The Michigan State University Police Department, or MSUPD, logged 43 crimes over Spring Break, including five burglaries and three larcenies.

Between March 1 and March 10, MSUPD updated the Clery Crime & Fire Log to reflect these reports.

According to the crime log, three burglaries occurred within three hours at Wilson Hall March 10.

An MSUPD Facebook post reported a total of six burglaries over break — all at Wilson Hall — while only five have been entered into the crime log to date. All burglarized rooms were unlocked or connected to a suitemate's room that was left unlocked.

There are no known suspects in the burglaries. Items reported stolen include jewelry, clothes, shoes and alcohol. The department's alert of the stolen alcohol incident received negative social media responses.

Two incidents of retail fraud occurred over break: One at the MSU College of Law March 1 and another at Sparty's Market March 5.

An incident of non-aggravated assault was reported at the Breslin Center March 9.

There was a larceny from a car at the Mary Anne McPhail Equine Performance Center March 4 and another larceny at the Main Library March 5. The third reported larceny did not occur over spring break, as an incident at Phillips Hall Feb. 24 was reported March 1.

In addition to 43 criminal incidents, two non-criminal incidents were logged. A health and safety check occurred in Holden Hall March 7 and an accidental fire was reported in University Village Apartments March 9.
