Feeling clammy

A female student reportedly had an allergic reaction to shellfish on April 10 in the Merrimac Way Parking Lot near the Welding Technology building. Campus Safety responded to a request for medical aid and called the Costa Mesa Fire Department to provide medical treatment.

The student was later released to her mother, according to Chief of Campus Safety Jim Rudy.

Medical aid

Campus Safety responded to a need for medical aid near the south side of the Basil H. Peterson Gym on April 13, Rudy said.

A male student was apparently lying on the ground convulsing, so the Costa Mesa Fire Department and paramedics were called and arrived on the scene as the male student was having another seizure.

The student was then transported to the nearest hospital for further treatment, according to Rudy.

Cart commotion

A Campus Safety officer heard a commotion on April 16 at 1:25 a.m. and reportedly walked out to see broken glass from their golf carts and three male subjects running toward Fairview Road.

The officer jumped in a patrol car to search for the three men, but lost sight of them at Fairview Road and Fair Drive.

A total of five Campus Safety golf carts reportedly had their tires slashed or windshields broken, Rudy said.

The Costa Mesa Police Department arrived and a vandalism report was made. The three male suspects weren’t found and there was no security footage.

Pick pocket

A male student reported his wallet stolen on April 18 near the Mathematics, Business and Computing Center, Rudy said.

The student was sitting at the computers when he reportedly pulled out his wallet to give money to a friend and then put his wallet in his back pocket.

He reportedly went to the restroom and when he returned and checked his back pocket his wallet was allegedly gone.

The student ran to check if his wallet was still in the restroom and it was not. There are no suspects and how much cash was lost is unknown, Rudy said.

Window grab

A male student parked his Mini Cooper in the Arts Center Parking Lot on April 19, locked his car but reportedly left the passenger seat window down a third of the way, Rudy said.

Upon his return at 2:45 p.m., someone had allegedly entered and taken his laptop from the back seat.

The laptop was valued at $1,400. There are no suspects.

Fake news

Campus Safety responded to a vandalism to the Press Box of the OCC football stadium Saturday at 9:40 a.m., Rudy said.

The unknown subject or subjects reportedly kicked and or punched holes in the new dry wall.

The Costa Mesa Police Department arrived and took a report.
