Someone broke into a University van and stole campus keys.  The keys could give them access to nearly 50 Portland and Gorham campus buildings.  The University is in the process of replacing locks of the affected buildings.  Student, personnel, and other records may be accessible.  Faculty, staff, and students were notified of the incident and encouraged to shut electronic devices down when leaving them unattended.  They were also advised to not leave sensitive information or belongings in campus buildings without additional locks.
