Just sitting in the bathroom, lost

Two Oakland University Police Department officers were dispatched to North Hamlin Hall on Sept. 30 at 3:13 a.m. to investigate a MIP complaint. Officers first tried to contact the suspect in their suite, but received no answer. They were flagged down by an individual who showed them text messages from the suspect, saying “I have never thrown up from drinking before” and “I’m fine just literally sitting in the bathroom lost.” This individual was able to grant access into the room, where officers found a young female sitting on her bed and another young female wrapped in blankets. Officers questioned the second female, who was argumentative and at first refusing to answer questions or take a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT). After some conversation, she agreed to answer questions and take a PBT, registering at a .166. She was advised of her results and told to sleep on her side. The scene was cleared without further incident.

Speakers and a bike

An individual came to OUPD on Sept. 27 at 10:35 p.m. to report a stolen speaker. The individual said he was parked at the RAC dock at 10:15 p.m. where he was unloading the speakers. He sat the speaker down while he parked in P17, returning shortly to bring to speaker inside the RAC, where he noticed that both the bike and the speaker were gone. Upon reviewing footage from the area that night, a white female with blond hair and a ponytail is seen picking up the speaker and riding off on the bike with it. Two officers remember watching her riding past them toward Vandenberg Hall with the speaker, but weren’t aware of the incident and did not question her.

Just out of sight

An individual came to the OUPD station to report that two debit cards and a credit card were stolen from her purse. She stated that she ate at Au Bon Pain in the Oakland Center from approximately 11:45 a.m. to 12:35 p.m, where she forgot her purse. She realized it was missing and went back to Au Bon Pain at 5:30 p.m. to retrieve it. It had been turned in and placed behind the counter, but with the cards missing. Upon reviewing camera footage, the individual is seen leaving her purse and shortly after, an employee recovered it and took it out of sight of the camera.
