Crime Alert - Bailey Howe Library Laptop thefts

On Sunday, October 30, 2011, UVM Police received two reports of stolen laptops that occurred around noon at the Bailey Howe Library.  Since October 22nd, we've had five laptop thefts from the Bailey - Howe Library.

A witness in the area observed this person with a black "hoodie" jacket, "hoodie" up over his head, who "lapped" the area several times - around the time of the thefts. Surveillance footage shows a white male leaving the library with a black “hoodie” up, shortly after the thefts. UVM Police is interested in identifying and speaking with the person wearing this "hoodie".

Information can be sent anonymously via the UVM Police Services website at www.uvm.edu/police or by texting the info to 847411 (tip411) and including the keyword UVM in your message. You can call us directly at 802-656-3473 (Case Officer – Sgt. Jim Phelps). UVM Police Services thanks you for your efforts to make our campus a safer place.

"Crime Awareness" is an integral component of "crime prevention." Knowledge that crimes occur encourages communities to actively participate in crime prevention efforts (e.g., locking doors, not walking alone, reporting suspicious activity to police) and, therefore, creates a safer environment. Lack of information invites complacency.
The following message was approved for campus-wide distribution by the Department of Police Services Chief / Director Lianne Tuomey to alert you to an incident, to promote safety on campus and, in part, to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
