Every week The State Hornet compiles crimes recorded in the campus crime log into a map detailing their location and current status.

Five crimes were reported in the Sacramento State Police Department’s crime log for the week ending on April 18. 

Three of these crimes were burglaries, one of them being a car burglary. This was the first time in three weeks where more than three crimes were reported at Sac State.

In one of those burglaries, a witness saw a suspicious man inside a Kadema Hall classroom Thursday. When officers made contact with the man, he confessed to stealing a laptop from a classroom. 

Officer Matt Light issued the man a citation for burglary and released him.  

Additionally, a man in possession of meth was found tampering with an electrical box in Parking Structure IV at Folsom Hall.
