UPD investigates two Thanksgiving break burglaries at UF

University Police are conducting investigations on two burglaries in UF buildings that could have happened during Thanksgiving break.

More than $5,000 of computer and video-editing equipment was stolen from Pugh and Dauer halls.

A computer monitor and a DVD-editing unit totalling about $3,000 were taken from room 248 in Pugh Hall, UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said.

The Pugh burglary happened sometime between Wednesday and Sunday.

Holcomb said it appeared to have been a forced entry and is still under investigation.

The Dauer Hall burglary occurred sometime between Nov. 25 and Monday, he said.

Two laptops and a computer monitor, estimated at about $2,000, were taken from room 50.

"We have had a few burglaries reported this semester, but not really a high amount of them," Holcomb said.

He said there is a possibility that the stolen items may be found and returned, especially if there are recorded serial numbers for the stolen items.

Police would then be able to enter the items in a national database, and they would come up as stolen if anyone tried to pawn them, Holcomb said.
