•  Three males received underage drinking summonses on Saturday, April 25, at 1:50 a.m., according to Campus Police. The three men were attempting to gain access to the rear of Travers Hall by using an ID they had found on the ground. The three were unable to get in. Upon arrival, police smelled alcohol and saw that all three had bloodshot eyes. The boys denied drinking, but after failing a sobriety test, they admitted to drinking beer at the off-campus house of Alpha Chi Rho fraternity. Lions EMS evaluated the boys and they refused further medical attention.

•      A male was attempting to gain entry into the rear of Travers Hall on Saturday, April 25, at 5:30 p.m., Campus Police said. When en route to the call, police found the boy had walked to the rear of Wolfe Hall. He had slurred speech and when asked questions, was confused and corrected himself frequently. According to Campus Police, the boy said he had consumed four to five cups of beer at an off-campus Sigma Pi party. He was summoned with underage consumption of alcohol.

•     An intoxicated student was found in the Spiritual Center’s bathroom at 8:10 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, according to Campus Police. The student had his pants down to his knees and appeared dazed and confused as he swayed from side to side. He had also defecated and urinated on himself. When police asked him how old he is, he mumbled, “I’m 21.” When asked how much he had consumed, the student said he had a little beer. While being evaluated, the male vomited several times. It was later determined that he was actually 18, so he was summoned with underage consumption of alcohol, according to Campus Police.

•   Four students were issued summonses for underage drinking during the Spring Concert on Saturday, April 25:

-At 8:10 p.m., a member of the security team hired for the concert brought a student to police after growing suspicious that she was intoxicated when she did not follow directions that he had given her. The girl had glassy, red eyes and was evaluated at the Lions’ EMS triage area. Because the girl was cooperative and no further medical attention was necessary, she was allowed to stay at the concert, but she decided to return to her dorm room, according to Campus Police.

-At 9 p.m., a student was assessed by Lions’ EMS and admitted to having six shots of vodka in his dorm room.

-At 9:20 p.m., a student was assessed by Lions’ EMS and admitted to having one shot of vodka while at ‘Luau,’ an off-campus party.

-At 10 p.m., a student was evaluated by Lions’ EMS and admitted to having four shots of vodka. The student was transported to Capital Health-Hopewell by Princeton EMS.

•   A swipe card reader and its cover was broken from its holder near Armstrong Hall in Lot 2 on Monday, April 20, sometime between 10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m., according to Campus Police. The reader is still in usable condition, but it will cost an estimated $50 to replace it. There are no witnesses, Campus Police said.

•   Yellow graffiti was found during Lions Day on the west wall of level four of Lot 7 on Sunday, April 26, at 10:45 a.m., Campus Police reported. One of the paintings looked like the letter ‘S,’ while the rest of the markings didn’t appear to say or depict anything in particular. A work order was requested, Campus Police said.

•        A girl had her Tory Burch purse stolen from Eickhoff Dining Hall on Friday, April 24, sometime between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., according to Campus Police reports. The student went to hug a friend she had not seen in a long time, putting her bag down and forgetting it there after she left a short time later. The girl’s friends reported that after she had left, a dining hall employee had asked if the black purse belonged to any of them, and they said no. When the girl returned to look for the small purse, she checked with two managers who told her it was not returned to them or in the safe. The leather bag with a gold emblem is valued at $250, and the bag had $13 in cash in it, as well, according to Campus Police.

•   A male student had his wallet stolen while he was at an event on the Travers/Wolfe Hall Lawn on Sunday, April 26. Before he went into a couple of inflatable play houses at 2:45 p.m., the boy took off his shoes and put his wallet and phone into his shoe. When he returned 15 minutes later, the wallet was missing. The boy checked with the information desk’s lost and found and there was nothing. The brown leather wallet, which was possibly a Docker’s, is valued at $15. Inside was $40 cash, a Visa card that has since been canceled, a debit card that has since been canceled, a driver’s license, an Indian Springs Golf gift card that might not have any money left on it and a $25 gift card, Campus Police said.

•     A purse was taken from the Music Building’s basement hallway sometime between 7:40 p.m. and 7:50 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, according to Campus Police. A woman left her purse and another bag on the floor while she went into the dressing room to help a friend. When she returned, the bags were not there. After searching, she found the second bag in a coat room, but not the purse. The purse is valued at $30. A driver’s license, ATM bank card, a life insurance card, $3 cash and car keys were in the purse, Campus Police said.

•   While at an event in front of Travers and Wolfe Halls, a student had $2,515 worth of items stolen from under a table he was volunteering at on Tuesday, April 28, according to Campus Police. A red and black North Face backpack ($100), a silver Macbook Pro ($2,200), a white JBL Bluetooth speaker box ($125), a Kabbalistic Judaism paperback book ($75) and an Incase black laptop case ($75) were taken sometime between 2 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., Campus Police said.
