Both the door windows and sunroof had been left partially opened. Several items in the glove compartment, the trunk and boxes in the back seat had been "moved around." At this time, it is unknown if any items had been stolen from the vehicle.

Crime Prevention Tip

In this case, the owner kept numerous items inside her vehicle. The owner did not know all of the documents which may have been left inside the car and does not know if the intruder obtained any personal information which could be used to steal her identity. Help protect yourself from the immediate consequences of an auto burglary by making sure you do not leave any items inside your vehicle and that you keep all of your windows rolled-up and your doors locked when you park your car. Never leave personal documents inside your car. This includes credit card statements, personal identification cards, paycheck stubs, mail, and insurance forms.

Criminal Trespass (2 counts) / Public Intoxication: Two non-UT subjects pushed a cleaning cart out of the way of a 1st floor men's restroom and entered the restroom. The cleaning cart had a posted sign on it which indicated the restroom was closed for cleaning. Two female custodial services employees advised the subjects the restroom was closed. The subjects stated they "couldn't hold it," then unzipped their pants and began to urinate. Both subjects were found to have consumed alcoholic beverages. Both subjects were issued a written criminal trespass warning and turned over to a sober friend who agreed to take the subjects home. The officer later observed one of the subjects in the driver's seat of a running vehicle. That subject was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the point he was a physical endangerment to himself and others.
