After a rash of break-ins in Tiger Stadium last year, only one such incident has been reported in 2018, according to a report by LSU's student newspaper, The Daily Reveille. LSU officials say there are a couple of reasons for that.
Senior Associate Athletic Director Ronnie Haliburton told The Reveille major construction last spring at the stadium -- which required that workers have access at all hours -- made it vulnerable to trespassers.
The chance of rain in LSU's Tiger Stadium? "Never" chants the crowd. But the chance of light? Always.
Because of the number of workers coming and going, it was not always clear who was supposed to be in the stadium, he said.
That phase of construction has now been completed.
Haliburton also pointed to additional cameras and more LSU police patrols as major improvements in stadium security.
LSU Police arrested a Brusly man who broke into Tiger Stadium Monday while also soliciting a prostitute, officers said.
Five juveniles broke into Tiger Stadium at LSU around 1:45 p.m. Saturday, according to LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard.
