WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 9:08 p.m. — Officers on patrol pulled over a vehicle on West Drive for not having its headlights on, said Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police. Once the officers approached the vehicle, they noticed some of the five people in the car were lying down in the back seat. The officers detected the faint smell of marijuana and observed an aluminum University sign in the car that showed directions to various parking lots on campus. When the officers asked about the sign the students asked if they could speak among themselves, but after a significant time had passed, the officers told the students they would be arrested for possession of stolen property. The driver was also issued a ticket for driving without headlights.
THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 11:25 a.m. — University Police officers received a report that a vehicle was leaking gas while parked at the Appalachian Dining Hall dock, Reilly said. The officers obtained the name of the owner of the vehicle and informed him about the gas leak, but the student said he didn’t care to move it since he would be late for class. The officers then called the fire department, who cleaned the area and towed the vehicle.
THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 5:07 p.m. — A 21-year-old female student reported to University Police that someone had left a harassing note on her car which was parked in Lot O2, Reilly said. The note read, “I can pee on your car from my window,” and while it did indicate that the room was close, the victim did not know who could have left the note. The victim wanted to file a report with University Police. No other action was taken.
FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 9:44 a.m. — Glenn G. Bartle Library personnel reported to University Police that they had found several burnt items in one of the group study rooms on the fourth floor, Reilly said. There were burnt cups and paper in the room, but no indication of who had been in there. The staff was told to make a round on the floor to make sure that there were no other burnt items. The case is still under investigation.
