Union and Chill

TUESDAY, Oct. 20, 1:22 a.m. — Officers responded to the University Union West after a report of two people allegedly having sex in a room, Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police said. A cleaner saw them in the room and contacted UPD. Officers arrived and tried opening the door, which was locked. They observed a nude rear end of one of the suspects through the window. When they got it open, they saw a 23-year-old male and a 20-year-old female get up from a couch and pull their pants up. They were identified as commuter students and were asked how they got into the building. They said that they were there since 9 p.m. and that they saw the person in charge of the room left the door propped open since it required a keycard to enter and they went into the room. When asked what they were doing in the room, the male said that they were just cuddling. The officers took the female outside and asked if she gave the male consent, and she said yes. The male kept insisting that they were only cuddling in the room. The suspects were told that the building was closed and that they had no permission to be in it and they were asked to leave. The suspects were also told that it is wrong to have sex in a public place. The case was referred to University Judicial.

Highway Robbery

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 21, 1:04 p.m. — Officers reported to Lot C for reports of a vehicle with a stolen license plate, Reilly said. Parking Services found that the plate in question does not correspond with the vehicle that it was on. Information taken from the registration stickers found that the owner was a 23-year-old male student. The vehicle was booted and its hang tag was removed since it was also found to have been stolen. The suspect contacted UPD when he found the boot on his vehicle and was asked about the license plate. The suspect admitted to stealing the plate when he found it sitting outside of his apartment a few weeks prior. He also admitted to stealing the hang tag from a car with an open window. It was found that the suspect also had a suspended license. The suspect was charged with possession of stolen property, suspended registration and improper plates.

Stealing for Sodexo

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 21, 11:19 p.m. — An 18-year-old male said that his wallet and BU ID were stolen from his backpack while he was in class in Science 2, Reilly said. The victim said that he did not notice anyone tampering with his backpack while he was in class, but when he got back to his room he noticed that his items were missing. The victim saw that someone used his ID for a $3.44 purchase at the Appalachian Dining Hall. Officers engaged in an investigation with Sodexo to find who used the ID. The victim unauthorized his ID card so that no more purchases could be made with it. The case is still under investigation.
