Man spotted on the roof of the Applied Technology Center

On Sept. 24 at 5:26 p.m. Officers Thomas Stasiak, Ryan Ford, and Michelle Tett were at the DeVos Campus patrolling the buildings when they were sent to the Applied Technology Center to investigate a report of a person on the roof. They were told the man was wearing a black and green shirt with gray jeans. 

On the way to the ATC, they came across a man fitting the previous description. When officers asked if he was on top of the building, the man denied it and said he wasn’t wearing gray jeans. The officers explained that even though he wasn’t wearing jeans, his gray pants still fit the description. The man said he was on a walk headed home. Before he left, the officers took his information down and found his record to be clear.

Graffiti found throughout the Lyon Parking Ramp

On Sept. 27 at 11:29 a.m. Officer Kaye Newberry discovered graffiti on two areas of the Lyon parking ramp while patrolling. There were two black spray painted markings, one that said “WWN” with a triangle and the other was a letter ‘m’ with a half circle and dots. Newberry found a maintenance man looking for the damage and she took him to it. 

After driving through the entire ramp, they also found a red spray painted pole that said “tax the rich” on the sixth level. There was also the same letter ‘m’ symbol outside the elevator on the sixth floor. The areas were cleaned up by maintenance.
