Laptops were allegedly stolen from two residents’ rooms in Clara Dickson Hall and Mary Donlon Hall on Wednesday evening, according to a crime alert issued by Cornell University Police Department.

The resident of Dickson was not present in his room during the alleged burglary of his laptop that occurred between 6 and 6:30 p.m.

CUPD responded to the incident at Dickson at 6:58 p.m., according to the alert. The police “canvassed the area” and spoke with witnesses.

One of two suspects described by witnesses is a man of “undetermined race,” who wore a black backpack and had a height of around 6-feet. The other suspect is a black man who wore a “light-colored shirt” and had a height of around 6-feet.

While the police were at Dickson, they were notified of an alleged burglary at Donlon, according to the alert. Similar to the Dickson incident, a person took a laptop from a resident’s unoccupied room. Information about the suspects is not available, according to the alert.

These incidences follow the alleged burglaries of objects from Clara Dickson Hall, Low Rise 6 and High Rise 5 on March 29, according to a CUPD crime alert.
