On Saturday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m., four vehicles were broken into on the first floor of the Decker Parking Garage, according to Campus Police.

The first victim to file a report discovered the passenger window to his or her blue Nissan Sentra broken and the detachable face stereo removed but not lifted from the vehicle.

The second victim’s 2007 silver Saab 9-3 also had a broken passenger window, but the victim’s Garmin stereo CD/navigation system was stolen — a value of approximately $1,200, according to Campus Police.

The third victim’s driver’s side window was smashed, while the stereo to his 2006 Nissan Altima was unsuccessfully removed. Finally, the fourth victim’s passenger side window was shattered, and according to Campus Police, the non-functioning factory-installed stereo within the vehicle was stolen, valuing up to $50. Students were notified to make sure their vehicles were secure and that all valuables were hidden from view, Campus Police said.


A Toshiba 10-inch tablet was reported stolen on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 1 p.m., according to Campus Police. A female student had left the tablet alone atop a table on Kendall Hall’s second floor, the student absent for a duration between 12:45 p.m. to 1 p.m. Upon her return, it was missing. According to Campus Police, the tablet was worth about $425.


Campus Police were dispatched to Travers Hall on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 12:30 a.m. on reports of an intoxicated female student. The report was filed by the student’s roommate, who was concerned for her well-being.

According to Campus Police, the two students had been consuming alcoholic beverages such as Razz (raspberry vodka) earlier in the evening, concealed in Poland Spring bottles.

When the suspect’s roommate returned from a trip to the bathroom, she noticed that the suspect had consumed more and become ill, yet neglected to immediately get help for fear of getting in trouble. Campus Police say that the suspect had difficulty sitting up without support, and her speech was both slurred and unintelligible. Ultimately, Lions EMS transported the suspect to Hopewell Medical Center, according to Campus Police.
