November 17

Car Theft
Parking Structure One
About 3:30 p.m. a student reported to Officer David Baker that her car had been broken into between 12:40 p.m. and 3:10 p.m. The student had a Lenova laptop, calculus textbook, graphing calculator and Macbook Air stolen. Total damage in loss totaled near $3,000.

Harrison Street Building
Non-student James Smith, who had already been given verbal warnings three separate times in the last month, was arrested by Officer Denae Murphy and Officer Baker at approximately 3:55 p.m. Smith has a history of assault within the Portland Police Department and was in possession of a serrated knife and a large screwdriver. He was cited for Criminal Trespass II.

Indecent Exposure
Lincoln Hall
Around 1:38 p.m. officers responded to reports of a male hiding inside of the third floor women’s restroom. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a registered sex offender, only identified as McNeil, masturbating under a coat. After clearing students from the bathroom, officers confronted McNeil who then opened his coat and exposed his erect penis to the officers. After violently resisting arrest, officers called a Code 3. They discovered he was on probation for a felony and his parole officer had reported him as a person of interest in a sexual assault that had occurred earlier in the day. He was arrested and charged with burglary and sexual abuse.

Around 11:40 a.m. Officer Jon Buck responded to a student’s report that she had found her car with the rear passenger side window broken out. She reported that her belongings had been shifted around, but that nothing appeared to have been stolen—including a GPS mounted to the front windshield.

Medical Assist
Smith Memorial Student Union
Around 3:50 p.m. officers arrived at the building and found both fire and medical officials on site. Officers discovered a 90-year-old student had collapsed during a history lecture.

November 20

Smith Memorial Student Union
Officer Shawn McKenzie responded to a report of new graffiti in the first floor men’s restroom at approximately 8 a.m. The officer noted that one example read “peeland” and looked similar to past graffiti that read “poobz.”

Disorderly Conduct
Smith Memorial Student Union
At approximately 2:43 p.m. Officer McKenzie was dispatched to a call of a fire alarm. Someone had pulled the fire alarm on the first floor near the west entrance, though there was no fire inside the building. The case was closed due to lack of investigative leads.

November 23

Possession of Marijuana
Ondine Housing
Officers twice responded to reports of marijuana. The reports were filed against the same room in both instances. First, officers responded alone and the students denied using or obtaining marijuana. The second, officers responded with two Resident Assistants who conducted a consented search by one of the students. Eventually, one of the students became cooperative and handed over a glass oil rig.
