In under four hours between the night of Oct. 29 and the morning of Oct. 30, there was a case of larceny at the Melville Library, followed by another at the Campus Recreation Center. In the former, a student’s ID, phone, debit card, and a phone case were stolen. In the latter, money was taken from a wallet. There is no known connection between the two events, and both cases remain open.
Two students out of a group of three were referred for disorderly conduct just before 3:45 a.m. on Oct. 30 after yelling obscenities outside Lauterbur College.
Just before 4:00 p.m. the same day, a patient from the university hospital reported to the police that someone had stolen $2,500.00 from them. The case is still under investigation, and it is not certain if the crime occurred on the Stony Brook University campus or not.
Before 1:00 a.m. on Oct. 31, a female was arrested for disorderly conduct at the university hospital. According to the university Police Department, she was being discharged, and began “cursing in public causing disturbance” due to wanting medication that she had not been prescribed.
Later that day, graffiti was found etched in to a window in Baruch College. It is unknown when the graffiti was made, or what the meaning of the word “MESRA” is, other than potentially a tag. The case remains open.
