Colorado State University Police arrested a student on Tuesday, May 17 for a recent string of thefts in the university’s Student Recreation Center.

The student, Carlos Escudero, was booked into the Larimer County Detention Center. Official charges are theft, credit card fraud and ID theft. Escudero is a senior, physiology major from Hurst, Texas.

An increase in the reports of thefts from unattended unlocked lockers and storage cubbies at the center during the spring semester included the loss of backpacks, cell phones and other personal items while students and employees were working out.

CSUPD reminds employees and students to be cautious when leaving or storing their property and to always use locks on personal storage spaces. This includes locking bikes, personal electronics and laptop computers are among items most commonly stolen in crimes of opportunity on campus.

Working out at the Rec? Be sure to secure your belongings.

Students and employees have recently reported an increase in the theft of belongings from the Rec Center. These crimes of opportunity are occurring in the locker rooms when belongings haven’t been secured in a locker -- with a lock -- while people are working out, and in public areas when valuables are left unattended.  

Theft-Prevention Tips:

The Colorado State University Police Department and the Student Recreation Center want to remind you of some general theft-prevention tips while working out:

- Always put your belonging in a locker provided by the Rec Center, and use a good lock on the door.

- Check the lock on your locker to make sure it’s secured. Also use a sturdy lock on the public lockers located in the activity areas to secure your belongings.

– Remember: backpacks or bags are not permitted in activity areas for security reasons.

- Keep all electronic equipment and other items of value with you at all times if you are not putting them in a locker.

- If you see someone acting suspiciously, report it to the Service Center Desk staff in the lobby of the Rec Center immediately.
