Forced entry in apartment
On June 16, OUPD responded to a forced entry report that occurred in the Ann V. Nicholson Student Apartments. Upon arrival, OUPD spoke with two male occupants who stated three male suspects had forced their way into the apartment, which caused damage to the doorknob latch.
According to one of the occupants, there was a loud party occurring in the apartment complex. One occupant said he kept hearing banging noises coming from the front door of his apartment, and as he got up to see what was happening, he heard the front door crash open. The occupant said his roommate’s girlfriend then walked to the apartment where the party was going on and requested that the occupants quiet down. Within three minutes of her return, three intoxicated male suspects came through their closed door, according to the occupant.
The occupant said one of the suspects appeared as if he had been pushed through the door. The matter was turned over to the Dean of Students and none of the occupants want to prosecute.
Larceny at construction site
On June 29, OUPD met with two employees in parking lot 18 in regards to a stolen chipping hammer that is valued at $400. The two employees were working on the construction project at O’Dowd Hall.
The employee who owned the hammer said he arrived for work that morning and took out the case containing the hammer from a locker in the secured area of the construction site, and then placed the case on boxes in front of the locker.
The employee left the hammer for approximately one hour and 15 minutes. Upon returning, he noticed it was missing. OUPD reviewed security footage from O’Dowd Hall, and noticed that a truck had pulled up to the site and a male suspect got out. After the suspect looked into the hammer’s case, he unloaded items from the truck and then placed the case containing the hammer in the bed of the truck and drove away. OUPD is currently investigating this case.
