An unspecified number of young adults or juveniles have been arrested and charged with burglarizing a car on the campus of North Central College in Naperville, and might be responsible for other recent burglaries there and elsewhere in the city.
Naperville police on Thursday were not immediately available for comment on the matter. It was discussed in a bulletin obtained by The Sun and issued Wednesday afternoon by Jared T. Bogan, the college’s director of campus safety.
Bogan wrote that police, with assistance from campus security officers, “arrested several non-students who had been observed burglarizing a parked vehicle on Loomis Street” early Wednesday morning.
“Upon further investigation, it was discovered the suspects may have entered numerous vehicles” parked on both levels of the school’s Highland Lot, in the Porter Avenue Lot, outside Merner Fieldhouse “and throughout the neighborhood,” Bogan’s statement read in part.
Bogan took the opportunity to remind students, faculty and staff members “to secure personal belongings at all times, and to be sure to lock doors to rooms, offices and vehicles.”
Victims of burglary or other crimes were asked to call the campus safety office at 630-637-5911. Bogan said security personnel “can assist you in filing a report” with police.
