Suspicious Circumstances

On Oct. 6, there was a truck in the Dee Event Center parking lot. The two occupants appeared to be slumped over and not moving. The officer drove up to the vehicle and could see a male and female kissing. The officer checked on them to make sure there were no issues.

Fire Alarms

Officers responded to an open hydrant call on Oct. 6. The open hydrant was being tested in the A-11 parking lot. Facilities management confirmed they were testing systems and the officers let the fire unit who showed up know the hydrant was being tested.

A fire alarm went off at Wildcat Village on Oct. 6. Officers responded and evacuated the building and fire cleared the building. The incident was reported to the alarm company as a possible faulty alarm.

On Oct. 4, a fire alarm went off in the Student Services building, and the police were contacted by Mountain Alarm. The police contacted the Fire Marshall, but when officers arrived there was no sign of smoke. It was determined there was an issue with the fire alarm.

Noise Disturbances

Two residents called in three noise complaints from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 at University Village. Both of these noise complainants were about the same room. The complaints were documented, and the tenants of the room were talked to. The callers were referred to housing if the problem continued.

Vehicle Pursuit

An officer attempted to make a typical traffic stop on a vehicle on Oct. 1. The vehicle pulled over, and when the officer used his spotlight the vehicle sped away. The officer pursued the vehicle for several blocks before the driver abandoned his vehicle and ran through backyards. K-9 units were brought in to search for the suspect; they were unable to locate him. The next day, the driver turned himself in at the Kiesel Jail Facility, and was charged with possession of marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia along with traffic violations.
