Multiple kinds of drugs, fraudulent book receipts and a foot chase in the tunnels. I’m Kevin Matyi, and this is the Crime Report for Monday, Nov. 9, to Sunday, Nov. 15, here on Indie Air.
- At 7 p.m. on Monday Nov. 9, in the Light Engineering Building, a female student reported to police that she was receiving texts from her former boyfriend. Assistant Chief of Stony Brook University Police Neil Farrell said that the texts were non-threatening, and that the student “did not want to press charges.”
- On Tuesday Nov. 10, before 1 a.m., an unknown person called an employee of the University at Irving College of Mendelsohn Quad, saying that “they are holding his wife after her car accident,” and was threatening to kill her, according to the police daily crime log. Farrell said that a welfare check confirmed that the employee’s wife was “safe at home,” and that “they had not been involved in any type of accident.”
- A female employee of the Stony Brook University Hospital rear-ended a commuter student’s car minutes before 3 p.m. at the Hospital on Wednesday Nov. 11. There were no injuries.
- A male employee reported from Melville Library at 3 p.m. on Thursday Nov. 12, that someone “has been cashing fraudulent book buyback receipts,” and that “the case is being investigated,” according to Farrell.
- In the early afternoon of Friday Nov. 13, two male students were referred for smoking marijuana in the South Parking Lot.
- At 9:30 p.m. on Saturday Nov. 14, at Eisenhower College of Kelly Quad, a male residential student was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana and Xanax pills, which were found in his room.
- Six students were apprehended in the tunnel system after 4 a.m. on Sunday Nov. 15. According to Farrell, the students entering the system triggered an alarm, alerting police. When officers arrived on scene, the students ran away, starting a foot chase the police won. The three male students were arrested, while the three female students were referred.
