In an update from last week’s KU crime alert regarding aggravated burglary in Lewis residence hall, university police are now saying that at least six dorm rooms were stolen from.
“Originally we reported that three rooms had been burglarized, but after further investigation we found there were six,” said Capt. James Anguiano.
The alert was automatically sent out to all KU students on Thursday after the victims reported hundreds of dollars in cash and prescription medication missing. University police also reported that the theft happened while the residents in the room were sleeping.
Theft on campus is common crime, but aggravated burglary is a much more infrequent and serious issue we deal with, said Anguiano.
Since the incident, KU public safety is requesting students to make sure they keep their doors locked at all times, even if they are inside and especially if they live in a residence hall. Additionally, if anybody has any information about the investigation they should contact KU public safety at 785-864-5900.
At this time, the police are still searching for suspects and are not sure how many offenders were involved in the crime.
