Police Files Nov. 20

Stolen property in P 17 

OUPD was dispatched to P 17 Nov. 11 at 4:15 p.m.  

A university worker had called the campus police because he believed someone had stolen the housing for the blinker light on his van.

The university worker had been parked in P 17 from 7:55 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.  When he returned to his van he noticed the housing was gone on the passenger side.

OUPD discovered scratches in the paint, but could not uncover fingerprints. 

Officers later reviewed the security camera’s feed. They did not see anyone approach the front passenger side of the van but the owner.

OUPD closed the case because there was not an incident.


Female cited for alcohol use

Campus police responded to a complaint of intoxicated people at Hill House Nov. 13 at 1:30 a.m.  

A Nightwatch worker, who called OUPD, said one female and two males signed in as visitors and appeared to be under the influence.

Officers went to the dorm that the visitors signed into and heard several people talking about moonshine and doing shots.

After knocking, officers were let into the dorm room.  There were five people in the room: two males over 21 and three females under 21.  Two of the women were drinking.  One had a blood alcohol level of .01, while the other was .19

They offered consent to OUPD to search the room, where they discovered cherry-flavored moonshine.

OUPD issued two citations for minor in possession.  After checking the database, officers learned that the woman with the highest blood alcohol level had four outstanding warrants for minor in possession.  

The other agencies were contacted and they advised OU officers to warn the woman about her warrants then release her.
