Purdue police urge students to secure personal belongings

September 30, 2015  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University police are reminding students to keep their doors to their residences locked and their personal belongings secured after two recent reports of residential entries near campus.

"We had one incident where an unknown person walked into a house and asked for someone who did not live there," Purdue police Capt. Eric Chin said. "In another incident, there was a theft reported."

In addition to locking up personal belongings or keeping them in a secure place when possible, police also urge the campus community to promptly report any suspicious incidents. If a suspect is seen, do not confront the person but make mental notes for an accurate description.
