College of William and Mary Police Chief Deborah Cheesebro alerted campus about a set of master facility keys that have been reported lost or stolen in an email sent through the College’s Student Affairs Divison.
Update (5:10 p.m.): The William and Mary Police Department investigation has determined that the keys were lost, not stolen, according to Cheesbro. Facilities Management will be re-keying all residence halls aside from One Tribe Place, which was not impacted. Cheesebro said extra security patrols will continue throughout the weekend on campus.
The keys can be used in any residence hall other than One Tribe Place. There will be increased security patrols of campus for the night.
“This step is being taken out of an abundance of caution until we can complete our investigation and facilities management and residence life can determine the best next course of action,” Cheesebro said in an email. “The safety of each of you is our paramount concern.”
Cheesebro asked for all students to report any suspicious activity to the William and Mary Police.
