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 2-3.
- At 7:30 a.m., Bear Hall’s resident master informed police of a Chevrolet Silverado parked in a reserved space north of State Hall. The spot was clearly marked with a tow away sign. Pro Auto towed the vehicle.
- Student Melissa R. Foster, 20, reported at 1:30 p.m. that money had been taken from her wallet. She said on Monday, around 6 p.m., she was studying in McAlister when she left to go get food. She forgot her wallet in her backpack in McAlister, but retrieved it around 8:00 p.m. She noticed on April 2 that all her money, about $60, was taken from the wallet. Foster canceled her credit and debit cards.
- Student Holly Hope Dickson, 20, reported she’d lost her wallet around 7 p.m. Dickson used her wallet in the Student Center, walked to her car north of Wingo Hall, then made it home before noticing her wallet was gone. She searched the area but couldn’t find it. However, around 5:23 p.m. April 3, Dickson found the wallet on the sidewalk near McCastlain Hall with its contents still in it.
- Student Brandon Cory Purcella, 19, was cited for littering and disorderly conduct at 11:45 p.m. when patrolling officers saw him smoking a cigarette and allegedly urinating on a tree. The officers were on the south side of the Kappa Sigma house, where many people were in the backyard, when they saw Purcella walk from behind a tree with a cigarette in his hands. When the officers yelled at Purcella to stop, he kept walking and flicked the cigarette over a fence. After being yelled at a second time, Purcella turned around. The officers noticed a wet spot on his pants and a wet spot on the tree. When questioned, Purcella said he didn’t urinate on the tree, and his pants were wet because he sat in something. Purcella admitted to drinking a couple beers.
