The burglaries likely happened between March 11 and March 20, Spokesman David Maley said.

He said the incident happened while students were away on break and reported when student returned to campus last weekend.

In an email sent to students, officials said the following about the incidents:

“At approximately 9:20 a.m. on Saturday, March 19, a facilities staff member discovered that a balcony door was open in Circle Apartment Building 170. There were no residents in the apartment at the time and no signs of forced entry, and Public Safety secured the door. Two days later a resident reported that a watch was missing from the apartment.

On Sunday, March 20, a resident of Terrace 8 reported that an unknown person entered their room and stole checks. There were no signs of forced entry to the room.

These incidents follow reports during the winter break period of three burglaries in Circle Apartment buildings in which entry appears to have been made through sliding glass doors or balconies. It is unknown if these incidents are related, and there is no suspect information at this time.”

The Office of Public Safety is asking anyone with information about the incidents to call  607-274-3333 or leave an anonymous voicemail message at 607-274-1060.
