At approximately 3:22 a.m. on April 19, Campus Safety received a call about a reported break-in at the Parker Apartments. After Campus Safety officers investigated the apartment, they determined that entrance was most likely gained through an open window.

Campus Safety contacted the Hamilton Police to help out with the investigation of the crime, which is considered a felony. According to Special Assistant to the Vice President for Campus Safety Dick Matte, the lead officers of the investigation are Detective Wood from the Hamilton Police Department and Detective Sergeant Paul from Campus Safety.

Matte also reported that the case is still active and thus not much information is currently being revealed.

“We don’t want to handicap our chances of successfully solving the case,” Matte said.

However, Matte was able to disclose the approximate value of the stolen goods.

“Several thousand dollars of personal property has been reported missing and presumed stolen,” Matte said.

Matte encouraged students to secure their rooms at all times and to contact Campus Safety if they notice any suspicious activity or have any information relevant to the break-in.
