Break-In Reported At Seashore Hall Sunday Morning

University of Iowa Police discovered minor vandalism to the first floor of Seashore Hall Sunday morning, Dec. 12 after responding to a 7:13 a.m. dispatch call of a break-in on the northwest wing of the building.

Chuck Green, assistant vice president and director of public safety, said that someone had illegally entered the first floor of Seashore Hall on the west side of the building where the sociology offices are located. UI police discovered minor vandalism, primarily consisting of paper and bulletin boards being thrown to the floor in some of the corridors on several levels, he said. 

Green said the preliminary investigation has not uncovered any evidence to suggest there were any attempts to enter offices. He also said that Spence Laboratories of Psychology, as well as the psychology wings of Seashore Hall, were untouched and that there appears to be no connection between this incident and the November break-in that caused extensive damage to Seashore Hall and Spence Labs.
