The heat is on
Evacuate the dorm hall. On Jan. 30 at 10:22 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Switlik for a fire alarm. When officers arrived, students had already evacuated, and a strong burn smell was coming from the building. Officers made their way up to the third floor where they found a piece of burned paper taped to a concrete wall. No active fire was present at the time and the fire alarm was reset, signaling it was safe for students to return to the building. No damage to the concrete wall was observed. Anyone who has any information, contact Public Safety at 609-896-5029.
Light pole down
So much snow, so little time. On Jan. 26 at 1:08 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to the turf field parking lot for a motor vehicle accident. Public Safety spoke with a complainant who, while operating a vehicle with a snowplow on it, backed into a light pole and knocked it down. There was damage to the light pole, but none to the truck. No injuries were reported.
The four stooges
Honesty is the best policy. On Jan. 25 at 12:01 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Kroner for a suspected odor of marijuana. Officers knocked on the door and asked the four individuals about the odor. They admitted to smoking and brought forward the pipe. In a consented search of the room, officers found a clear bag with possible marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside. Public Safety notified the local police and placed the four students under arrest. They are being charged with unauthorized possession and use of illegal substances and drug paraphernalia.
