Community Alert: Police arrest suspect in Durham burglaries

Sept. 23, 2003

To the UNH Community:

Last night, the Durham Police Department arrested Jeffrey Gelinas, 27, of Barrington for two counts of loitering and prowling. According to Durham Police Chief David Kurz, Mr. Gelinas is the primary suspect in the series of burglaries that occurred in off-campus apartments over the summer. However, until he is formally charged for these incidents, the investigation remains active.

While we are relieved that the case may be near closure, I want to remind faculty, students and staff that the safety tips at are just as important now as they were before. This is evidenced by the recent violent events that have directly affected three college communities in the region and that cast a shadow of sadness across all communities.

Use common sense, stay alert, keep doors and windows locked, take care of yourself and each other.

Thank you.
Mark Rubinstein
Vice President for Student and Academic Services
