Drug busted

Campus Safety officers responded to a report of a male subject on the floor of a restroom in the Allied Health building around 12:20 p.m. on Oct. 4, Rudy said.

After contacting the individual, Campus Safety officers suspected the non-student was under the influence of drugs and detained him. Responding officers from the Costa Mesa Police Department found the male to be in possession of drug paraphernalia and under the influence of an opiate substance, and arrested him.

Boat burglary

Campus Safety officers noticed a gate ajar with the lock missing at the boat yard near the Coast Community College District offices around 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 5, Rudy said.

Shaken up

According to Rudy, a male student suffered an epileptic seizure during a class in the Allied Health building on Oct. 7 at 8:50 a.m.

After about 10 minutes, the student seemed to have recovered and was joined by his father. The father, who refused treatment on-site, said his son had a long history of seizures and indicated they would seek treatment on their own.

Skater down

A male student was reported injured on the ground near the Student Health Center at 8:33 a.m. on Oct. 8, said Rudy.

After finding a motorized skateboard nearby, officers determined he fell while riding. The student was transported to Hoag Hospital to treat injuries to his face, shoulder and knee.
