NDPD warns community about burglary
Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, May 21, 2019
A burglary in Legacy Village at Notre Dame Apartments on Monday morning was reported to the Notre Dame Police Department (NDPD), NDPD announced in an email to the Notre Dame community Monday evening.
The suspect entered the apartment — about four blocks east of Notre Dame’s campus — through a window or a service entrance while residents of the apartment slept, the email said. The suspect was described as “a man, approximately 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build, wearing dark clothing.”
Anyone with information on the break-in should contact the Saint Joseph County Police Department, the email said.
“The Notre Dame Police Department has been in contact with our partners at the Saint Joseph County Police Department about this incident, and we will continue to work together for the safety of our communities,” the email said.
The email offered several tactics for community members to protect themselves from theft, including installing a security system, locking all doors and windows, stashing valuables in a safe location, closing the blinds and avoiding posting one’s location on social media, among others.
