Authorities at the University of St. Thomas are warning students about three burglaries at Flynn Hall.

According to St. Thomas Public Safety, the burglaries occurred Wednesday around 4:45 p.m. and all involved the same female suspect.


In the first, a St. Thomas student reported he found the suspect searching through his unlocked apartment. He confronted her, and she said she was looking for a friend and left. Nothing was stolen from the apartment.

Another student reported that same suspect entered his unlocked apartment and opened the door to his bedroom. She said she was looking for Peter and left. Nothing was stolen, Public Safety said.

A third student reported a female suspect entered her unlocked apartment, said she was there to meet her friend Angela and left after hearing no one named Angela lived there. That student said she later noticed cash missing from her apartment.

Public Safety officers met the suspect as she left Flynn Hall, but she ran to a nearby vehicle and drove away.

The suspect is described as 5-feet tall, approximately 40 years old with black hair. At the time of the burglaries, she was wearing a black knee-length coat with a hood, brown or red leggings and black and white sneakers. She also had a large black purse and a large metal ring on her left hand.

The vehicle she fled in is a black Chrysler Pacifica.
