A student’s gold iPhone 6 was stolen from the Luria Library on Sunday afternoon. The iPhone was plugged in at the charging station, where the owner left it unattended for a few minutes. When he returned to the library, the iPhone was gone. Library staff informed Campus Security that the suspect who stole an iPhone and a set of car keys on October 5 was spotted in the library around the same time the iPhone was stolen. The suspect is a former City College student who is no longer allowed on campus due to several instances of disruptive behavior. Security may have to report the suspect to the Santa Barbara Police Department next time they make contact with him. 

Oct. 24 – 7 a.m.

Campus Security observed two instances of graffiti at different locations on West Campus. One is believed to be gang-related and the other is unknown. Both have been removed by custodians.
