On Nov. 15 between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7:30 a.m., the Student Health Center pharmacy was broken into through a window. A day later on Nov. 16 police responded to another report of attempted burglary at 2:43 a.m.
The two attempted burglaries resulted in a campus-wide timely warning being sent out.
The university police are still investigating both crimes. Patricia Drier, the Medical Co-Chief at the health center said they “instituted additional safety measures” but didn’t say what those measures were.
David Dougherty, the campus police chief, assured that the campus was safe. “Dedicated UPD officers are on-duty 24/7 and work diligently to provide a safe environment and perform investigations when crimes do occur.” Dougherty said. He said a low dollar amount was stolen from the pharmacy. When asked what was stolen and if the incident was caught on camera, Dougherty said “providing this information could compromise investigative efforts.” Dougherty said that “if our community finds items on or around campus that one would typically associate with a pharmacy they are asked to not touch the items and call UPD.”
