Pawley Hall larcenies

An Oakland University police officer was dispatched to Pawley Hall on Thursday, Jan. 7 to report a possible string of larcenies that have been occurring in the building. The officer met with two women who stated they had noticed a few items had come up missing from the third floor advising center of the building.

The victim of the theft said her brown Louis Vuitton purse was taken from her office sometime overnight. She stated that her credit cards and license were inside the purse when she last saw it on Monday, Dec. 16 when she used a credit card for lunch that day. She stated she noticed it missing on Tuesday, Dec. 17 and believes it was taken off her desk. The woman also said that her purse is worth almost $700 and said her office was locked at the time.

On that same night, there were also reports of three other larcenies in the same building. There were three bottles of hand lotion stolen from the Lowry Child Care Center and a bluetooth speaker stolen from a different room of the child care center. The thefts are assumed to be linked to the purse, but there are currently no suspects.
