On Tuesday, Oct. 12, an officer was dispatched to Cromwell Hall to talk to the General Manager for Mehl Communications.

The General Manager said that between the hours of 3 p.m. on Oct. 11 and 7 a.m. on Oct. 12, a spool of rope was taken from a manhole.

On Friday, Oct. 1, an officer on parking enforcement noticed a vehicle with a taped on inspection sticker in the Lot 9 parking deck.

The inspection sticker was for a 1995 Volkswagen car, although the car itself was a 1994 Ford. When questioning the owner of the car, the male student said, “I know it’s bad. My vehicle failed inspection. I am getting rid of the vehicle in a week anyway.”

The student told the officers that he told a stranger at a 7/11 convenience store that his car failed inspection and the stranger gave him an extra inspection sticker that he had in his car.

The student was given a ticket for a fraudulent inspection sticker. The sticker was confiscated as evidence. The inspection number was entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) but it returned no report.

There is no further information at this time.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 1:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to Cromwell Hall due to a report of marijuana odor emanating from a resident’s room.

The officers knocked on the door from which the smell, as well as unacceptable noise levels, was coming.

A male student opened up the door and in clear view was a multi-colored glass bong and a green vegetative substance sitting on the desk.

When asked “whose bong is that,” a female student replied, “it is mine.” The female student was placed under arrest and was transported along with her glass bong and purse to police headquarters for processing.

She also had a small plastic bag containing marijuana and another glass bowl in her purse.

The items were removed, photographed and logged in as evidence.

The student refused medical treatment and refused to use the bathroom. She was released after being processed and read her Miranda Rights.

There is no further information at this time.
