Reese Building breaking and entering

Officers took three separate reports of breaking and entering in reference to a series of incidents at the Reese Building. Police assume the building was broken into overnight.

In a statement to the Niner Times, Deputy Police Chief Josh Huffman said, “We highly suggest that students download the free Livesafe App to their mobile phones. This would allow them to immediately communicate with our dispatchers, anonymously report tips with pictures or videos and even provide GPS coordinates to incidents as they occur in real time.”

Additionally, the UNC Charlotte Police Department website states, “If you are the victim or a witness of a crime on campus, it is extremely important that you file a report with the Campus Police. Filing a report is easy. Simply call 704-687-2200 or stop by the Police Department which is located at 9151 Cameron Blvd, directly across from the Student Health Center.”
