CRIME ADVISORY

 

BURLINGTON POLICE REPORT 2 Armed Robberies

 

Burlington Police are investigating 2 separate, though related, Armed Robberies that occurred between the hours of 3:00am and 4:30 am on 9/2/12. Both incidents occurred in the area of North Union, Pearl, Loomis, Isham, Green and Hickok streets in Burlington.  Both victims were walking in the area at the time of the incident.

 

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’ 8” – 5’10” tall, with a slender build and wearing dark clothing.  It is believed that the same suspect committed both crimes. The subject brandished a weapon -- no one was injured. Property was taken in both incidents.    

 

The Burlington Police Department is actively investigating these incidents and would like to speak with anyone who may have been in the area, witnessed the incident or may have seen the male in that area.


If you have any information, PLEASE CALL Burlington Police at 658-2700.

UVM Police would like to remind everyone to always have safety in mind by:

 

·        Travel in groups whenever possible

·        Stay in well-lit and well-traveled areas when feasible

·        Always be aware of your surroundings

·        Have emergency numbers programed into your cellular phone

·        If you see something out of place or suspicious – call the police immediately.

 

UVM Police urge the UVM community to always be aware of your surroundings while walking or running and avoid being distracted by listening to music or talking on a cell phone, especially at night. If possible walk or run with someone and in well lighted and populated areas. Also be aware of the emergency blue lights all over campus and use them in an emergency.

"Crime Awareness" is an integral component of "crime prevention." Knowledge that crimes occur encourages communities to actively participate in crime prevention efforts (e.g., locking doors, not walking alone, reporting suspicious activity to police) and, therefore, creates a safer environment. Lack of information invites complacency. The following message was approved for campus-wide distribution by the Department of Police Services Chief/Director Lianne Tuomey to alert you to an incident, to promote safety on campus and, in part, to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
