1. On Thursday, April 19 at 12:46 p.m., a staff member reported that her lunch had been stolen from the second floor kitchen area of the Miller Center at the Eastman School of Music.

According to UR Security Investigator Daniel Lafferty, following the original incident, on Monday, April 23, Security officers responded to the Miller Center after an unknown individual was reported to be in the facility. Staff members recognized the individual as the same one who had been in the area on April 19 around the same time that the staff member reported herĀ  lunch as stolen. The individual was identified as a 16 year old with no affiliation to the University who claimed to be from Buffalo.

The teenager was then verbally abusive toward Security officers and jumped over a large planter in the lobby to get away from them after they told her that the police were on their way to verify her identity. The adolescent, who was issued a ban form and warned to stay off University property prior to running away, caused minor damage to the planter but departed the premises without further incident.
