Following a theft of over $200 from the first floor computer lab in Fine Arts, monitors have been cracking down on checking the ID of every student who wishes to use the lab.
According to Head of Public Safety Vickie Weaver, on Tuesday, March 20, it was reported to Public Safety that on Tuesday, March 6, the Project Lab was broken into and multiple computer accessories were stolen.
“The DigiDesign Mbox 2 mini audio boxes, keyboards, mice and microphones were stolen from the four VocalBooths that are in the Project Lab,” said Rhon Fitzwater, systems manager for the Communications Department. “The biggest change is the installation of a security camera that Public Safety monitors. We have also added additional security devices to make it harder to steal USB devices.”
Additionally, Fitzwater has re-stressed to the lab monitors the importance of actively checking all IDs.
The items have yet to be recovered. An investigation is ongoing; anyone with further information is encouraged to contact Public Safety at x5029.
