After thefts, campus still safe, UP says By DANIEL MONTEVERDE EDITOR IN CHIEF When Bret Mahoney couldn't find his GMC Yukon where he left it in the Freret Street Garage, he said he knew what happened. "I thought I was having one of those senior moments," he joked. But realizing he didn't misplace his SUV, he became the third student to have his automobile stolen from the garage in a little more than a month. While the recent rash of auto theft BOLOs has slowed during the past two weeks, University Police said they are working to put the brakes on additional vehicle thefts from the garage and to reassure students about campus security. UP Chief Patrick Bailey said while those efforts kick into gear, the department's main objective is to maintain a safe campus environment and protect individuals, and depending on whom you ask, the efforts are working. Mahoney said despite the theft of his car, he still feels safe on campus, but because of crimes that appear to be moving closer to campus with each new report, international business freshman Lee Ann Moss said she is becoming more concerned about safety. "Sometimes walking around, especially late at night coming from the library, 1 don't feel safe," Moss said. "We have an open campus, and we have the security available. We just need to have it at the right place at the right time." Bailey, however, said students should not feel concern about personal safety at Loyola. "We have a safe campus," Bailey said. "One of my first pri - orities is to have the people here... feel safe. I don't want to jinx myself, but that's why you don't see any kind of attacks or anything happen on the campus." Realizing the possibility of additional auto thefts, Bailey said that's an area that could lend itself more room for concern from students who drive the same or similar models of the stolen vehicles. "If I had one of those SUVs, I guess that's a different story as far as property is concerned — we're talking about professional car thieves," he said. Bailey said UP and the New Orleans Police Department have an ongoing working relationship and are investigating various angles of the thefts, including patterns, and concentrating security measures on the Freret Street Garage in particular during nighttime hours. "We're hoping that's going to kind of deter (thieves)," Bailey said. Detectives, Bailey said, are investigating the thefts, and NOPD is helping to patrol the campus sporadically in unmarked vehicles. UP Captain Roger Pinac said there's no clear-cut reason why SUVs at Loyola are being targeted, but there are stories of see SGA, page 3 see MONK, page 5 see THEFT.page 4 A LOYOLA TRADITION SINCK 1923 • "IP R A (~ RLA T L R LOYOLA' Sports I^HI Go online to get line scores and r%JM standings on Wolfpack baseball LOYOUMAROON.COM MAROON DIRECTORY: CALENDAR, page 2 | LIFE & TIMES, page 6 | SPORTS, page 8 | EDITORIAL, page 14 | NEWS TIPS: 865 3535 .. us ■*:». .-liuuMmuiiS'SMiii.s.'iiu..
