Crimes against property

at 5:17 p.m. on Oct. 17, retail unit officers monitoring surveillance cameras at Pertusati University Bookstore observed a juvenile pick up several pens and a sweatshirt and conceal them under his clothing. The officers detained the juvenile when he exited the store without paying for the merchandise, and he was taken into custody by DPS officers who responded to the scene. The juvenile was then arrested, cited and released to a guardian.

at 8:25. a.m. on Oct. 17, DPS officers conducting a building check at the Physical Education Building observed that a door to a basement storage closet had been forced open. Several boxes inside the closet had been opened and what appeared to be paycheck stubs were strewn about the interior. It could not be determined if any property had been removed at the time of the report. Facility Management Services personnel were requested to repair the door.

The student agreed and the officers transported her to the center without incident.

at 11:31 a.m. on Oct. 17, DPS officers responded to Stonier Hall at the request of a counselor who reported that a student was in need of an escort to the airport. The officers transported the student to the airport and left him in the company of a relative.

    I’m going to connect the stories together and they start to make sense. Girl breaks up with guy and he then gets drunk and drops a stinky on bench outside Tutor. His bro finds him takes him back to the frat house where they steal another bro’s flat screen and take it back to his Gateway apartment. Girl finds stinky on bench outside Tutor as sees that he spelled out her name and the word “love”. She instantly wants him back but he won’t respond to texts. Girl cries and DPS finds her and they both carefully transfer the stinky “love” message to piece of cardboard and she takes it home to show her sorority sisters. The guy still thinks he has been dumped so he decides to leave town. DPS drives him to airport (because that’s what they do) and he flys back to BF east coast hometown. She goes to his Gateway apartment and finds his new flat screen and gets mad that he spent money on something other than her. She calls DPS complaining her stomach hurts from the bad $1 Chinese food. The End…
