How Should These Clery Act Crimes Be Classified in Your ASR?

The correct answer is: d) Do not include this incident in your Clery Act statistics

If a perpetrator steals an item from an area of open access (i.e., there is no unlawful entry), the incident is a Larceny.

Since there is no evidence that someone unlawfully entered the room to steal the watch, this is a Larceny, which doesn’t count as a Clery crime.
