Off-campus houses robbed

Observer Staff Report | Thursday, November 21, 2013

An email sent Wednesday from Notre Dame’s Off Campus Council notified students of a burglary and attempted burglary that took place last weekend.

A burglary to a student residence took place Sunday between 12 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the 700 block of N. Notre Dame Ave., the email stated. Entry was gained by raising a screen then opening an unlocked window, and an Apple laptop was taken.

The email also stated someone broke into a car at that site and took a backpack. Subject information is not available.

An attempted burglary also occurred in the same block between Friday at 11:30 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 a.m., the email stated. Entry was attempted by breaking a porch window, but nothing was taken. Subject information is unavailable for that incident as well, according to the email.

The email directed students to the crime prevention tips listed on the Notre Dame Security Police website and the live crime map of Notre Dame, South Bend and Mishawaka at www.crimereports.com.
