Police respond to roof access tampering

On Feb. 28 at approximately 6:45 p.m., a College superintendent and project manager reported to Campus Police that the roof access door of Wolfe Hall appeared to be tampered with — the lock was jammed and the door could not be opened. At approximately 7:03 p.m., a College Access Control employee on call was contacted to address the issue.

Professional Staff arrived on the scene at approximately 7:31 p.m. and reported that there was damage to the door — which appeared to be old — and said that the supervisor of Access Control had been notified. He stated that he tried to access the door with a screwdriver and was met with negative results. He believed the situation would be fine until a more permanent solution could be arranged.

Campus Police arrived on scene at approximately 7:50 p.m. and observed signs of tampering to the access door. However, the door remained secured.

Photographs were taken in addition to the report. The case remains open.

He was then asked for his date of birth, which he provided. The student then proceeded to provide another possible date of birth. Campus Police provided both dates to dispatch.
