Ex-police officer held in break-in

        HAMILTON — A former Hamilton police officer was arrested Wednesday in connection with an overnight break-in at Mosler Hall at Miami University's campus here.

        Jeffrey V. Caniglia, who was most recently employed with a private security company at Miami University, was charged with breaking and entering, safecracking and possession of criminal tools.

        Mr. Caniglia is scheduled to appear in Hamilton Municipal Court to face the charges. Hamilton police said he was fired from the department Oct. 29, 1996, for a “wide range of misconduct.”

        University employees discovered the break-in at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and reported to police that a safe at Mosler Hall had been tampered with. Detectives responded to the scene to gather evidence, which police said resulted in Mr. Caniglia's arrest.

        Police said Mr. Caniglia is a student at Miami, but a university official said that was incorrect.

        James R. Neidhard, director of development, said he could not discuss the matter beyond saying that officials are “grateful for the help and collaborative efforts of both the Hamilton city police department and the Miami University police force in apprehending the suspect.”

        Mosler Hall houses offices of admissions and financial aid, records and registration, the bookstore, business services, classrooms, computer labs and faculty and academic advising offices.
