Feb. 12 – 11:35 a.m.

Physical Education staff found evidence of attempted break-ins to several lockers in the men’s locker room. One student’s lock was damaged to the point it was unable to be opened; no items were missing from that locker. The second locker was missing its lock completely, and the student says it appears their bag was rifled through although nothing was taken. No other damage was discovered at that time.

Feb. 13 – 8 a.m.

A student found several items missing from their locker. The student says the locker was secured, but no lock was found in the area. Among the items missing are a pair of Lebron James basketball shoes and a pair of shorts. The incident is possibly related to the break-ins reported on the previous day. Since the incident involves lockers it is not considered burglary, said Director of Security Erik Fricke. It is up to the students involved whether they wish to report the stolen items to the police.
