts in the upper campus parking areas. Several of the victim vehicles have been older model Hondas. There exists the possibility that the suspect(s) are targeting Hondas due to their ability to access older model Hondas. As usual, and regardless of what model vehicle you drive, we would ask that you please do not store valuables (lap tops, smart phones, etc) within your vehicle.

Please also report any suspicious persons on campus to the Sheriff’s Office.

We are actively investigating these crimes in hopes of identifying the suspect(s). Feel free to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 479-6314 with any questions or information."
