crime blotter

Bench mark

Sleeping on a bench outside Lincoln hall proved fateful for Timothy S. Sizemore, 19. When officers made a welfare check on him at 11 a.m. May 18, they found he had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court on a charge of interfering with a peace officer.

He also had a syringe and drugs on his person, which earned him an additional charge of drug possession and a trip to the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Another sleeper was awakened at 6 p.m. May 24 on the north steps of the Honors Building. A consensual search revealed he had possession of four small baggies of a crystalline substance suspected to be methamphetamine.

The man, Carl R. Thiele, 30, was cited for drug possession and released.

Phone rage

Officers responding to a complaint of a person yelling into a pay phone about 11:30 a.m. May 20 discovered Douglas J. Gaffke, 33, beating on a phone at a phone station adjacent to the campus.

Gaffke was bleeding from the head, apparently from a self-inflicted injury. He was lodged at the detention center on a charge of disorderly conduct, where he could be referred for medical attention. He was also held under a community safety detention, a provision that seeks to prevent individuals from causing Vanished valuables

About 11 a.m. May 20 a bicycle worth $675 was taken where it had been locked near Harder House.

Someone evidently used a key to gain entrance to a lab in Science Building 1 and removed a computer and zip drive worth $1,100. The theft occurred about 7 p.m. May 20.

Court disorder

A basketball game was interrupted by violence at 9 p.m. May 21 in the Peter Stott Center. Following a collision during the game, the victim reported being hit by a male player. Identity of the perpetrator was unknown.

A dispute that apparently started at the Safeway at Southwest 10th Avenue and Jefferson Street spilled over into harassment at a computer lab in Millar Library at 9 a.m. May 22. The victim reported being yelled at and shoved by the unidentified suspect. The victim told officers the perpetrator was a white male with brown hair who worked at the store.

Bottle rockets

CPSO received a report about 1 a.m. May 23 that bottles were being thrown from an eighth-floor window of the Ondine.

Officers located no suspects.
