CRIME ALERTS FOR THE AURARIA CAMPUS

DAMAGE TO VEHICLES IN CAMPUS PARKING LOTS
January 22, 2014

The Auraria Campus Police Department would like to make our community aware of an ongoing criminal episode.  Recently there have been numerous cases of damage to vehicles (criminal mischief) in parking lots, particularly focused on Lot Maple, near Speer and Champa.  Vehicles have been scratched deeply with an object, causing two lines that curve on the end.  The incidents have led to significant damage to these vehicles; it is possible other instances have remained unreported.  A suspect has not been identified.  The Auraria Campus Police Department encourages our community to:

  • Report any suspicious people or behavior immediately to the ACPD at 9-1-1 from any campus phone or (303)556-5000 from your cell phone.  You     may also utilize emergency phones located throughout the campus to reach us directly.
  • Inspect your vehicle frequently, and immediately report any damage to ACPD.
  • Park in well-lit, high-traffic areas when possible, and don’t segregate your vehicle.

We would like to thank all our community for their cooperation and diligence in assisting us with this issue.
