UPD's X-Files

Campus police have been busy with more peculiar things recently occurring on campus.

Const. Wendy McGowan reported police were called to the scene of an alleged fight Friday behind MacIntosh Gallery but they did not locate the suspects. They had the same kind of luck when called to J.W. Little Stadium Saturday during the Yates Cup football game when a streaker was spotted running across the field. McGowan said due to the crowds, police failed to locate him.

A male who passed out outside the Wave Saturday night was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place. After being placed in a police car, he was later charged with mischief for kicking out the rear window of the cruiser, McGowan said.

There were two reported cases of breaking and entering on campus over the weekend – one at the Copy Centre in the Social Science Centre and one at Travel Cuts in the University Community Centre. McGowan urges anyone with information on either occurrence to contact the University Police Department or London's Crime Stoppers.

Police responded to a report of a female who drove her car into a wall at Althouse College yesterday. McGowan said the driver was taken to hospital but later released and there was $2,000 damage to the car, but none to the wall.
