Burglars strike UH's Moore Hall twice

Thieves have broken into a building at the University of Hawaii's Manoa campus twice in the last week, stealing valuable computers.

Seven offices on the fourth floor of Moore Hall on the University of Manoa campus were broken into last Friday. Two MacBooks and four Apple computers were taken.

The latest break-in occurred at around 11 p.m. Tuesday night, and this time into several offices on the third floor, Campus Security said.

The doors of those offices now have wooden frames, as well as metal plates around the doorknobs. Those were put in this morning after the burglars struck.

Police say two computers, both MacBooks, were taken.

Having these break-ins has students concerned and upset.

"I think it's really terrible, especially since it happened twice. And it's just really a shame, especially if its UH students who are doing this. It's just really a shame you're paying back your school this way," Kelsie Kanetake said, a senior French student at UH.

Apparently some offices had PC's, which were untouched.

Security says it received reports of a suspicious couple outside Moore Hall last night. They tried to talk to the couple, but they fled in a white pickup truck.

The man is described as being in his late 20s, 6 ft. tall, 160 lbs., with dirty blonde hair. He was carrying a laptop bag. The woman is 5 ft. 2 inches, 120 lbs., with long blond straight hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or UH Campus Security, which says it is working to maximize security in the area.
