Burglary reported in Building 3

An office on the third floor of Building 3 was burglarized Jan. 9 between noon and 1:45 p.m., according to a timely warning email issued by MIT police yesterday.

An employee reported that she left her office at noon, and the office door was automatically secured behind her. Her laptop and wallet were missing when she returned to the office at about 1:45 p.m. The door appears to have been forced open.

There is no suspect description yet, but MIT police recommend that students notify campus police of any suspicious activity, lock doors and windows, document serial numbers of electronics, and register laptops with IS&T.
