Nov. 12 – UPS Damages Paperwork (Bldg. 8)

Several contents in an important package went missing, and the incident was deemed an accident.

A UNF employee used the UPS Store in English Hall to send a large package to Miami. The package contained thirteen packets of paperwork that related to a real-estate transaction, and all of the packets contained important personal and financial information.

When the package arrived, six of the thirteen packets were missing. The items in the received packets were loosely assembled, and one of the pieces of paperwork had a dirty boot print on it.

UPS concluded that the items went missing when the package was ripped open after becoming hung up between machines. Because they believe it was an accident, they did not investigate further.

The employee contacted the identity protection company she uses, and was told there was no activity on her credit bureau account. The company told the victim that they would extend seven more years of service to her if she could obtain an information report from police.

Nov. 14 –Missing Student (Bldg. 45) 

An Englewood high school student went missing while on a field trip to UNF.

UPD made efforts to find the male, 14, who had been at the Lazzara Theater with several hundred other high school students. Nearly an hour after the search started, one of the visiting students claimed to have contacted the male via text messaging.

The male claimed that he had missed the bus leaving UNF, and had walked to the Town Center. UPD officers made attempts to contact the missing student, but were unsuccessful.
