Harvard campus police said that laptops, iPads, backpacks, wallets, and money were stolen from students' rooms. The burglaries took place late Friday night and early Saturday morning at campus residence halls at the Quincy House, Adams House, and another location less than half a mile away.
In each robbery, the thief went into dorm rooms where the room was unlocked or the door was propped open, according to police.
"I know some people [it's] for convenience because they have to use multiple keys, some of the dorms you have to key into your dorm, and then your entryway, and then your actual room so some students don't lock their room because all of the other things are locked," one student said. "And I think sometimes people just end up getting in."
Police do not know if the overnight break-ins are related at this time. They are asking students to remember to lock their doors and windows.
