    A twenty-two year old student reported that property was stolen from his bicycle on January 18. He parked it near the W.W Clyde Engineering Building and went inside for one hour. The seat, seat-post, and bookrack on his Mountain Tech bike were gone when he returned. The theft happened sometime between 11:00 a.m. and 12 p.m.

    A Central Processing Unit (CPU), RAM chips and a hard drive were stolen from room N216 of the Carl F. Eyring Science Center. The stolen items were from new computers stored in this room. They were taken sometime between December 1, 1999 and January 16, 2000. BYU is the owner of this missing hardware valued at $1,550.

    A member of BYU faculty reports that thirty-five blank CDs have disappeared from his office in room 365A of the JSB. He says that people had entered the office on several occasions, between January 3 and January 21. These blank CDs have the capacity to load programs and software onto them. The total value of the missing CDs is $50 dollars.

    An employee of the Cannon Center reported a theft of personal property from one of the lockers on January 24. Someone broke into a locker sometime between 2:00 and 6:30 p.m. They took a snowboarding coat, a compact disc player with headphones and a CD. The total amount of loss is $350 and the victim is a twenty one year old student.


    Sometime between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m., on January 23 an unknown suspect forcibly broke into Wymount Terrace Laundromat #5. The suspect opened the change machine and all vending machines. The amount of loss is unknown at this time.


    Sometime between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m on January 24, an unknown person or persons left a 50 gallon barrel of hazardous waste on the loading dock of the chemical plant. The waste was tested to be some kind of solvent waste like a grease removing liquid used by mechanics to clean automobile parts. It was contained in a rusty barrel plugged with a shop rag. This appears to be an off-campus organization that wants BYU to pay to get rid of their chemical waste. BYU had to pay $100 to $200 to get it disposed of. If anyone sees suspicious persons unloading anything after hours, they are urged to contact University Police at 378-2222.
