Alert Regarding Recent Off-Campus Burglaries
Over the past eight weeks, WUPD has learned of several burglaries in off-campus apartments rented by WashU students. In almost all of these cases, access was initially gained through ground floor apartment windows or doors by standing on chairs or nearby objects. Most of the windows or doors were unlocked, including apartments on the upper levels of the buildings.
This morning, WUPD learned that three apartments in the same building in the 6600 block of Washington Ave. were broken into between 3:00a.m.-8:00 a.m. while the occupants were sleeping It appears that an unidentified person stood on a chair, removed a screen and forced the window open of an apartment on the ground floor of the building. Once inside the first apartment, the person entered two other apartments, which were unlocked. The person took several gaming consoles and a television. University City PD is investigating, with the assistance of WUPD.
WUPD sent Security Memos out to the Danforth Campus after receiving the prior reports and is now issuing a Crime Alert following this morning’s report to increase awareness of these incidents and remind our community members of additional safety precautions that can be taken. WUPD has increased its neighborhood security patrol services as well.
