Not-So-Suite Life

MONDAY, Oct. 12, 4:15 p.m. — Officers responded to Cascade Hall in Mountainview College for reports of larceny, said Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police. A cash amount of $80 was taken from a 20-year-old male’s room. Investigation found that the door to the common area of the suite was periodically left open. No one reported seeing anyone suspicious around the building. All of the victim’s roommates were interviewed, but none of them remembered seeing anyone suspicious in or around the suite. The case is pending further investigation.


MONDAY, Oct. 12, 4:30 p.m. — A 19-year-old female contacted UPD because a 19-year-old male reportedly stole a Halloween decoration from her door in Marcy Hall, Reilly said. The decoration is a skeleton with a black cloak. She purchased the skeleton at Target for $15. Investigation found that the suspect was seen taking the skeleton and placing it on top of the vending machines on the first floor of the building, then taking it. The suspect then visited a friend in the building. Officers found the friend, who gave them the suspect’s name and phone number. Officers contacted the suspect, who admitted to taking the skeleton and agreed to give it back, which he did a few days later.

Who Steals Conditioner?

But How Many Followers?
