On Tuesday, Feb. 4, police were dispatched to New Residence hall at 8:45 a.m. on reports of graffiti on the first and third floors, according to Campus Police. Scrawled in black magic marker, a hallway wall on the first floor read “BOMB SQUAD MOTHER FUCKERS” in all capital letters. Upon reaching the third floor, police found “BEST FRIEND” written in blue magic marker with an arrow drawn around the corner and pointing to the room of a resident. Campus Police said there was an additional uncapitalized “Best friend” on the door in question. When the residents were asked about the writing, both stated they had been home for the weekend and only discovered the writing on Sunday night. Additionally, their original black marker hanging on the door was replaced with a blue one, according to Campus Police. The scribbling suspects remain at large.

A Travers resident was treated by Lions EMS after becoming ill on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 2 a.m. According to Campus Police, the female reportedly vomited in both the first floor women’s room and subsequently the third, being assisted back to her room by a friend. Police observed the student as she lay in bed, said Campus Police, and she admitted to consuming about five or six shots of vodka earlier that evening.

On Sunday, Feb. 9, at 12:10 a.m., Campus Police responded to a noise and potential drug complaint from students on Wolfe 9. Students irritated by excessive noise knocked on the room in question, believing they also smelt a strong odor of marijuana, according to Campus Police. After approximately 10 minutes, Campus Police were called — according to Campus Police, no drug-related smell was observable, but upon entering the room, police noticed several shot glasses and peach Schnapps. All occupants denied involvement with marijuana. When the room’s owner eventually returned from the restroom, he claimed ownership for the alcohol and received the proper summons, Campus Police said.

A victim reported a stolen bicycle on Thursday, Feb. 6, at 12 p.m, according to Campus Police. The student said she left her Great Mountain bike locked to the bicycle rack outside Phelps hall before she left for winter break — over a month ago on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Upon her return, it was missing. The bike is valued at approximately $500, Campus Police said.
