Rutgers dorms burglarized during the day in Piscataway, NJ


PISCATAWAY — Several unlocked rooms in one of Rutgers University’s newest residence halls were broken into Tuesday morning.

Rutgers police say several rooms were broken into at the Livingston Apartments Building B on Joyce Kilmer Avenue in Piscataway on the New Brunswick campus Tuesday morning between 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

The rooms were vacant and “unsecured” at the time, according to police, who did not disclose how many rooms were broken into and the items stolen.

The seven-story Livingston Hall residence hall, part of Livingston Plaza, opened in 2012 and can accommodate 1,488 graduate students. Many students in the Global Roommates program reside at Livingston Hall.

The building includes several restaurants including Starbucks and Qdoba, the kite+key Rutgers Tech Store and a lounge.

Rutgers University police are asking anyone who may have been in the area at the time to call them at 848-932-8025.
