The Division of Public Safety has issued a safety advisory after several off-campus homes were recently burglarized.

The advisory said that items were stolen from homes on the west end of campus after the burglar, or burglars, entered through an unlocked door or window.

On Sept. 30, a 21-year-old man, affiliated with the University, living at 40th Street and Baltimore Avenue reported that some of his belongings were missing after he left his front door unlocked. On Sept. 1, four affiliated men reported that after their rear door was left unlocked, several personal items were missing from their house at 39th and Pine streets. A burglary was also reported from a house at 41st and Spruce streets on Oct. 6. And early Tuesday morning, a student reported a burglary at 41st Street and Baltimore Avenue after a rear door was left unlocked.

It is currently unclear how many homes were burglarized in recent days.

DPS is encouraging off-campus residents to continue to lock their doors, whether they are at home or away for the moment.
