After reviewing additional surveillance video from recent residence hall burglaries, the CU Police Department has new information to add to yesterday’s message on thefts and other crimes in Aden, Brackett, Cockerell and Crosman residence halls.
Investigators have determined that women’s underwear was stolen from the laundry room of a residence hall.
As a reminder, the suspect is described as:
- White male in his 20s
- Brown hair and brown beard
- Wearing glasses
He has been seen multiple times wearing a black baseball cap. Embedded in this email is a photograph of him leaving one of the halls.
If you see him, please do not try to stop him, but call 911. CUPD will be increasing patrols in the area.
Additionally, a woman reported that a man may have taken photos or video of a female student while in the shower. Investigators have not determined if that suspect is the same one in the embedded photos.
Anyone with information regarding these crimes is encouraged to contact CUPD at (303) 492-6666. If you wish to share information anonymously, information on contacting Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers is available here.
