Gregory Juliano is currently in custody at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $15,000 bond, according to jail records. He’s been formally charged with one count of larceny in a building after allegedly being caught with the stolen iPad by Ann Arbor police Saturday.
According to court records, Juliano is going to be charged with five counts of larceny in a building and one count of stealing a financial transaction device.
Juliano is one of three people thought to be causing an increase in larcenies at the university’s Central Campus so far in 2012, according to spokeswoman Diane Brown. Juliano worked alone while Jason Russ, who has been charged with five felonies, and Russ’ accomplice worked together, Brown said.
“Between these three guys several of this year’s larcenies in the Central Campus area would be connected,” she said.
Russ’ accomplice has yet to be formally charged with a crime but a warrant could be filed soon, Brown said. He and Russ are accused of mainly stealing credit cards and using them to purchase gift cards, Brown said.
Juliano was mainly stealing unattended laptops from the Hatcher Graduate Library and Angell Hall, according to Brown.
Three of the larcenies occurred at those buildings on March 24, according to court records. Brown said Juliano took a wallet from a backpack that was left unattended between 12:30 and 2:54 p.m. in Angell Hall, 435 South State St. An unauthorized charge was made on the credit card before it was canceled, Brown said.
On that same day, Brown said Juliano took a laptop computer and a calculator that were left unattended in a fifth-floor study area at about 12:50 p.m in the Hatcher Graduate Library, 913 South University Ave. Brown said Juliano took a backpack with a laptop inside of it some time between 3:20and 3:50 p.m. while in the same building.
Juliano also is wanted for stealing an unattended laptop on the afternoon of March 18 in the Hatcher library and a backpack containing a laptop on the afternoon of March 29 in Angell Hall.
Brown urged people studying on campus to keep an eye on their possessions at all times.
“All of this is unattended belongings,” she said.

I find it odd that a lot of students don't realize that it takes all of 5 seconds (if that) to take a lap top, power cord and several other times when they are left unattended. A lot of crimes like this can be avoided when you take the proper steps to protect yourself. Yes crime does happen in Ann Arbor, larcenies like this being the most common.

Lets hope that U of M bounces him out of school.Make room for a Michigan Person who is looking for an education.

Don't respond to Mr. Arfkahk and perhaps he will go away. Feeding him yields more comments...
Wed, Apr 4, 2012 : 1:10 p.m.
I generally enjoy reading Don's comments. I feel he is much less of a troll than many, many others on here and he actually posts comments that might make people think for a few seconds. Whether you agree with him or not, his sarcasm, coupled with above-average grammar and at least slight knowledge of the subjects he comments on, makes for enjoyable reading to me. Keep up the good work, Don!

Do not feed the trolls; good advice... ;-)

We all have thoughts, feelings, dreams, aspirations, talents of our own - and a more malicious, reckless side that needs to be tamed. When dogs misbehave, we send them to be trained to stop the harmful behaviors. When people misbehave, we don't take such rational actions because those deciding their fate are not those who have to deal with the consequences of creating a traumatized, alienated individual with few legitimate career options. Imagine if one beat their dog for urinating in the house, then locked it in a kennel in the basement for the rest of the month. There would be a lot more problems when that cage door was opened. The criminal justice system should be focused on rehabilitation, not punishment, as it is in everyone's best interest. Vengeance has never left anyone at peace, and only begins a vicious cycle that is hard to end and leaves society as a whole paying the price.

Unfortunately there is no known effective treatment for criminality. Seriously, there isn't.

Tue, Apr 3, 2012 : 10:26 p.m.
Don B. Arfkahk, you suggest: "The way we deal with crime must be pragmatic and based off what psychologists and sociologists have determined to result in the best outcomes - that is, the lowest recidivism rates." Please remember that some Roman Catholic bishops tried that and it didn't work for poo.

The way we deal with crime must be pragmatic and based off what psychologists and sociologists have determined to result in the best outcomes - that is, the lowest recidivism rates. Anything less, and your moment of satisfaction when that thief goes to spend a few years doing hard time could become a moment of grief for another when he leaves and stabs someone in a mugging because rehabilitation was abandoned in favor of punishment. Again, how do we deal with problem dogs? We send them off to be trained. We don't kick them and lock them in the basement.

You can have your vengeance or you can have a more peaceful, prosperous, and crime free society. You can't have both, the evidence is irrefutable. Take your pick.

"Brown urged people studying on campus to keep an eye on their possessions at all times. "All of this is unattended belongings," she said." I guess all of these students assumed they wouldn't have to worry since they were attending UM and not EMU. Of course, most EMU students have the common sense to know better. That's why the thefts that happen at EMU are either dorm room break ins or hold-ups.
Tue, Apr 3, 2012 : 9:25 p.m.
The way you wrote that doesn't really make EMU sound any better. Sounds worse actually. Hold ups?

The increase in campus larcenies has been going on so long in 2011 that it is now 2012

Thanks for pointing out that typo, it's been fixed.

I remember in college I found a vending machine that kept giving me back my dimes but crediting me for the transaction. I took so many candy bars from that thing......the guilt has wracked me for years. It feels good to come clean.
Tue, Apr 3, 2012 : 7:19 p.m.
dude...10 cent candy bars....you're dating yourself...but then again I remember them as well!

It would seem that this alleged perpetrator skipped the college president's annual ethics lecture.

Whatever his punishment, he needs to be given an out from this lifestyle. Most those with malicious and destructive tendencies are a product of their environment, and not born that way; the good news is this means they can be rehabilitated. The question is whether this is something we will choose to do. Throw him in prison, hammer him with humiliation and you will see years in and out of jail, more thefts and possibly more serious crimes, an increasingly alienated and angry individual and a fat bill for the taxpayer. Bad for all of you, but good for me, as I've invested great sums in Michigan's private prison industry of the future, where men like Gregory will be made to work for $0.25/hour for Boeing, who will be paying me $8/hour - I will get rich, and they will too, because it will allow them to lay off full time employees making $30/hour.

Don, I have a factual argument for you: When I was a teenager I got into some fairly serious trouble. I was punished severely. I worked incredibly hard to turn my life around. I am pretty successful. But it certainly did not come easy. Fact: if I would've had a slap on the wrist, you can bet the world that I would've continued the self-destructive, criminal behavior I was engaged in. I realized that I never wanted to get into trouble again. Sometimes, most of the time, it really is that simple. Criminals need to be punished, and the punishment needs to fit the crime. And this is serious.
Tue, Apr 3, 2012 : 9:49 p.m.
@Don, your words: "I will get rich, and they will too" Soooo, now you say: "DNB, I am already rich. I just want to make more money. " Which is it? The thing about liars that I've noticed is that they say so many lies, they begin to believe them, and they cannot easily discern the truth from lies anymore. Have a great day, Don!

DNB, I am already rich. I just want to make more money. You cannot deny the facts. The evidence is irrefutable and those like Jay Thomas have little to offer aside from insults. Where are the factual arguments?
Tue, Apr 3, 2012 : 8:54 p.m.
What a bunch of malarky, Don. You sound just like the rather naive do gooders who have pizza parties for ex-cons in an attempt to sway them from a life of crime (mentioned in the past here on this website). At least the guy on parole in that article was honest enough to say he might have to return to selling drugs!

Good for you; you keep repeating the same drivel here in the comments section over and over again. I guess if you say it enough times, you believe it ... that you'll get rich. Good luck with that one!
