‘Missing’ student found in class
A concerned mother called UPD April 8 to report her daughter missing from her residence at The Village at Centennial Square. Officers then conducted a search of the campus, and eventually found the missing student sitting in her scheduled class. No additional assistance was needed.
Fourth of July a bit too early
University police responded to a call at approximately 12:30 a.m. April 14 that unidentified subjects were setting off firecrackers near the Mary Ward Hall designated smoking area. Officers searched the area for the perpetrators, but to no avail. They did, however, find the abandoned firecrackers, which they confiscated and noted that they needed to be destroyed.
Dead animal carcass with a note attached
UPD came across an animal carcass with a note attached to it around 8:30 a.m. April 10 in the quad. The officer reported the incident, and members of Environmental Health and Occupational Safety disposed of the carcass. UPD has not responded to further inquiries about the nature of this incident.
