UK Police reports vehicle theft on campus


The University of Kentucky Police Department sent out a campus-wide email informing the community of reports they received of vehicles being stolen from Cornerstone Garage.

At least two vehicle thefts were reported on Saturday, Aug. 19.

“UKPD has also documented an increase in reports of theft of property from vehicles in Cornerstone and several lots across the campus area,” UKPD said in the email.

UKPD is actively investigating several individuals who may be linked to the recent vehicle thefts and break-ins. 

According to the email, these individuals are not affiliated with the campus community. 

The email added that UK values being a safe community for all students, staff, faculty and guests. To further promote a safe and secure campus environment, UK Police offers the following safety precautions:

  • “Make sure there are no valuables visible in your vehicle, whether on or off campus. This makes your vehicle an easy target.
  • Call UKPD at 859-257-8573 if you have any property stolen on campus.
  • Call UKPD if you notice something or someone acting suspicious. For emergencies, call 911.
  • Maintain a thorough record of your valuables, including photographs, serial numbers, makes, and models, etc.
  • Make sure that all doors are locked,” the email said.
