UC Berkeley journalism school burglary suspects sought – East Bay Times
BERKELEY — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding two suspects who took about $25,000 worth of equipment from UC Berkeley’s graduate school of journalism.
At 7:44 a.m. July 17, police responded to a reported burglary at the university’s North Gate Hall, home to the graduate school.
Surveillance cameras at the hall revealed two suspects captured on video around 3 a.m., and police said they believe they got in through an unsecured window. Police were releasing images to help identity the suspects.
Both suspects were African-American men in his 20s with slim builds and average heights. One wore a dark hooded jacket, a gold watch, shiny black pants with a distinctive pattern and silver side-zippers, red patent-leather high-top sneakers and a dark-colored mask covering his lower face.
The other had a goatee and wore a black hooded sweatshirt with grey stripes on its sleeves, black pants and black boots with multiple-color shoelaces.
Police reminded the campus community to maintain an up-to-date inventory of office equipment, including make, model and serial number of items, in a secure location, and to lock doors, desks and windows and take keys when leaving sites.
Anyone with information should call UC Berkeley police’s criminal investigative bureau at 510-642-0472 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 510-642-6760 on holidays.
