Public Safety searches for iPhone bandit

Public Safety is searching for a man who stole an iPhone from a student's room in Wright Hall Monday morning while that student was taking a shower, Public Safety officials said.

The male student left his room at about 9:30 a.m. to take a shower and returned 15 minutes later to find someone leaving his unlocked dorm room with his iPhone.

The suspect is a Hispanic or Latino man, 20-24 years old and was seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and brown pants, according to a Campus Crime Alert sent by Public Safety. The man had short hair and was 5’3” to 5’4” tall.

“Detectives are actively working it and hope to get some feedback from the community,” Public Safety Capt. Donald Reichling said in an e-mail.

If people would only lock their doors. It really irks me whenever a theft occurs on campus. I always begin reading each incident report presuming that the affected student left his/her door unlocked and presumption is always correct. What happens as a result of said theft? PS sends out an e-mail reminding all students to lock their doors in order to prevent such a thing from happening. Does the next student to have something stolen from him/her heed this advice? No. My point: lock your freaking doors and this will not happen! You have no one to blame but yourself for your negligence. Such crimes are so preventable.
