August 16 - Hot Dog

Police came to the rescue of a dog left in a car around midday at Emigrant Court. Officers told the owner to give the pup some fresh air, but were called again when the dog was still in the car. This time the police called a tow truck to open the door, at which point the owner obliged and let the doggo free.


August 17 - Mailbox Break Ins

Two reports of attempted mailbox theft occurred at two separate apartment buildings in the University Villages area. A suspect battered a mailbox unit in Columbo Court, though nothing appeared to be stolen. UMPD reported another mailbox was pried open as early as Aug. 10, but the resident who used the box said their mail was being forwarded to another location. Lt. Giffin noted the crime was likely done by the same person, but there is no way to be completely sure. “Mailbox break-ins is definitely a trend that is starting,” said Giffin. “We at UMPD are going to keep an eye on it.”


August 19 - Where's the Weed?

A student reported the noxious odor of mairjuana in Craig Hall to UMPD late Wednesday night. When officers responded, they noticed the smell of dry marijuana. When the student who stank up the place was confronted, he said he only smoked it outside, and did not have any paraphernalia on him. He allowed officers to search the room. After finding no greenery, and no proof the student had smoked any substances, UMPD gave him a warning.
