Don’t do drugs, kids. On April 5 at 12:09 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Wright Hall on the report of a medical emergency. Upon arrival, officers spoke with two staff members who said a student admitted to them that she had smoked marijuana and was experiencing a reaction. Public Safety accompanied the student to her room to retrieve her student ID, only to find drug paraphernalia in her room in plain sight. Permission to search the rest of her room was granted, and they found suspected marijuana. An ambulance arrived to take the student to a local hospital for her reaction, and police showed up later to collect the suspected marijuana. At this time, no police charges have been filed. However, the university has recommended she be charged with unauthorized possession and/or use of harmful and/or illegal substances.
Without a sign, how will anyone find a way out? While conducting a Park, Walk and Talk at Poyda Hall, Public Safety observed someone had vandalized an exit sign in the hallway. Officers checked the area for suspects or witnesses, but had no luck. A work order has been submitted to facilities. Public Safety asks that anyone with further information contact them. Public Safety also wanted to remind students that it is a serious violation of the student code of conduct to tamper with emergency equipment.
It’s kind of like when someone has a bruised leg and doesn’t know how it happened. On April 2 at 4:13 p.m., a Public Safety officer noticed damage to the driver’s side undercarriage of his patrol vehicle while inspecting it at the beginning of his shift. No further damage was discovered, and no one knows how or when the damage got there. Public Safety is looking into the matter further.
