Alcohol, thefts keep UPD on the move
On Jan. 13, a television was reported stolen from Spencer Hall and has yet to be returned. McGowan said both police and Spencer Hall staff are still following up on the situation.
Similarly, a report of a stolen VCR was made at Sydenham Hall on Jan. 15. McGowan said the UPD has engravers available for students to borrow in order to engrave their names onto their property.
On Jan. 16 at 1:30 a.m., police were asked to check the well-being of a resident at Lambton Hall, who had fallen asleep after putting the phone down to check on food he had placed in the oven. McGowan said the woman he had been speaking to called police when her friend did not return to the phone. "When police arrived smoke had filled the room it was excellent of the person to call police."
At 10:53 a.m. on Jan. 17, the police were called on a request for medical assistance to the Ivey School of Business, where the complainant reported an intoxicated male. The individual, who left the scene with friends, was later the subject of a second call to police at 12:30 a.m. when he was reported to be passed out in Alumni Hall.
"An ambulance was called but the individual was sent home by bus," McGowan said.
