Thefts reported in Owen Arts and Loyd Centers

Six campus thefts have been reported in the past two weeks in the Owen Arts Center and the Paul B. Loyd All-Sports Center, according to SMU Police.

Items stolen range from personal items such as wallets and purses to University property, including cameras, laptops and a ceiling projector.

Most of the thefts have occurred in unsecured areas, Police Chief Mike Snellgrove said.

“I tell people — ‘tis the season to shop, ‘tis the season to steal. Remember to lock up personal items throughout the day and to secure doors and windows before leaving the office at night,” he said.

Snellgrove also urges members of the SMU community to record the make, model and serial number of any electronic items belonging to individuals or to the University.

“These items are usually pawned,” Snellgrove said. “Serial numbers can help us track and recover stolen items in pawn shops.”

Snellgrove also reminds members of the community to report suspicious behaviors to the SMU Police at (214) 768-3333.
