Student goes missing, found in Sneden Hall.

At 2:37 p.m. Jan. 26, a woman met with a GRCC police officer at the GRCC police department to talk about her son who she could not find.

She explained to the officer that her son is autistic, and he has class in Sneden Hall, where she drops him off for class and picks him up everyday. She couldn’t find him after waiting for 20 minutes in the Sneden Cafe area.

GRCCPD received information on the student and searched all over campus for him.

While a GRCC police officer and the mother were checking the second floor of Sneden, the mother of the student found him on the second floor.

The student explained to the officer that his class that day had moved to another classroom where they took a test. He was allowed extra time for his test and was late because of that. He said he saw his mom in the driveway of Sneden and then her drive away. He said he was going to wait until she came back to get picked up.

The officer called the police department and said the student was found. The officer advised the student and mother that they should talk with the professor about notifications for the mother if there are any changes to the class.


Student wallet stolen in Ford Fieldhouse, second theft in two weeks

At 2:14 p.m. Jan. 26, a student came to the GRCCPD to report his wallet had been stolen from the men’s locker room at the Ford Fieldhouse.

The student explained that he arrived to the fieldhouse at around 11:30 a.m. for a 12:45 p.m. wellness class. He said he placed his belongings in an unlocked locker.

After the class was over at 1:45 p.m. he returned to his locker to find his wallet and its contents stolen. He said there were other valuable items within the locker, but only his wallet was stolen.

A GRCC police officer checked both the surveillance video of the area outside the locker room, as well as the RaiderCard swipe into the locker room.

The officer found eight people swiped in with hundreds of people piggybacking into the locker room, or getting in without swiping their RaiderCard. He was unable to identify any suspects based upon the surveillance video and RaiderCard access.

The officer told the student to cancel his debit card that was stolen, and contact the police department if there had been any suspicious activity on the card.
