Harvard Dorm Rooms Broken Into and Burglarized as Students Slept

“stole laptops, Air Pods, a backpack and a wallet”

It’s extremely rare for thieves to break and enter while a resident is at home. In the case of a dorm room, it’s almost unheard of. This is so brazen.

WCVB News reported:

Harvard University dorm rooms broken into, burglarized as residents slept, police say

Harvard University police are warning students about recent dorm break-ins that happened while the residents were sleeping.

Police responded last week to two incidents of unlawful entries that happened in Mower Hall and Wigglesworth Hall.

In both instances, occupants said that while they were sleeping, someone climbed through their first-floor window and stole laptops, Air Pods, a backpack and a wallet from their rooms.

Officials said it is unclear if the incidents are connected.

Insurance scam?

Not Mather House?

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that Hah-vahd students are dumb enough to leave first floor windows unsecured when they are at their most vulnerable.

“Hot burglaries” are statistically more common in places where the thieves expect little to no resistance, as opposed to facing a potentially lethal force threat. Glad the thieves chose only to steal.

It’s much more common for thieves to go through the dorm jiggling doorknobs to check for unlocked doors. They usually do this during the day, when students are at classes.

Other students are reluctant to keep these thieves from entering the dorm as students leave because they don’t want to be called racist. They also don’t want to call the cops on the thieves because they’ve seen all the news reports where anyone who mistakenly calls the cops is tarred as a racist for life.

If they run off the Nuclear Operators, they will still have big problem. A bunch of privates in the Russian army are not going to know how to safely operate the plant.

And these break-ins occur AFTER students forced the closure of the police station on campus. Coincidence?
