Crime blotter

Vanished
A backpack was taken from the Parkway Commons in Smith Memorial Center at about 11:40 a.m. Oct. 20. It was left unattended. Bag and contents were valued at $452.

Thieves broke the rear driver’s side window in a Ford Ranger parked in Parking Structure 3 on the morning of October 22. Missing were a CD player case, 14 CDs and a camera case. The owner valued the loss at $150.

An unsecured bicycle was taken from a bicycle rack at Southwest Broadway and Hall Street about 1 p.m. Oct. 25. The owner did not indicate a value for the loss.

The men’s locker room was victimized by a thief on the morning of Oct. 29 resulting in heavy losses. The owner had a locker basket which was unattended.

The wallet and contents were valued at $1,930. The basket was later found, minus the wallet.


Kick start
Officers were called to the Ondine at 7:40 p.m. Oct. 8 on a report that a man was acting in a violent manner in the lobby. They arrived to find he had kicked out a glass panel in the lobby door.

When he saw officers arriving, he fled on his skateboard. He was followed and stopped at Southwest Sixth Avenue and Hall Street. Charged with criminal mischief and harassment was Jose D. Mazon,23.

He was transported to the Multnomah County Detention Center, where he accumulated additional charges of possession of dangerous drugs and driving under the influence. He was wanted on multiple state warrants for possession of controlled substances.


Envelope, please!The School of Community Health received an envelope they saw as potentially suspicious on the morning of Oct. 25. The envelope was postmarked St. Cloud, Minn., with a return address of Washington, D.C., incorrectly addressed in a poorly-written script.

The envelope was opened in a controlled environment and found to contain an invitation to an event.


Crouching tigress
Crouching in a dark stairwell of the University Services Building parking structure drew the attention of officers to Alicia D. McGinnis,18. The incident occurred at 10:20 p.m. Oct. 25.

McGinnis was smoking a pipe which seemed to be of the narcotics-smoking variety. A consent search turned up several more pipes, syringes, a bottle and a substance believed to be methamphetamine. She was transported to jail.


Bounced again
William Cisneros, 21, failed to get the message when he was trespassed from the campus Nov. 23.

Officers found him again, loitering in the University Services Building parking lot and cited him once more.


Well equipped
Two men were found with complete kits of burglar tools between them when officers stopped them at 3:39 a.m. Oct. 27 at the northwest stairwell of Peter Stott Center.

Christopher Piper, 26, consented to a search, which gave up an 18-inch set of bolt cutters, pliers, a flashlight and a broken spark plug on a string, which is used to break auto windows without making any sound.

Travis Volk, 29, had a screwdriver and one of the spark plug tools. Both were transported to Multnomah County Detention for identification and later released.
