SUNDAY, JAN. 30, 2:35 a.m. — A 36-year-old male cab driver dropping students off from Downtown told officers on patrol that he was being harassed by three male students, according to Investigator Dennis P. Bush of Binghamton’s New York State University Police. After dropping the students off at Dickinson Community’s Digman Hall, the cab driver said the students threw their money at him as they left his cab, and he told officers that they were disrespectful to him. When asked whether the money hurt him, he said no. The officers warned the students to not throw their money at cab drivers anymore.
MONDAY, JAN. 31, 2:28 p.m. — A 19-year-old female student told officers that she and her sister were being harassed by their old roommate, a 22-year-old female, after having received several threatening e-mails from the girl, Bush said. The three girls had all been living in an apartment last year, but the sister had an altercation with the suspect. According to Bush, the suspect has a history of the accused behavior. A report was put on file, but the victims felt that they were not actually in any harm, so no action was taken.
MONDAY, JAN. 31, 9:13 p.m. — Officers on patrol reported to Newing College’s Delaware Hall after a resident assistant found an 18-year-old female student’s purse in one of the building’s stairwells, Bush said. The victim lost the bag after coming back Saturday night from a party, but she hadn’t been sure if she had lost it at the party or in the cab on the way home. When the bag was returned to her, she found her phone and camera broken and $7 missing from her wallet. The suspect is unknown and the case is still pending investigation.
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 2, 12:38 a.m. — Officers on patrol saw two male students urinating in a snowbank near the entrance of Lot Q-1 near College-in-the-Woods, Bush said. The officers approached the suspects, who both seemed intoxicated, and questioned them for some time. One of the suspects was found to have the other’s driver’s license, and the other was found to be carrying a chapstick-like vial labeled “medical marijuana.” The officers discovered a green leafy substance in the vial, which they field tested. The substance turned out to be .1 ounce of marijuana. An arrest was made and charges of disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of marijuana were filed.
