    Resident sleeps through Coronado burglary

    A male UA student was burglarized on Feb. 27 while he was asleep.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to Coronado Residence Hall and met with the student March 1 at 6:40 p.m.

    The student said the theft occurred while he was asleep.

    He had fallen asleep on Feb. 27 around 3 a.m. and left the door unlocked because he believed that his roommate would be returning soon.

    Sometime after 3 a.m. the student heard the door open and people whispering.

    The student assumed that it was his roommate and did not get up to see who was in the room. He later found out that his roommate had stayed the night at a friend’s house and did not return to the room that night.

    When the student woke up, he noticed his prescription medication, three different prescription bottles, a digital camera, two graphing calculators and an electric razor were all missing from the room.

    The student said there was a security camera in the hallway near his room.

    There were no suspects or other witnesses at the time of the report.
