Midnight Dumbness

Those aren’t glasses. On Oct. 9 at 11:30 p.m., Public Safety was approached by a male staff member who stated that he discovered a plastic bag in the bleachers after Midnight MAACness. The bag contained a wallet and an eyeglass case that smelled of suspected marijuana. Public Safety discovered that inside the eyeglass case was a small plastic bag containing marijuana alongside an electronic smoking device and other items. The wallet contained the owner’s driver’s license. The suspect, who was an event worker and not a student, returned to the scene and asked Public Safety if they found a wallet. The police on scene confirmed they did find a wallet and further asked the suspect if he was missing anything else. The suspect admitted to owning the plastic bag of items and was arrested for possession of marijuana. He has been made Persona Non Grata.

Fast Feet

She made a run for it. On Oct. 10 at 2:23 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Olson Hall for a theft. Upon arrival, they met with two victims who stated that around 1 a.m. an unknown female had taken their white dry-erase board and fled the building using the main entrance. One of the victims stated that she attempted to follow the female, but lost her when she exited the building. The whiteboard was approximately 8 inches by 11 inches and had a value of $10 to $15. If anyone has any information, contact Public Safety at (609) 896-5029.

More Midnight Dumbness

She lost it in more ways than one. While working the Midnight MAACness event, at 10:35 p.m., Public Safety became aware of a report of an alcohol violation. An unidentified student approached officers to alert them of a female student in the student section of the bleachers who was under the influence. Public Safety found the student who acknowledged that she had become sick. The student was under the legal age, but she was able to converse with the officers. She admitted to consuming alcoholic beverages prior to the event. She was escorted out and was transported to a nearby hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

Despite the incidents, Public Safety would like to thank everyone who put in the hard work to make Midnight MAACness a success and all the students who were cooperative.
