Last week’s harassment, repeated thefts and mysterious fire extinguisher uses. I’m Kevin Matyi, and this is the Crime Report for Monday Nov. 2, to Sunday Nov. 8, here on Indie Air.
First, it turns out that the police daily crime log had not been fully updated last week.
- On Friday Oct. 30, there were five cases of harassment. In the first four, the victims were female students of Stony Brook University and the cases are being investigated, according to Assistant Chief of Stony Brook University Police Neil Farrell. He also said that in the final case, the victim was a female employee of the university hospital, and that she had “received a threatening phone call from an unknown male stating to be a patient’s boyfriend.”
- On Sunday Nov. 1, police discovered a male residential student at the Circle Road underpass with 82 grams of marijuana. The student was arrested.
For this week’s crime:
- On Monday Nov. 2, minutes before 3:00 a.m., police found two male residential students on a balcony at Eisenhower College of Kelly Quad. One of the students “admitted to smoking marijuana and was referred.”
- A male employee of the hospital reported on Tuesday Nov 3, at 8:00 a.m. that his sweater had been “taken from the hook next to his locker,” and that “an unknown person cut the master combination lock to his locker,” according to Farrell. Farrell added that the crimes took place on separate days.
- In Langmuir College of H Quad, a male residential student reported on Wednesday Nov. 4, that someone had used the fire extinguisher in the kitchen of the college, and then reported the same a second time an hour later when he discovered that the fire extinguisher had been used again.
- A male residential student was arrested in the North Parking Lot at 9:00 p.m. on Thursday Nov. 5, for “unlawful possession of marijuana and criminal possession of a controlled substance,” according to Farrell. The police daily crime log said that the controlled substance was “believed to be DMT,” a hallucinogenic drug.
- A few hours later, at 12:30 a.m. on Friday Nov. 6, a fire alarm in Yang Hall of Roosevelt Quad was set off by students smoking in a dorm room. When a Fire Marshall arrived on scene, they referred all 10 students in the dorm, six male and four female.
- A non-student was found in Melville Library after 7:30 a.m. on Saturday Nov. 7. According to Farrell, the non-student said that “his girlfriend, a residential student, gave him her key so he could access a computer to retrieve information for her.” The daily crime log said that there was “no other criminal activity.”
- A male residential student’s “red-white bike” was reported stolen before 10:00 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 8, at Eisenhower College. The student reportedly said that he had wrapped a bicycle chain around the bike, but had not properly locked it. The case remains open.
