Residence Hall Thefts

Alert Type: Information

Start Time: Dec 4, 2018 @ 9:00am

End Time: Undetermined

Status: OK

Campus Safety has been advised of multiple thefts from residence hall rooms over the last few weeks. The thefts appear to have occurred after rooms have been left unoccupied and unlocked. Items that have been reported stolen include cash, credit cards and some jewelry. It is not uncommon to experience thefts in the residence halls during move-in or move-out because property is often left unattended. Also, during the holiday season the increase in valuable gifts located inside residence hall rooms can be an attractive target for thieves.


  • Please remember to secure your rooms when you leave, even if just for a moment.
  • If you notice persons unfamiliar to your hall wandering around inside try to engage them in conversation. Many times suspects will leave an area once they know they have been noticed.
  • Call Campus Safety to report any crimes or acts of suspicious activity. 253-535-7441

Stay safe.
