A student and his roommate, an alumnus of the university, reported that at or about 10:10 pm on 03/09/2022, their private apartment in the 6600 block of Kingsbury Blvd. was burglarized. The roommate reported being in the apartment when he thought he heard someone moving around in the student's bedroom. The roommate never saw the person who made the noise. The student returned to the apartment a short time later and observed that someone had entered and exited his bedroom through an unsecure, ground floor window. Upon checking his room, the student discovered that a pair of shoes and jewelry was taken.
