In the past week, University police have received a number of reports of vehicle break-ins. Three were in Deacon Place Apartments (on the corner of Long Dr. and University Pkwy.). Three were in the parking lot at the University’s Indoor Tennis Center (499 Deacon Boulevard).
In these incidents, the vehicle’s doors were either left unlocked or the windows were broken. Some involved thefts of items that were left in plain view in the passenger areas of the vehicle.
In response to these reports, University Police is increasing patrols in the area.
UPD asks that campus community members make it a habit to lock vehicles and keep valuables out of view.
