On Wednesday, March 8, at 9:15 a.m., two officers on foot patrol walked by an unoccupied and parked 1995 white Chevrolet pickup truck owned by the College on Metzger Drive.

Upon inspecting the vehicle to see if it was secured, the officers smelled what they believed to be burnt marijuana emanating from the vehicle’s interior. The passenger window of the vehicle was rolled down about two inches.

At this time, one officer opened the passenger door, which could not be secured because of a broken door lock, and detected a stronger odor of marijuana. Two more officers responded to assist with the investigation.

No weapons or contraband were in plain view in the vehicle.

At 9:35 a.m., two male students arrived on the scene. The officers observed both students had glassy, bloodshot eyes. The first student told Campus Police that he and the second student had signed the van out between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. that morning, from John Carter, housekeeping supervisor.

During the interview, the second student said that the first student drove the vehicle to Green Lane Fields, where both students smoked marijuana. After smoking, the first student operated the vehicle before stopping at Eickhoff Hall for a meal break.

The first student corroborated the second student’s story.

Both students were escorted to Carter’s office in Wolfe Hall. They returned the truck keys and signed out of work.

There is no further information at this time.


On Thursday, March 9, at 10:50 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to Cromwell Hall on a report of criminal mischief.

Upon arrival, an officer met with Tom Scheuren, sophomore year experience residence director. Scheuren showed the officer graffiti written in a men’s bathroom stall.

The graffiti read “Hail Hitler, cromwell Nazi youth, Fuck College highschool Rock Bitch WHS Represent!, This Machine Kills nigers, karmic juggernaut and two swastikas!”

Staff told Campus Police that the graffiti was not there the previous day.

Building Services was notified to clean the writing.

There are no suspects or further information at this time.


On Sunday, March 19, at 5:20 p.m., Campus Police was dispatched to Wolfe Hall on a report of a theft.

The student told an officer that some time between 12:30 p.m. on Friday, March 10, and 4:20 p.m. on March 19, an unknown person had removed her Dell laptop computer from the top drawer of her desk.

The student said that she had placed the laptop in the top middle drawer of her desk before she left for Spring Break. The student told the officer that she left her room at 12:30 p.m. on March 10. Her roommate left after her, at 2:30 p.m. on the same day.

The student filled out an inventory of stolen property sheet and an informal statement.

The student was given a copy of the case number and advised that a report would be on file.

There is no further information at this time.
