Crime blotter

Dude where’s my car?

A male student’s black two-door 1996 Mazda Miata was reported stolen from the Merrimac Way Parking Lot on April 21 between 8:15 a.m. and noon.

The victim’s vehicle was described as having bronze wheels, a roll cage, bucket seats and a hard top, according to John Farmer, chief of Campus Safety.

Campus Safety called the Coast Mesa Police Department and the Campus Security authorities searched the parking lot but no vehicle was found.

The cameras in the parking lot were checked but nothing was found, Farmer said.

My iPhone was iStolen

A Watson Hall male employee reportedly had his black iPhone 4 stolen out of his backpack on Wednesday at 4:25 p.m.

The victim said that he was working at the welcome center desk helping students on the computers when he returned to his backpack to discover his i- Phone was missing, Farmer said.

The victim said the phone was worth between $649 to $749, according to John Famer.

Campus Safety reviewed its camera system but nothing was found.

Another male student’s black and gray iPhone with a dark blue case was reported stolen in the Library on the first floor on  Thursday at 12:25 p.m.

The victim said that he was helping another student when he placed his phone by the printers and forgot it there. When he returned to the computers it was gone.

Campus Safety reviewed the cameras but nothing was seen.

The victim said that whoever took his phone shut it off so that he could not track it, Farmer said.

Puff, puff trespass

Campus Safety was called to a verbal disturbance in the area between the Literature and Languages building and the construction site in the Adams Avenue Parking Lot at 9 p.m. on April 22.

A student in a dark hoodie was harassing multiple students, Farmer said.

Officers made contact with the suspect yet he argued and kept walking toward the lot until he entered the Camden apartments and the officers lost visual of the suspect, Farmer said.

Security from the apartment complex identified the suspect as someone who has been sleeping in the apartment stairwells.

On Wednesday the same suspect was arrested for trespassing and possession at 4 a.m. near the north side of the Robert B. Moore Theatre and the Fine Arts building after he tried to gain entry into the theater.

The suspect was searched and found in possession of marijuana and was placed in hand cuffs. The Coast Mesa Police Department was then called, Farmer said.

All matters involving the student have been brought to the dean of students.
