Duffle shuffle

A 2017 Honda Civic was reportedly broken into in the Art Center Parking Lot on March 13 at 7:30 p.m. The front passenger’s window was shattered and the victim’s black duffle bag stolen, according to Chief of Campus Safety John Farmer.

Campus Safety checked surveillance video and saw a black SUV lingering by the car and a male suspect approaching the passenger’s side.

According to Farmer, because of the distance and placement of the car, the suspect’s face couldn’t be seen and there was no footage of him breaking the window.

Further investigation will be done by the Costa Mesa Police Department.

Scooter scuffle

A Campus Safety officer was called to the Swap Meet on Sunday about 7:30 a.m. about two non-student vendors verbally arguing over a scooter.

There was apparently confusion over where the scooter came from and who owned it.

After threats were made, Swap Meet staff made a supplemental report because the incident involved two vendors, Farmer said.

Sink sunk

A sink was found broken off the wall in a men’s Social Science restroom during Orange Coast College’s Senior Day last week after a staff member called Campus Safety, Farmer said.

The staff member reported hearing two men making noise in the restroom and claimed they were jumping on the sink, he added.

She reported confronting them when they came out of the restroom, but the suspects quickly left.

Campus Safety viewed video footage and did see to two men coming out of the restroom, but were not able to identify them.

Maintenance will get a cost to replace the sink.

Scratch off

A male student reported a scratch on his 2017 Chevy Silverado parked in the Gym Parking Lot.

The victim noticed a 25-inch long scratch on the side of his car on Thursday around 1 p.m.

According to Farmer, there is video footage of the car but no-one is seen causing the damage.
