Theft of anime drawing occurs at library

On Oct. 8 at approximately 9:58 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the R. Barbara Gitenstein Library on a report of theft. Campus Police arrived on the scene two minutes later and met a male individual, who stated that one of his drawings was taken from his cubicle between the hours of 5 p.m. on Oct. 7 and 9 a.m. on Oct. 8. 

According to the individual, the drawing was a colored artist’s rendering of the anime character “Ginsu” done by his father. It has no monetary value.

The drawing was last seen at 5:00 p.m. on Oct. 7. He stated that he noticed the Ginsu drawing was crooked and readjusted it before he left for the evening. When he returned to work the morning of Oct. 8, he noticed the drawing was missing at approximately 9 a.m.

He stated that another one of his drawings in black and white depicting anime characters from “TiGun” was taken in either June or July of this year. However, he couldn’t recall the actual date and time. Campus Police asked if he knew of anyone with whom he worked who may show interest or take the drawings, to which he stated, “No.” 

Campus Police has no further information to report about the case at this time. 

Student reports theft of bicycle

On Oct. 8 at approximately 1:15 p.m., a male individual arrived at Campus Police headquarters to report the theft of his bicycle. He stated that he locked his Jamis Boss Cruiser onto the bicycle rack in front of the Travers and Wolfe Halls Oct. 5 at approximately 5 p.m. 

When he returned to campus on Oct. 7 at approximately 2:30 p.m., he noticed that the bicycle was gone. He stated that he observed a black wire on the ground near the bicycle rack which appeared to have been cut. However, he could not identify it as his bicycle lock. 

He described the bicycle black with aftermarket lights on the handlebar and under the seat. He valued his bicycle at $250. 

He did not have a vehicle identification number for the bicycle at the time, so Campus Police advised him to forward the VIN to the officers if he were to obtain it. Additionally, he was advised to contact Campus Police if he recovered his bicycle. A case number was provided to him for reference. 

Theft of laptop at STEM Building occurs

On Oct. 13 at approximately 2:37 p.m., a female individual went to Campus Police Headquarters to report the theft of her 2016 Silver Macbook Pro. She said she was studying in the STEM Building’s second floor Research and Write-Up Room on Oct. 12 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. 

The individual said that at approximately 5 p.m., she left the study area to help her friends study. She stated the Macbook Pro was left on top of the “circular table” of the room and when she returned at approximately 7 p.m., the computer was missing. 

According to the student, she had exhausted all other attempts to locate the Macbook Pro, and the serial number is unknown. 

Theft of medication in AIMM reported

On Oct. 15 at approximately 11:05 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the AIMM Building to speak with a male individual in reference to his stolen medication. 

Upon arrival, Campus Police met with the individual, who stated that he brought his prescription pills in a pill bottle with him to work on Oct. 14. He took one pill and left two in the bottle on his bookshelf. 

He arrived in his office at approximately 9 a.m., left his office to go home for dinner at 6:30 p.m. and returned to his office at approximately 8 p.m. He left the office for the night at approximately 9 p.m. and returned to work on Oct. 15, when he observed one pill and a half left in his pill bottle. 

He was advised not to take the remaining pill and a half left in the bottle. He informed Campus Police that his new prescription was available. He stated that he wanted to report what occurred in case something else was found missing from his office.
