Beemer bummer

A $50,000 BMW was reportedly stolen on Jan. 29 at 4:40 p.m. in the Merrimac Way Parking Lot, according to Chief of Campus Safety John Farmer.

The male victim told Campus Safety officers that the car wasn’t where he left it. Officers looked through all the parking lots to make sure but they could not find it.

The Costa Mesa Police Department responded to the scene and met with the student to file a stolen car report.

A follow up investigation will be done by police, Farmer said.

Repeat offender

A reportedly homeless woman, 42, entered the OCC women’s locker room and began yelling in Spanish at everyone in the room at 7:15 a.m. on Jan. 3, Farmer said.

The woman has apparently had multiple trespass warnings since November, including the Jan. 3 occurrence when she yelled at Campus Safety officers and was arrested by the Costa Mesa Police Department.

After her release that day she returned to the OCC Gym Parking Lot then later left walking south on Fairview Road, Farmer said.

As the woman speaks Spanish only, Farmer said a translator asked the woman why she keeps returning to the OCC campus and she apparently said she was looking for work at the OCC Swap Meet.

Medical assist

Campus Safety reportedly received a call from a staff member that someone was having a seizure on Jan. 7 at 3 p.m. on the soccer field.

The victim, a male non-student using OCC’s field through a soccer rental group, was conscious but not alert and vomited a few times before an ambulance arrived.

Paramedics arrived to take over and transported him to Hoag Hospital, Farmer said.

Yelling debate

Two male students were seen engaged in a verbal dispute near the Skills Center around 7 p.m. Thursday, Farmer said.

Surrounding students flagged down Campus Safety officers, who arrived at the scene after one of the students fled. The remaining student told the officer that the other student had a knife.

According to Farmer, the student reportedly said he was scared for his life.

A nearby OCC staff member was able to identify the student who fled. Campus Safety officers will contact the student to further investigate both sides of the story.
