HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Authorities are investigating a recent string of burglaries on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.

Officials said the latest incidents happened over the weekend.

In one incident, five computers were stolen from a lab at the Art Building. In the other, someone tried to pry open a storage room door at the Marine Science Building.

Both incidents were reported to Honolulu police.

UH-Manoa also received three separate office burglary reports last week. Authorities said two computers were stolen during the incidents that happened at Kuykendall and Pope Lab.

Officials are warning staff to close and lock all doors and windows, and to replace screens or jalousies with secure windows.

Anyone with information is asked to call the UH-Manoa Department of Public Safety at (808) 956-6911 or the Honolulu Police Department.
