Yesterday, some cars were broken into in the Shady Grove Garage. Police are investigating. See your email for more details. Yesterday afternoon, several cars in the Shady Grove Garage were broken into by having their windows smashed. The thief tried several door handles prior to breaking the first window, but finally resorted to breaking windows. We are reviewing our CCTV recordings and increasing our patrols of the garages and parking lots. The car break-ins are being investigated by the Montgomery County Police and we'll offer them any assistance that we can. In the meantime, please be sure to secure your car completely. Lock your doors, roll your windows all the way up, and make sure that all items of value are completely hidden from view. Don't leave anything visible through the windows of your parked car. Thieves who break into cars usually do so to steal property that they can see through the windows. Please be vigilant and report anything that seems out of the ordinary to USG Public Safety (301-738-6065) or call 911 to reach the Montgomery County Police. You will note increased patrols of the Shady Grove Garage and Parking Lot 1 by USG Security Guards. If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, consider walking back to your cars with friends or classmates and dont hesitate to request that a guard escort you to your vehicle.
