SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1:49 a.m. — A building guard in the Library Tower reported to University police that someone had used black spray paint to tag a 6×6-foot area at the north entrance of the building, said Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police. Officers reported to the area, but they did not identify anyone who could have done the graffiti. The building’s cleaning staff was notified, and the case is still under investigation.
SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 4:34 a.m. — The resident director of College-in-the-Woods’ Oneida Hall reported to University police that there was a group of students being loud outside the building, Reilly said. There had also been a sound of glass breaking, and when officers reported on the scene they found that the window of the first floor lounge was broken. A number of students were interviewed, but they said they had not heard or seen anything, and it did not seem that the students who had caused the noise were in the area. Building maintenance was called, and the case is still under investigation.
THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 4:20 p.m. — Officers on patrol were called to the Hinman Dining Hall after a 22-year-old male who was not authorized to be on campus was found by the building’s C-Store, Reilly said. The officers approached the suspect and asked him if he knew he wasn’t supposed to be on campus. The suspect said that he did know that, but he had to return an item to a person on campus. The suspect was arrested and processed for criminal trespassing. Upon his arrest the suspect requested that the case not be included in Police Watch.
THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 10:16 p.m. — Officers on patrol were called to the Library Tower after the same suspect was seen in Jazzman’s Cafe, Reilly said. Officers approached the suspect, who attempted to flee upon seeing them. His exit was blocked by other officers, and the suspect was arrested again for criminal trespassing. The suspect was taken to Vestal Town Court, where the judge remanded him to Broome County Jail, where a $3,000 cash bail was set.
FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 11:40 a.m. — A 19-year-old male student reported to University police that his bike had been stolen from Newing College’s Delaware Hall, Reilly said. The student had brought his bike back to the building at 1:10 that morning, but he did not lock the bike, and when he returned at 10:20 a.m. he found that the bike was gone. The bike was valued at $400 and had a gold bar on the handlebars. This is the second time the bike has been stolen, and the case is still under investigation.
