In the early morning hours of Oct. 17, a laptop and charger went missing from the Fairfax Campus Starbucks, worth an estimated cost of $1,500. Two days later, property was stolen in President’s Park. On Oct. 20., property valued at $320 was stolen from the Hampton Roads housing building. These thefts, and other crime incidents, are available on the George Mason University Police Department’s Crime Incident Log.

The larceny cases are currently active and therefore, according to Steven Leone, the investigating officer on the Starbucks theft, the police cannot disclose more information.

“We get the call and we follow up with trying to locate the suspect,” Leone said. “We give Fairfax County the information we have on the suspect and they see if they have anything that matches.”

The log shows almost daily alcohol or drug-related offenses and several traffic-related incidents, including one case of vandalism in the Rappahannock parking deck where a victim’s car was keyed. On Oct. 15., there was one case of a “Peeping Tom” prowling the University Commons.

Tips regarding these cases can be submitted anonymously online with potential cash rewards if the tip leads to a suspect’s capture.
