Police are reminding students at Harvard to lock their doors and close their windows while they look for whoever is responsible for these break-ins.
Investigators say the break-ins happened between late Friday night and early Saturday morning at Quincy and Adams houses and another on DeWolfe Street.

Campus police said the thief snagged laptops, iPads, airpods, a wallet and cash. In every case, students left their doors either unlocked or open. Some students said they weren’t shocked, as their classmates often leave their doors unlocked.
Something similar happened in the area just three months ago, when campus police arrested someone after multiple burglaries at two dorms. In those cases, students also reported stolen laptops and iPads.
“Students will just leave their key in the door to make partying more accessible but in turn it makes their belongings more accessible to the public," Harvard student Lauren Perl said.
It’s unclear at this point whether the break-ins are related.
