BALTIMORE (WMAR) — A Johns Hopkins University Campus Security employee was apparently behind multiple recent reports of theft and trespassing in the Charles Commons Residence Hall.

In a safety alert sent to all students and staff, Campus Security said the employee has been identified and confessed to the crimes.

The incidents were reported the morning of February 21.

According to the University, the employee has been fired and banned from all Johns Hopkins University properties.

"It is wholly unacceptable that these crimes were perpetrated by a Campus Safety and Security employee," read a statement from the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus Safety and Security. "The JHU Office of General Counsel and the Office of Internal Audits have been engaged to investigate the circumstances of these incidents and to determine how to prevent any similar occurrences in the future."

Baltimore Police said Monday that the suspect hasn't yet been taken into custody. They will be identified once formally charged.
