The University Police Department (UPD) responded to numerous incidents in January, occurring on and off campus, that were then listed in The Student Right to Know Daily Incident Log.
These incidents, part of a broader 60-day report, provides the campus community with a list summarizing all crimes.
Burglary was reported once when an unknown subject comitted forcible entry into the Vasche Library.
An open-investigation is being conducted on the suspect, who entered the library and allegedly stole from three departments: OIT, Social Work and the Testing Center.
“The impact on OIT included the loss of several computers that were being prepared for use by other offices, and damage to furniture and doors,” said Dave Tonelli, the Associate Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs.
“OIT will incur a cost to repair the furniture and replace the computers.”
Tonelli noted the crime’s impact on the student body, stating that the personal information of 305 students could have possibly been taken.
“The university does not know whether the student data was compromised, but followed established notification protocol and offered one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to the students involved,” Tonelli said.
Sergeant Andy Roy of UPD was not able to give a case status on the suspect who committed the crimes as the investigation is still open and any released information could become detrimental to the case.
“As for the security of campus, our officers are on patrol 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We utilize foot, Segway and bicycle patrols to get in and around the buildings on campus.”
The log explains that suspicious acts can count as a person that may seem as if they look suspicious enough to commit a crime or of a situation where the environment around the reporter of the suspicious act looks different than normal.
“We are constantly looking for suspicious persons and vehicles in and around campus but in this case, a person or persons were able to break in and steal some equipment,” Sergeant Roy said.
“I can promise you that the police department is conducting a thorough investigation and following up on all leads; this will hopefully lead to the apprehension of the persons responsible for this crime.”
The Student Right to Know Daily Incident Log is available for students to view at the UPD located on Ansel Adams Blvd., behind the Child Development Center.
The UPD is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Students can only view the log while remaining inside the office.
