Idaho State University Public Safety officers are ramping up security after a series of car break-ins early Thursday morning.
The school reported several cars parked along Bartz Way outside the McIntosh Manor housing complex had their windows smashed and items removed Thursday between 5 a.m. And 6 a.m.
Neither the school nor police have said how many vehicles were targeted, but campus police officers say they’re taking steps to minimize the opportunity for future break-ins.
“Lighting and we also have increased the officers driving through that area. We just want to be more vigilant. We have sent out something to our campus, to our students, to our campus community making them aware that if you see something, say something,” said Lewis Eakins, ISU’s director of public safety.
If you have any information regarding the break-ins or were a victim of one, you’re asked to call the Pocatello Police Department at 234-6100.
