Purdue police investigating recent thefts from fraternities

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University police are investigating reported thefts during which cash and two laptop computers were taken from two fraternity houses.

Lt. Fred Davis said the thefts, which occurred over about the last two weeks, were from Alpha Tau Omega, 314 N. Russell St., and FarmHouse Fraternity, 1028 W. State St.

On Sunday (April 3) two Alpha Tau Omega residents reported their laptops, estimated to be worth a total of about $2,300, were stolen. Another resident of the house had previously reported that $110 in cash had been taken from his wallet.

Davis said that on March 31 three FarmHouse residents reported that a total of about $300 in cash had been taken from their rooms.

In all of the cases under investigation, the cash and property had been left in unsecured rooms and no suspicious activity had been reported, Davis said.

“As we began investigating these incidents, it seemed like an appropriate time to remind everyone on campus to ensure their cash and personal items are safe when left unattended,” Davis said. “In most cases all it takes is a secured door or a locked desk drawer to deter a theft.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Purdue police at the anonymous WeTip hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (1-800-782-7463), or they can call the Purdue University Crime Line at 765-496-3784.
