Timely Notification

April 11, 2018

Since January 2018, the SHSU Police Department and the Huntsville Police Department have noted the trend of an individual(s) making entry into residences with unlocked doors during the day and night time hours.  On campus, four burglaries have been reported during the daytime hours where the residence showed no signs of forced entry and the door may have been unsecured.  Personal property was determined to be missing from these residences.  Most recently, Huntsville PD has taking a report from a nearby apartment complex where a female awoke during the night time hours to find a male in her room.  At this time there is only a generalized description of male committing this act (a black male being 5’7” to 5’8” with an afro style haircut).  At this time we would encourage all students to lock their residences while away and during the night time hours while asleep.  If you observe any suspicious activity, please contact the University Police Department at 936-1294-1800.  In the city, please contact the Huntsville Police Department at 936-435-8001.
