The following information was taken from incident reports filed by officers at UCAPD. The reports are made available by university police after they are approved by a supervisor. That process takes a few days, which delays our report. This is a complete report of incidents filed for April 4-7.
- Student Hannah N. Oshea, 18, reported at 1:59 p.m. that her black Dell laptop had been stolen from her room in Short Hall. Oshea said it went missing on April 3 between 7 and 10:30 p.m., when her door was unlocked and she wasn’t there.
- Nonstudent Alicia Kay Deavens, 44, reported a hit-and-run in the parking lot west of the Farris Center at 12:45 p.m. Deavens said she was parked and walking away from her car when she heard a collision. She turned around and saw a van had pulled into the adjacent space, and had damaged her passenger side front fender, front door, and mirror. The van’s driver walked away after the collision.
- Student Leslie Michele Hunter, 19, and her boyfriend, nonstudent Jared Scott Cothren, 25, were cited for having marijuana around 1:11 a.m. when an RA in Bernard Hall reported she smelled marijuana in the hallway. The room where the RA smelled the marijuana was empty, but the resident, Hunter, was in the foyer with her boyfriend, Cothren. Cothren had red and bloodshot eyes and wasn’t forthcoming when asked about his identity. The officers asked if they could talk to Hunter in her room, but Cothren told Hunter she shouldn’t go back to the room. Hunter didn’t consent for the officers to enter her room. Hunter said her roommate always had unknown people in the room when she wasn’t there. Cothren was trying to get Hunter to leave. Hunter was told if anything illegal was found in a search, instead of being turned in, the consequences would be more severe. Hunter went into her room and turned over a small amount of marijuana.
- Two juvenile nonstudents were cited for having marijuana at about 3:09 a.m. An officer stopped a car driving on Dave Ward for having its passenger headlight out. While approaching the car, the officer could smell marijuana when he was near the trunk, and the smell strengthened when he met with the driver. Both the driver and passenger had red bloodshot eyes. The driver had trouble answering questions and producing documents, and he said he didn’t have a driver’s license. The officers searched the car and found small pieces of marijuana throughout the car and a digital scale. Both the driver and passenger admitted to smoking marijuana.
