String of crimes erupt on campus

A series of nine crimes was discovered Sunday, Aug. 25 that included the damage of several cars and campus facilities. According to a UC Davis Campus Crime Alert Bulletin, Sproul Hall, the Arboretum, TB 009, South Hall, Dutton Hall, the Educational Opportunity building, Aggie Village, the School of Education and the University House have all been affected.

Thirty-one broken windows and a racial epithet found on a blackboard of Dutton Hall have since been reported. Chancellor Linda Katehi expressed her concern in a letter to the community sent earlier today, citing the racial slur as particularly troubling amidst the commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 demonstration for racial equality.

The UC Davis Police encourage any member of the community with information regarding these crimes to contact them at (530) 752-COPS.
