A bike belonging to a female Orange Coast College student was reportedly stolen at the bike racks located north of the Math, Business and Computing Center between 6:10 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. on March 12, according to Chief of Campus Safety John Farmer.

The bike was worth $1,500 and was secured with a cable lock with a combination, Farmer said.

The site was not in view of any cameras and the suspect is still at large.

Seizure warning

Campus Safety responded to two separate seizure episodes at the Swap Meet in the Adams Avenue Parking Lot on March 25 at 11:10 a.m. and 12:48 p.m., Farmer said.

The first incident involved a male non-student who was found lying unresponsive in the middle of the parking lot aisle with a jacket under his head. The victim was identified and driven to Hoag Hospital in an ambulance.

According to Farmer, two Campus Safety officers were dispatched to investigate a second incident, where they met the female victim accompanied by a female bystander.

She refused medical assistance and said her son was going to take her home.


A female student notified Campus Safety that her car was vandalized in the Adams Avenue Parking Lot while she was in class on March 19.

According to Farmer, the victim arrived on campus around 5:00 p.m. and returned to her car at 7 p.m. When she returned, she noticed the passenger side of her vehicle had been keyed.

No suspects have been found and no one has come forward regarding the incident.

Change of heart

An unknown male suspect reportedly stole and returned three padlocked metal donation boxes from the Orange Coast College Library entrance at 3:00 p.m. on March 22.

A librarian noticed a box was missing and called Campus Safety to report the incident. The suspect allegedly returned the boxes to the library at 3:40 p.m. on the same day, having made minor damages while trying to pry the boxes open, according to Farmer.

Video surveillance of the suspect is being reviewed and there is no further information at this time.
