CU Police ask for assistance in identifying Libby Hall burglary suspect

The University of Colorado Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a residence hall burglary suspect.

At approximately 1:40 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 24, a suspect entered a Libby Hall resident’s room and attempted to steal a computer printer. The resident left his room momentarily, with the door ajar, to use the restroom. When the resident returned, he noticed a man holding a printer about 5 to 10 feet away from his room.

The resident then noticed his printer was missing from the room. The resident yelled at the suspect and began chasing him down the hallway. The suspect later placed the printer on the floor and escaped through the hall’s south doors.

The suspect is described as a white, college-age male who is approximately 6 feet tall with brown hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a gray long-sleeve patterned jacket and blue jeans. Video surveillance from Libby Hall has been obtained by CU Police detectives. WACTH THE VIDEO HERE: http://bitly.com/LibbyHallburglary

UCPD reminds students to always maintain security of your rooms, even if just departing momentarily. Also, it appears the suspect entered Libby Hall without swiping a Buff OneCard to gain access. Please do not let strangers “tailgate” behind you as you enter residence halls.  For more home and personal safety tips, see http://www.colorado.edu/news/series/know-your-environment.

The Police Department asks that anyone with information on the suspect’s identity to contact Detective Paul Davis at 303-492-8168. The Case Number is 12-2512.
