Stained reputation

MONDAY, Sept. 7, 2:50 p.m. — An 18-year-old male contacted UPD after his name tag on the door to his room in Mohawk Hall in College-in-the-Woods was vandalized, said Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police. The victim said that someone wrote a derogatory term on his mustard-bottle-shaped name tag. All of the residents in his suite were questioned and none of them knew anything about the situation. When questioned, the victim said that he could not identify who the suspect was. The victim said that the term did not really offend him but it could offend a large population of the campus and that the behavior should not be tolerated. The victim declined criminal prosecution.

Cracking Good Time

TUESDAY, Sept. 8, 7:48 a.m. — Cleaners in Delaware Hall in Newing College called UPD to report that an unknown suspect damaged a window, Reilly said. The window is located in the third-floor lounge. Since the window was protected by a wire mesh, it did not break into pieces, but only splintered. A work order was put in to fix the window. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

What a Dumbass

THURSDAY, Sept. 10, 10:50 a.m. — Officers on Glenn G. Bartle Drive noticed a vehicle without its headlights on, Reilly said. The officers performed a routine traffic stop and approached the vehicle. When the window opened, they noticed the smell of marijuana and alcohol emanating from the vehicle. The driver was asked to exit the vehicle. Due to the strong smell of marijuana, the officers searched the vehicle. The 19-year-old male driver became unruly and questioned why the officers were searching his vehicle. The officers found 11 grams of marijuana as well as marijuana-related paraphernalia and fireworks. The officers conducted a standard field sobriety test, which the suspect performed poorly on. The suspect refused to perform a breath test. The suspect was arrested and charged with DWI, unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of fireworks. The suspect began mouthing off at the officers and was then charged with disorderly conduct as well. The suspect was given an appearance ticket returnable to Vestal Town Court.

Ridin’ Dirty

THURSDAY, Sept. 10, 1:22 a.m. — UPD was contacted by a 34-year-old male who reported his bike stolen, Reilly said. The victim said that he parked his bike at the College-in-the-Woods Dining Hall earlier in the day. He passed by the bike multiple times during the day and saw that it was still there. He went to the bike’s location later in the night and noticed that it was gone. The bike is black with gray lettering on it. The victim chose criminal prosecution. The case is still under investigation.
