At 2:31 p.m. on Feb. 27, officers were notified by a police department in North Carolina that they discovered a threat on Twitter directed at one of the financial aid office workers. The department has an online monitoring service they use, so they felt it necessary to reach out. Officers spoke to the 20-yearold female student who posted the threat, and she admitted to posting the threat and removed the post. This situation is being turned over to Student Conduct Programs for resolution.
At 2:32 p.m. on March 2, officers received a call regarding stolen property from an apartment in University Village. Officers made contact with a 19-yearold and two 20-year-old students who said that multiple video game accessories and consoles had been taken. They also noticed steaks missing from their fridge. At 3:19 a.m. on March 3, officers were contacted again by a student who stated that someone was standing in their doorway and when they saw them, they closed the door and went into their apartment. The subject walked out from behind their apartment and then proceeded to go into the apartment next door to theirs. Nothing was missing from their apartment. Officers made contact with the suspect and found a Nintendo Switch that matched the serial number of the one missing from the first case. They got a search warrant and found a plethora of electronic items in the apartment. They arrested a 21-year-old male non-student who was staying at his girlfriend’s apartment while she was working down state. Since he was arrested, more reports have been made for items that are missing matching the descriptions of items found in the apartment.
At 3:27 a.m. on March 1, officers observed a vehicle driving through snow hills in F-Lot. Once the vehicle went back out onto Pierce Road, officers stopped the vehicle. Upon approaching the car, they could smell intoxicants coming from the driver. They performed sobriety tests and a breathalyzer for the 21-year-old male student, which he failed, and he was arrested for driving under the influence.
