On Friday, Kinne sent an email alerting campus that a student had broken into a room and stolen items from an alumnus earlier that morning. The student was later arrested and held in Grafton County Correctional Facility. He may face stolen property charges, the Valley News reported.

While performing a routine party check in Theta Delta Chi fraternity, officers observed a large amount of water in the fraternity's stairwell at 1:41 a.m. Officers later determined that the water came from a hose used to spray partygoers in the fraternity's basement.

Massachusetts police officers had found a vehicle owned by a College employee in a rest area on Wednesday. The vehicle was towed and remained unclaimed for three days. Safety and Security officials successfully notified the vehicle's owner on Saturday.
