Laptops taken from U District sororities and fraternities

Seattle police are looking for who stole at least 15 laptops from four University District sorority and fraternity houses in the past week.

In each of the home invasions, the first of which was reported Friday, the burglar or burglars sneaked into the houses between midnight and 8 a.m. while residents were either sleeping or partying, according to the Seattle Police Department. The laptops were stolen from common areas and study rooms.

The majority of the laptops were stolen from sorority houses on the 4700 block of 19th Avenue Northeast and the 4500 block of 18th Avenue Northeast. Home invasions also occurred on the 4500 block of 17th Avenue Northeast and the 2100 block of Northeast 47th Street.

One sorority reported that makeup had been stolen along with the laptops.

The thefts were reported between Nov. 1 and Nov. 5. At least one of the burglaries reportedly happened during a Halloween party.
