TRU warns campus of break and enter suspect

Thompson Rivers University administration has issued a security notice to campus following multiple break-ins over the past month. In accompanying photos, a man can be seen carrying a computer in the Arts and Education building.

On March 10, we reported that TRUSU had been broken into and office equipment had been stolen on March 5. There was also an attempted break-in at The Omega’s offices on March 9.

On March 15, a wallet and a cell phone were reported stolen from McGill student housing and Kamloops Crime Stoppers posted a notice on its website.

In its notice, TRU was not specific about what had been broken into or what had been stolen, or if any of the above incidents were related. The notice, seen below, was signed by Jacquetta Goy, TRU’s Director of Risk Management.

“Over the past few weeks TRU has been the target of a number of attempted and successful break-ins to several different areas across the campus. The Kamloops RCMP is currently investigating the thefts. We now have reason to believe that these break-ins are connected, and may have been committed by the individual in the images below.

We do not believe that there is any danger to personal safety but should you see this individual or anyone else behaving suspiciously please contact security immediately at Local 5033, or 250-828-5033 from an outside line.

Please be vigilant in making sure any valuables are stored under lock and key and out of sight (especially electronic equipment) and that doors to offices and classrooms are locked when not in use. If you see anything out of the ordinary or if you realize that something has gone missing from an office area, please let security know as soon as you are able to do so.”
