Clothing, camera stolen from BU’s Harter Union

September 9, 2004

Baker University apparel and a digital camera were stolen when someone broke in to Harter Union last week.

Baldwin Police Chief Mike McKenna said someone tried to break in the university bookstore -- located inside the union -- around 1:30 a.m. Sept. 1 after gaining access to the union by breaking a window on the north side of the building.


McKenna said the person tried to break the glass doors of the bookstore with metal scissors. He said when the person was unsuccessful in gaining entry into the bookstore, the suspect took six shirts, a skirt and a ball cap -- all Baker merchandise -- from a display case in the hall.

He said the person also took a digital camera from an office in the union.

There were students in the lower level of Harter Union during the time of the break in, according to McKenna. He said they heard the noise of the break in and called police.

The digital camera was valued at $300 and the Baker merchandise was valued at $195. McKenna said estimates are still being figured on the damage done to the union.

He said there are currently no suspects in the case.

"We're still working on the case and looking at evidence," he said.
