Timely Warning (21-09 FINAL UPDATE)
Clery Crime: Burglary
Under the Clery Act, the University of Florida issues Timely Warning messages regarding Clery Act crimes which pose a serious and continuing threat to the campus community.
This message is the final update to the Timely Warning message (21-09) that was sent on December 3, 2021 and the update that was sent on February 16, 2022. The UF community was notified of a suspect who used a cell phone to record multiple victims without their knowledge. The suspect was later identified as Deontre Donnell Mason, who was arrested on 6/6/2022 in Marion, IL on a warrant issued for nine charges of Video Voyeurism submitted by the University of Florida Police Department. On Tuesday (6/21/22), he was extradited to Alachua County, FL and is currently being held on a $900,000 bond.
We want to thank the UF community, especially those who came forward, in assisting UFPD in their investigation of these acts. Your support led to this successful arrest and to the continued safety of our campus.
The University of Florida strongly believes that no person is responsible for harm inflicted by another person.
Criminal incidents can be reported to UF CSAs who are designated, trained, and mandatory reporters under the Clery Act when victims chose not to report to law enforcement.
Reporting to law enforcement is encouraged by calling 9-1-1 or through the GatorSafe app.
