Burglary spree targets Claremont College facilities

Burglars made a spree through 3 of the Claremont Colleges over a 4-day period last week, beginning Friday, September 27 and ending on Monday, September 30. Twice crooks targeted Edmunds Hall on the Pomona College campus. The first attempt was unsuccessful, but on a second round an office was pried open and computer-related items valued at $280 were taken. The Keck Science Center was also hit twice. In one case a $1580 laptop was stolen, in the second a man’s wallet was relieved of $50 and discarded. A Sixth Street dorm room was also burglarized, with the swindler making off with $550 in stolen property. Reports were taken, but there are no suspects.
