UW-Madison police are investigating four instances of burglary and theft between Friday, April 13 and Monday, according to a UW-Madison Crime Warning.
The crimes — believed to be connected — occurred in unlocked offices, classrooms and at Capital Cafe in Grainger Hall, according to the alert. Police believe the same suspect is responsible for all four crimes.
UWPD is actively investigating these cases.
In the alert, police encouraged the campus community to be aware of their surroundings and suspicious activity, such as an unknown person trying to open various doors to see if they are unlocked. They emphasized the importance of locking doors, saying it “takes just seconds for someone to steal your property.”
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact UWPD.
