An update on IVC's "security" issue: this morning, the instructor whose fancy Mac was stolen a couple of weeks ago in A200 reports that her replacement Mac has now been stolen, too, apparently over the weekend. UPDATE: correction: this information comes from a colleague who spoke with a member of IVC staff while he and Irvine Police Dept. officials examined the scene (of the aforementioned computer theft) this morning. Looks like entry was through the window.
Near as anyone I know can tell, administration has yet to see fit to alert the campus community to this series of thefts, though the IVC Chief of Police has been communicating with denizens of A200. Chief Glen has scheduled a meeting with them tomorrow at 2:00 (in A200). That could be an interesting meeting. UPDATE: a police officer told me that an individual who had been lurking near the windows of B200 was apprehended early Saturday morning (about 1:00 a.m.). He fled from police but was arrested. The officer implied that another suspect got away.
