University Police are investigating a series of larcenies from unlocked residence hall rooms in Red Jacket Quad on the North Campus. The suspects are believed to be a black male and female working together as a team.

The black male is described as 30 years old, stocky (wide) build, blue hoodie, dark hat or ball cap, bald, with light facial hair. The black female is described as 20 to 30 years old, tall, thin and wearing a red bandana and jeans.

The suspects are entering residence hall rooms uninvited and, when challenged by the occupant(s), they claim to have accidentally entered the wrong room while looking for a resident.

UB Police stress that this is a totally preventable crime; residents are enouraged to lock their residence hall rooms. 

Members of the UB community are reminded to be vigilant at all times. Report any unusual circumstances, suspicious persons or activities to the University Police as soon as possible.
