1. On Sunday, Nov. 4, at 8:20 p.m., a man in a car parked along Wilson Boulevard near Trustee Road told Security officers that he had run out of gas and had given money and a gas can to an individual so they could buy some for him. Officers determined that the man had been found panhandling on University property on two previous occasions.
According to UR Security Investigator Roger Keirsbilck, the man became “somewhat uncooperative” when asked about these previous incidents, but moved his car to Elmwood Avenue. Another car then approached and gave the driver of the first car a gas can. Security identified the owner of the second car as an undergraduate student, who told Security that he had been flagged down by the driver of the first car and asked to get him gas, but was not given any money to do so. The man in the first car was warned about being on University property.
Speeding student apprehended
2. On Sunday, Nov. 4, at 8:07 p.m., a Security supervisor observed a vehicle traveling at excessive speeds southbound on Wilson Boulevard toward Hutchison Road. The supervisor had to brake quickly to avoid the vehicle when it ran through the stop sign onto Wilson Boulevard, Keirsbilck said.
The supervisor then followed the vehicle to Valentine Lot and identified the driver as a student who stated that he did not think he was going too fast and that he had run the stop sign because he was “warming up” his new car. The student was told that a report would be filed.
Student reports laptop theft
3. A student reported that his laptop was missing from a hallway in the Sigma Chi house between the hours of 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 and 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The student told Security that a friend borrowed the laptop and left it on a shelf outside his room when he returned it. He also said that there were several people coming into and out of the house during that time frame and that he was unsure who took it, according to Keirsbilck.
Students flee cab, fail to pay fare
4. Security officers responded to Towers Road to assist a cab driver on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 2 a.m. The cab driver told Security that he had driven six people back to campus who jumped out of the cab upon arrival and ran away.
The cab driver then identified a male undergraduate walking by as one of the students who jumped from the cab. Officers made contact with the undergraduate and a female student who was with him, also an undergraduate. At first they denied having been in the cab, but eventually admitted to the claim and stated that they believed the other students had paid. They then paid the fare and were warned. The cab driver departed the property without further incident.
