1. On March 29 at 10:59 a.m., a Department of Public Safety (DPS) officer on patrol in Riverview Building B found several doors and other areas that had had eggs smashed on them. The officer found the interior of the elevator, the 4th floor laundry room door, two other doors and carpeting on the 4th floor with eggs smashed on them. No one was seen in the area, and an exact time for the incident could not be determined. The area needed to be cleaned, but there was no damage from the eggs.
False identities at Hillside Market
2. On two separate incidents, DPS responded to reports of students attempting to use another student’s ID to purchase food at Hillside Market. The first was on Sunday, March 29 at 9:00 p.m. A student was stopped by staff when they realized the student was in possession of another student’s ID and was trying to make a purchase. Staff confiscated the ID that the student was trying to use. The student was uncooperative with staff and DPS officers and did not identify themself. DPS was able to track down the owner of the ID and the person trying to use it. The owner stated that they gave their card to the other student to use. Both parties were advised that that could not be done, and the ID was returned to the owner. The second incident was on Monday, March 30 at 2:53 a.m. Again, a student was trying to use another student’s ID. DPS was able to speak to both parties and the ID’s owner stated that they did give their ID to the other student to buy food. Both of these students were also warned against doing this.
Students should not give their IDs to others to use, as staff does not know if the person has the ID with proper authorization. Staff will deny the purchase and confiscate the ID.

Residents of the building stated they found the smoke machine and wanted to see if it worked. The area was clear of smoke, and the alarm was reset. The group was warned about using smoke machines in the buildings.
