Police Briefs


The Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) received several reports over the last several days of white MacBook laptops being stolen from locked and unlocked areas. On Oct. 28, a laptop and wallet were taken from a student's room. The door was closed but not locked.

On Nov. 1 at 12:15 a.m., a student reported that she had invited a non-Tufts student into her Latin Way suite. She left the individual, who claimed to be from Washington, D.C., and to be here looking at graduate schools, unattended. When she returned, her laptop and iPod had been stolen.

Another student reported early in the morning on Nov. 1 that a laptop had been taken from Sophia Gordon Hall. The laptop was on a table when several students were gathered in the dorm, and had gone missing by the time everyone had left for the night.

Later that day, an individual locked his room at 83 Professors Row before leaving to go out for the night. When he returned the next morning, the door was open and had scuff marks on it, and his laptop was missing.SCOOBY SCANDAL

A residential director in Lewis Hall called TUPD early in the morning on Nov. 1 and reported that she heard voices from the hallway saying things like, "I bet I can reach that," according to TUPD Sgt. Joseph Tilton.

When officers arrived, two exit signs in the hall had been pulled down and wires were exposed. The officers called an electrician and asked students in the area if they had seen who caused the damage.

One student stated that one of the suspects was wearing a Scooby Doo costume. "Another mystery," Tilton said.
