Multiple reports of locker thefts in the R build at Triton College located at 2000 Fifth Avenue. Students reported to the campus police division that someone broken into lockers while they attended class in the building, electronics such as cell phones and music players were among the items stolen from the men’s locker room. A staff worker from the department, who wanted to remain nameless, talked to the 5th Avenue Journal about the steps that are currently being taken to prevent this from happening in the future:
“We watch closely for those that we don’t recognize, usually we have both a male and female worker on hand to check to see what they are doing. They walk through the locker rooms to make sure people are doing what they are doing”, said the staff worker. When asked if there being any recent arrest on the matter, the person said that there were a suspected few, but that’s up to the campus police to release those details, but does know that a few were questioned on the matter. The journal reached out to the campus police department but could not be reached for comment.
The locker room itself recently has been remodeled this year with new carpeting and lockers for the students. Until the situation is resolved, students are urged to place all valuables such as wallets or electronics in their cars for safe keeping or invest in a heavy-duty lock for the lockers. Anyone with information should call the campus police with any information.
