A female resident’s hiding place was revealed last week after she left for Thanksgiving break.
While performing room checks on Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 9:58 p.m., two RAs of Olson Hall said they smelled what they thought to be marijuana. They were able to narrow down the smell to one room. They also noted that the student who occupies the room had left for break earlier that day. Public Safety arrived and proceeded to search the hallway as well, agreeing that the smell was the strongest in front of the female student’s room.
Upon entering the room, Public Safety saw an open desk drawer and three pipes commonly associated with smoking marijuana. However, there was no evidence of suspected illegal paraphernalia. The items were confiscated and the room occupant has been referred to the Office of Community Standards.
Criminal activity resulting in damages of over $500 was reported in Poyda Hall on Sunday, Nov. 20.
At about 1:10 a.m., Public Safety arrived at Poyda Hall after being notified of vandalism that was occurring in the residence hall’s laundry room. Public Safety officers saw that the donation box in the laundry room had been emptied and students’ clothes were thrown all over the floor. Wrapping paper also had been thrown around the room and down the hallway.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Public Safety at x5029.
A male resident student in Ridge House had a rough night’s sleep before awakening unable to breath at 6:49 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
The victim reported to Public Safety that he felt dizzy and was experiencing shortness of breath and a sore throat. Public Safety offered to call an ambulance to escort the victim to the hospital; however, he chose to go with a friend and was treated and released.
