Possession of a controlled substance
At 6 p.m. on Sept. 18, an officer in a patrol car noticed smoke coming from a Nissan Maxima in Ramp 1 of the parking garage. The officer approached the two suspects, who turned away from the patrol car. Another officer came on the scene and into the suspects’ field of vision. One suspect threw a green pipe underneath a different car. The officers smelled marijuana on the suspects and confiscated a pipe with marijuana residue and a mason jar with a cotton ball size of weed inside. The suspects were handcuffed and are being charged with possession of a controlled substance.
At 3 p.m. on Sept. 23, a call was made to campus police concerning a female having trouble breathing in the Main Building. Upon appearing at the scene, dispatch found the female alert. She had a coughing fit in the classroom and left to not interrupt the lesson. She sat in the hallway because of the breathing troubles. She had an asthma attack, and an ambulance arrived shortly thereafter.
In the main building, six anonymous calls of a man passed out on third floor men’s bathroom were made to campus police at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 19. An officer woke the man. He was homeless and wanted a place to sleep. The officer said he was trespassing and that he had to leave the campus. The homeless man left without resistance.
On Sept. 24, dispatch received a call about a man passed out on the sidewalk by the Learning Resource Center. An officer woke the man who complained of pain in his left side. The man smelled of feces, urine, and alcohol. He did not have identification.
The officer on the scene called
an ambulance. The man went with the ambulance initially, but he decided not to cooperate and jumped out. He ran southbound on Ransom St. A custodian cleaned the mess he left behind on the sidewalk.
Damage to Property
On Sept. 24 at 4:30 p.m., a custodian called dispatch about graffiti in the men’s bathroom in the Student Community Center.
An officer arrived and found a racist statement written on the framework of the stall door. Photographs were taken and the door was cleaned. Sgt. Heard was notified of the graffiti. No suspect has been named.
Damage to Property
A foot patrol found graffiti in an elevator on ramp 1 at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 20. The word “SLAM” was written in black permanent marker. A custodian was called to clean it up.
In the afternoon of Sept. 15, a dispatch was sent to the Science Building where a female called campus police on a fellow female student. Both are in the nursing program, and the suspect followed the victim down a hallway and into the elevator yelling at her. The victim felt threatened and walked out of the elevator.
The suspect then threw a plastic water bottle, hitting the victim with no injury.
The dispute was over mixed up phone chargers. The officer dispatched to the scene interviewed the victim and suspect, and the situation has been since resolved with no charges set.
