To the CU Boulder Community:
On Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021, at approximately 3 a.m., the CU Boulder Police Department (CUPD) was notified of a possible burglary in the Newton Court apartments. The victims reported that someone entered their apartment between 1:30 and 3 a.m. through an unlocked sliding patio door. One person was in the apartment when the burglary occurred, but did not have contact with the suspect and was not aware of the incident until later. During the course of the investigation, officers discovered that this was the second time that someone had entered this apartment and taken items. A previous burglary occurred on Jan. 8, 2021. That incident had not been previously reported.
Several identification items were taken this morning, including a passport, student visa, clothes, shoes, and a wallet with a driver’s license and debit and credit cards. A large hiking backpack was also taken. The suspect appears to have left behind some of their own clothing items. Officers followed bike tracks in the snow leading away from the apartment until they led to a plowed parking lot and the trail ended.
CUPD is currently investigating the incident. There is no physical description of the suspect. Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to contact CUPD at (303) 492-6666.
