Multiple Burglaries Reported On Campus At Unlocked Offices

A pair of burglaries involving unlocked campus offices are alleged to have taken place Friday, according to two Timely Warnings sent out by Penn State.

The first report came out Friday evening a few hours after an unknown individual allegedly entered unlocked offices in Oswald Tower and removed personal items. The other Timely Warning was sent out Monday morning and detailed an alleged burglary at Grange Building also involving an unknown individual entering unlocked offices.

The alleged Oswald Tower burglary was reported as occurring at around 2 p.m Friday, while the one in Grange Building was reported to have happened between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day. Both buildings are located in the central part of campus near Pollock Road. No other details were included about either incident in the Timely Warning reports.

In response to the two reported burglaries, Campus Police issued the following tips:

  • Report all suspicious persons, vehicles, and activities to your University Police department immediately.
  • Take valuables with you if you leave for an extended period of time or buy a secure safe or trunk.
  • Keep doors and windows locked. Report inoperable locks and latches to the appropriate maintenance personnel.
