Memphis Tiger apartment targeted during NCAA tourney

While the Tigers tended to business in Texas this weekend, someone targeted an apartment shared by several players.

"I mean, yea, that's a bummer for them," said student Michael McNamara.

It happened around 3:30 Sunday morning at the Carpenter Student Housing Complex.  The news spread rapidly among residents.

"I think it's bad," said another student.

University Police confirm that a patio door leading into a common area was broken.  We're told suspended Tiger Andre Allen discovered the mess.

"I think that they knew they were gone probably and knew they weren't paying attention to that," said student Tanesha Harris.

Right now, the names of all the players who live in the unit are not being released.  However, they have been asked to inspect their belongings to see if anything is missing.  It may turn out to be another tough loss for this season's Tiger team. 
"That didn't make it any better," said Harris.  "But, I'm sure they will be alright," she added.

Other students who live in the Carpenter Complex consider it pretty safe.  It's something they will no longer take for granted.

"My room door is usually unlocked and my front door is unlocked -- so, I might lock it now," said Robert Thomas.

Police currently consider the crime a vandalism.  It may turn into a burglary if anything is determined to be stolen.
