Carothers Dormitory, 2501 Whitis

Occurred on 11-2-05 between 9:30 PM and 9:35 PM.

Theft: A white Apple iPod and it attached earphones were stolen from a table inside a classroom. The owner turned his back to the table to speak with a professor. When the owner turned back to face the table his property had been stolen. Loss value: $100.00.

Crime Prevention Tip:

When I say you should never leave your property unattended, what I mean is you should never turn your back on your property. As you can see, this theft occurred while the owner was just feet away from the property and only took a few seconds. Be mindful of your property.

Theft: A Bianchi Axis bicycle was stolen while it was secured with a cable lock to a bicycle rack located on the east side of the building. Loss value: $500.00.

Crime Prevention Tip:

This is the third bicycle theft from this area in the last three days. If you, or someone you know locks a bicycle to a bicycle rack on the east side of this building take notice. Use a minimum of a u-lock; for maximum security use a u-lock and an independently locking cable lock to secure your bicycle. Report suspicious people to the UT Police Department as soon as possible. You can reach UTPD at 512-471-4441.
