Some students returning to New Mexico Tech after winter break are finding some of their stuff missing.

A university spokesperson said someone broke into 28 dorm rooms on the campus in Socorro. The burglaries happened between Dec.14 and Dec. 20.

The thefts range from just a few books to thousands of dollars of electronics.

Campus police are working with other police agencies in their investigation, as well as working with the Residential Life Office to determine how this can be prevented in the future.
