1. On Thursday, Jan. 17, workers at the Hillside Market caught two females fleeing the premises with a stolen jar of pickles, UR Security Investigator Roger Keirsbilck said.

Claiming that they had dropped their receipt, the females told workers that they were not carrying their IDs. When a UR Security officer requested to see their IDs however, the females complied, revealing that they were both undergraduates.
The officer offered the students a chance to buy the pickles, but they “[weren’t] in the mood for them anymore.” No police report was filed.

Suspect shoppers raise alarm

2. On Wednesday, Jan. 16, workers at the University bookstore reported seeing a suspicious male and female enter the shop. According to Keirsbilck, several employees recognized the female as having previously worked at the bookstore.
Shortly after arriving, the couple split, with the male surveying textbooks and the female browsing apparel. When the male later carried several textbooks to the female — still in the apparel section — an employee retrieved the books and said that they would be at the register until the couple was ready to checkout.

The male asked if the books were cheaper elsewhere, but the employee did not know. The couple then exited the bookstore without buying anything. Employees did not report any missing merchandise.

Sisters recover composite after snatch-and-grab

3. On Sunday, Jan. 21, at 2:22 a.m., Security officers responded to Library Road near Fauver Stadium where four males had been seen carrying a sorority composite.
When asked about the composite, the males told officers that they had been visiting a friend in Wilder Tower, Keirsbilck said.

After identifying one of the males as an undergraduate and determining that the other three were not affiliated with the University, officers contacted a sorority representative who said she neither knew the student nor gave him permission to take the composite.

After warning the student and escorting the other three males from the property, officers returned the composite. No charges were pressed.

Unable to determine how much damage was done, the staff member has since filed a police report, Keirsbilck said.
