WVU Police issue campus warning after burglary on North Spruce Street

MORGANTOWN — West Virginia University Police issued a campus warning after a reported burglary at a university-owned building at 633 North Spruce Street.

Around 9 a.m. Tuesday, a cleaning crew discovered three unauthorized individuals inside the building. The suspects—a woman and two men—fled before officers arrived. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspects is urged to contact University Police at 304-293-COPS (2677) or visit the department at 992 Elmer Prince Drive, Morgantown. Tips can be shared anonymously.

In an unrelated case, UPD made an arrest following an early morning off-campus burglary the same day.

To enhance campus safety, WVU Police offer the following tips:

  • ALWAYS LOCK EXTERIOR DOORS. This includes your residence hall, apartment, house, and car doors.
  • Develop a routine to check that doors, windows, and other locks are secured, especially at night.
  • Ensure windows, doors, and vehicles are locked when not monitored.
  • Do not leave spare keys in accessible places.
  • If you lose your key or ID, report it immediately to change locks and suspend ID access until a replacement is issued.
  • If you believe you are in danger, call 911 immediately.
  • Report potentially dangerous situations or crimes to 911 or WVUPD.
  • Download the WVU LiveSafe app.
  • Use the blue light emergency call system if encountering an emergency on campus.
