Unlocked door

A car was reportedly broken into Thursday between 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. in the Merrimac Way Parking Lot according to Chief of Campus Safety John Farmer.

The male victim said he had left the door unlocked due to remote key issues he was having and the loose change was missing from the center console of the vehicle when he returned, Farmer said.

Video footage was discovered of three suspicious male students on skateboards, and officers responded to the area.

According to Farmer, there is a “decent photo of a suspect” that is being examined by officers.

Open windows

A male returned to his ransacked car on Sept. 20 in the Adams Avenue Parking Lot after he had left his windows cracked open to keep it cooled down, according to Farmer.

The victim parked his car at 3:45 p.m. and returned at 5:50 p.m. to find his backpack missing, along with three school textbooks, Ray Ban sunglasses and clothing items.

Farmer said all students should keep car windows rolled up since several similar incidents have been reported recently.

Lounging away

A male student reported his backpack had been stolen from the Student Center Lounge on Sept. 20 just after 11:00 a.m.

According to Farmer, the victim left his backpack at a table to visit his friends at a nearby table for around an hour.

When he returned to the area, he could not find the backpack which had contained his laptop, birth certificate and other valuable items, Farmer said.

Phone theft

A male employee’s iPhone was stolen off of a golf cart near the Game On food stand on Sept. 23 near LeBard Stadium.

According to Farmer, the worker had been dropping off some items to the food stand and left his phone unattended at the vehicle.

The employee said when he returned to the golf cart his phone had disappeared, Farmer said.

According to Farmer, the phone is valued at $865 and no suspect could be found on security footage.

Resisting help

Campus Safety received a call at 8 a.m. on Sept. 26 after a male student experienced a seizure at the Literature and Languages Building.

An ambulance was called and paramedics arrived to the student lying on his back and not responding to questions, Farmer said.

According to Farmer, the student awoke to be uncooperative and responded with combative behavior that resulted in paramedics having to hold the student down. The student was placed on a stretcher and taken to Hoag Hospital, Farmer said.
