Timely Warning: Wallet stolen from Mukilteo Hall staff office
On Tuesday, June 18 at approximately 3 p.m., Campus Security received a report from a staff member in Mukilteo Hall of a wallet being stolen from an office on the first floor. Lynnwood Police Department was called and a report was filed.
You are receiving this timely warning in compliance with The Clery Act and because you are part of the Edmonds Community College community. The Jeanne Clery Act classifies this crime as a burglary. Through awareness, we create a safer campus community.
The theft is believed to have occurred between 2:30 and 3 p.m. The stolen wallet contained a credit card that was used at several locations in the Bothell area around 4 p.m.
We have reached out to LPD for further suspect description information. If it becomes available, we will send an update.
Anyone with further information is encouraged to contact Campus Security at 425.754.0154.
Whenever a situation is of concern to our campus community, we will notify you. Edmonds CC urges anyone who is a victim of any crime to call 911 immediately AND make a report to Campus Security.
Please remember to always take these safety precautions both on and off campus:
- Be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious people or behavior to local law enforcement and campus security.
- When possible, travel in groups and walk in well-lit areas.
- Report defective locks on windows and doors IMMEDIATELY to a campus official.
- Never sleep in an unlocked room or house.
- Ensure doors are locked in any room where you are leaving valuables unattended.
- If you lose the keys to your residence, have the lock(s) changed.

What if It Snows?
In inclement weather, Edmonds Community College typically makes decisions regarding emergency closures or class cancellations by 5 a.m. for day classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes (or as early as circumstances allow). Then we start getting the word out.
The college seeks to stay open to fulfill its mission whenever possible — so, most likely, it will be classes as usual for the college — but individuals should protect their own health and safety. Take care of yourself and be safe!
Students, work with your instructors if you need to make other arrangements in an emergency.
Important notice to students, employees, and the community:
Due to ongoing fire and safety concerns of the National Fire Protection Association, Edmonds Community College prohibits the use, possession, or storage of "hoverboard" style transport devices on campus property. This includes but is not limited to student housing, classrooms, meeting space, walkways, hallways, and open courtyards.
