Don't steal parking discs

A quiet week on campus saw only a number of petty crimes this past week.

A television was stolen from a resident's room in Delaware Hall on Mar. 20, said Const. Wendy McGowan of the University Police Department. Missing is a 13" television/VCR combo.

"I'm sure the student would like to have [the] TV back, so any and all information would be helpful," she said.

On Mar. 22, a vehicle was towed from campus after it was discovered the automobile was using a stolen parking disk, McGowan said. Automobile owners found in possession of stolen parking disks are subject to a $250 fine, plus the cost of towing the vehicle.

"We have had people canvassing campus trying to sell these [stolen] disks," she said. "The community needs to understand they must purchase disks from parking services."

Finally, on Mar. 24 at 1:47 p.m., two youths were seen climbing the walls of University College. Officers told the two youths to stop, McGowan said, and let them off with a warning.

On a city-wide scale, London Police scored a major marijuana bust this past week and formally charged a London man in a sexual assault case.

On Mar. 21 members of the London Police Street Drug Unit executed a search warrant at a Beckworth Ave. apartment and found a grow scheme and 140 plants, said Const. Ryan Holland of the London Police.

Charges have now been laid in connection with the arrest of a 49-year-old male for sexually assaulting a young student at a local elementary school, Holland said.

Brian Plum of Conway Dr. has been charged with one count of sexual interference with a person under 14 years of age and one count of sexual assault.
