Suspicious substances confiscated from fraternity

On Oct. 13, UR Security accompanied University Fire Safety Inspectors for a test of the fire annunciator system and search for obvious fire safety violations at the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity house.

According to Director of UR Security Walter Mauldin, when the inspector noticed a suspicious smoke-like smell from the third floor, Security accompanied him to investigate further.

The inspector immediately took note of several fire safety violations including burning candles, cigarettes in an ash tray, a tapestry on the ceiling and a sizable quantity of green leafy substance in a partially opened desk drawer.
The green leafy substance sat next to a grinder, glass smoking apparatus and cigarette papers.

One full bag, a half bag and a half-full gallon-sized jar of the substance was confiscated and turned over to the Rochester Police Department for disposal. No arrests were made. The incident was referred to the Dean of Students Office for further action.

Two students and a visitor transported to Strong

Intoxicated individuals and a visitor were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital in three separate cases on Sunday Oct. 16.

According to Mauldin, UR Security was notified of the first alcohol victim at 12:02 a.m.
Security, Medical Emergency Response Team and an ambulance responded to the report of an intoxicated underage drinker, visiting the Riverview Apartments complex. The individual was a student from Monroe Community College. The underage drinker was transported via ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital Emergency Department.

In a matter of 16 minutes, all response teams were back in action after a 12:18 a.m. report of another intoxicated underage drinker. Security, MERT and an ambulance arrived to the site of another underage student on the lawn near one of the fraternity houses on the Fraternity Quadrangle. The student was also transported to Strong for treatment and evaluation.

At 1:44 a.m., the three teams responded once again to the same location for another underage student on the lawn. The student received the same treatment and joined the other two underage drinkers in Strong attendance.

Due to the nature of the three incidents, the Dean of Students Office was notified of the ordeal.

Graduate students involved
in car crash

Yesterday at 2:13 a.m., three graduate students were involved in a car accident on Kendrick Road.

According to Mauldin, two of the three graduate students, who were riding in a 2006 Honda Accord, were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for precautionary evaluation and treatment after crashing with a non-UR driver in his 2001 Toyota Corolla.

As of Wednesday night, the report had not been completed. However, it has been documented that the driver of the Toyota Corolla was arrested by a Brighton police officer under suspicion of drunk driving.
