On Saturday, September 15, 2012, K-State police officers responded to a lapsed burglary at the Lafene Health Center on Sunset Avenue, adjacent to the west side of campus.
Officials say $3,000 worth of various prescription drugs were taken from the pharmacy, located inside the health center. The suspect or suspects forced their way into the pharmacy, police said.

It’s not clear if the burglary is connected to another recent break-in at the medical facility.
At 1:30 AM on September 5, 2012, Riley County police say two men shattered a front window in an effort to burglarize a pain clinic, part of Mercy Regional Health Center’s Sunset Campus. Once inside the hospital building, officials say the suspects were unable to get into the main pain clinic and ended up leaving the area. The incident is being investigated as an aggravated burglary.
