Timely Warning: Burglary and Theft Near Campus

Campus Safety is issuing a timely warning regarding a burglary and theft from a motor vehicle.

A black Nissan Armada with Colorado license plate ABG-D97 was seen at both locations. The plate is a red “fleet” license plate. The driver is described as a 20- to 30-year-old male with a thin build and very short or shaved hair. If you see this car or the driver, do not approach them, contact 911.
