Theft: An Armani Exchange bag containing a set of keys, a blue Tommy Hilfiger t-shirt, a pair of Levi blue jeans, a Sony MPIO MP3 player, a Sanyo cell phone and a wallet with various identification and credit cards was stolen when it was left inside an unsecured locker located inside a 2nd floor weight room. Loss value: $490.00.

Crime Prevention Tip:

The victim in this case probably believed he could keep an eye on his property because he would be in the same room as his property while he worked out. Im not sure how many of you lift weights, but I assure you, when you are lying underneath several hundred pounds of free weights, you are not looking at or even thinking about your property. Concentrate on your workout while protecting your property make sure to invest a quarter to secure your weight room locker.

Bicycle thefts are on the rise again. These thefts are occurring in the evening and during the daytime times when there are numerous potential witnesses. Be one of those witnesses and help UTPD apprehend a bike thief. With your help, we can protect every bicycle on campus you may even earn a free pizza by calling UTPD to report a bike theft that leads to the apprehension of said thief.
