Biology computers stolen
November 8, 2007 6:47 PM
Thieves broke into the Biology department late Friday night, taking computers and hard drives from different laboratories as well as breaking into faculty offices.
The burglary happened sometime between 10 p.m. on Friday night and 7 a.m. Saturday morning, according to Michael Fong, biology operations manager.
The suspects took five iMac computers, a couple of hard drives and keys, Fong said. There is no cost estimate of the equipment taken.
University Police Captain Pat Wasley declined to comment on the case.
The burglary occurred on the 6th and 7th floors in Hensill Hall. The facilities are open 24 hours but no one was in the labs when the burglary happened, Fong said.
Fong said that the suspects broke into one lab, took a set of keys and used the keys to break into four research labs, a couple of faculty offices and attempted to break into four more offices.
“More people are angry,” Fong said. “The computers contained research thesis papers.”
The labs are being re-keyed and more security measures will be added, according to Fong.
“With any break in, you feel opposed upon,” Fong said. “We are working quickly to repair the damages.”
