Over the weekend, IITPSD took 2 theft reports from Crown Hall.
On Saturday, January 25th, at approximately 1:00pm, an unidentified male black, 18-22 yrs old, wearing all black, entered Crown Hall and took a bag containing a laptop computer.
Although the building was locked, the offender was allowed access by another student. This is commonly referred to as “piggy backing”.
On Sunday, January 26th, at approximately 4:00 pm, IITPSD took a second theft report involving an unattended bag containing a laptop computer.
Last week, students at Crown, granted access to two male offenders. Once inside, the suspects stole a student’s purse.
One of the suspects was subsequently arrested by IITPSD.
IITPSD advises that students need to secure ALL their belongings and leave nothing unattended.
Do not allow unknown individuals into secured buildings and spaces.
Whereas it might appear rude to make someone swipe their ID card, this ensures the integrity of the security applications and ensures your safety.
Please contact IITPSD immediately to report any suspicious individuals or activity. 312.808.6363.
