A vehicle traveling eastbound on Adams Avenue August 15 reportedly struck the gate of the Recycling Center.

Paramedics arrived on scene and treated the driver who was reported to have minor injuries. The driver was not taken to the hospital.

The Toyota Camry involved in the one-car accident was reported to have major damage done to the front and the hood, according to Interim Chief of Campus Safety Jim Rudy.

Take that

A student reported their car, parked in the Merrimac Way Parking Lot, was dented by what seemed to be a punch or kick to the passenger door. The damage was reported at 10:35 p.m. on the first day of school, Rudy said.

There is no other vehicle known to be involved.

Handlebar heist

A student reported his bike’s handlebar and wires were stolen on Aug. 25, Rudy said.

The victim said that he locked his bike in front of the Literature and Languages building at approximately 12:30 p.m. When he returned around 4:30 p.m., the handlebars were missing.

The estimate cost of the damages is $40.

There is video footage of two male suspects approaching the bike at 2:09 p.m. and leaving shortly after. But, because of trees near the camera causing shadows and shade, Rudy was unable to identify the suspects.

Taken tools

On the morning of Aug. 30, public safety officers responded to a call to the Planetarium construction site, Rudy said.

A construction worker for the new Planetarium reported to Campus Safety that his toolbox was broken into sometime during the night before.

The toolbox was locked, but the suspect was able to pry the box open and reach in with their hands to take approximately $1,000 worth of tools.

Rudy ordered increased patrol around the construction site.
