A male resident student who was taking a shower in Ziegler Hall was the victim of a theft.
On Feb. 17, at 3:30 p.m., the student arrived at the Public Safety building to report the incident. He said that prior to taking a shower at 12:30 p.m., he took his watch off and left it on a bench in the bathroom. About ten minutes later, he was drying off in his room and noticed he forgot his watch. He went back to the bathroom and found that his watch was missing.
The estimated value of the watch is $200. Anyone who was in Ziegler Hall during this time frame and has knowledge of the missing watch is encouraged to contact Public Safety at x5029.
Valentine’s Day was not a day of love for all students on campus.
On Feb. 14 at 9:52 p.m., Public Safety was called to Kroner Hall to investigate a verbal altercation. Once in the building, the officers heard a male and female engaged in a dispute. Public Safety knocked on the door and found a male resident student and female visitor in the room. The male resident was shirtless and had noticeable scratches on his neck, chest and arms. Public Safety determined that the male student was the victim in the fight and the female was deemed a persona non grata.
Drug bust part 2
Two students were found in possession of what was suspected to be marijuana and were arrested by the Lawrence Township Police Department (LTPD) on Feb. 13.
Public Safety arrived at Poyda Hall at 9:38 p.m. after receiving a call from a female staff member, who reported suspicious smells in the building. Public Safety was able to narrow down the scent to a room where it seemed to be strongest. The officers asked the two male resident students present in the room if they could search for marijuana. The residents agreed and Public Safety discovered rolling papers and suspected marijuana.
The officers also located a safe in the room containing more suspected marijuana and money. At this time, the LTPD arrived, confiscated the drugs and arrested the students for possession of illegal substances and drug paraphernalia.
Public Safety would like to remind students that smoking illegal substances on campus will result in a loss of housing. Students found smoking marijuana will face both a campus violation and arrest from local police.
