The Ithaca College Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management is investigating the report of a burglary in Emerson Hall. According to the complainant, someone entered a room between 01/28/2013 and 01/29/2013 and stole a wallet. There was no sign of forced entry into the room.


It is unknown if the burglary of the wallet in Emerson Hall is related to the recent burglaries of textbooks which had occurred in the area of the Upper and Lower Quads and the East Tower.
