Light theft

A bike theft occurred Oct. 4 between 12:40 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. in the Social Science building bike rack according to Chief of Campus Safety John Farmer.

The victim’s front and rear bike lights were stolen from the Social Science building bike rack, Farmer said.

The victim was reportedly a male student and although there was a camera in the building, Farmer said the picture wasn’t clear enough to identify the suspect.

Vending vandal

A soda machine was reportedly vandalized Oct. 8 at 1:45 a.m. east of the track field, Farmer said.

Officers don’t know if any money or items were stolen but contacted the vendor to assess damage, Farmer said.

Farmer said they checked the rest of the vending machines and nothing else was harmed.

Vehicle burglary

A male Swap Meet attendee had multiple belongings stolen from his vehicle Oct. 8 between 12:20 p.m. and 1 p.m., Farmer said.

According to Farmer, the stolen items included a leather jacket, a tool box and the black leather seats of the victim’s GMC SUV.

The victim claimed the stolen items had a combined worth of $1,000, Farmer said.

According to Farmer, there are no current suspects.

Bike theft

A black beach cruiser bike was reportedly stolen Wednesday between 11:40 a.m. and 6:55 p.m. on the north side of the Fitness Complex, Farmer said.

According to Farmer, the victim is a foreign exchange student and borrowed the bike from the people he lives with.

Farmer recommended students use a u-shaped lock to protect bikes instead of a blue cable lock because “those can be cut like butter and fast.”

Campus burglary

A male burglary suspect was spotted off campus Thursday and reportedly came onto campus at 6:40 p.m., according to Farmer.

Officers came onto campus and searched Watson Hall, the Student Center, the Associated Students Bookstore, and the Classrooms and Labs building, Farmer said.

After an hour of searching the officers confirmed the suspect was not on campus, Farmer said.
