Destruction of property in P-3

OU police received contact for damage to property at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 21.

A student arrived at the station to report damage to his car.  The tire’s sidewalls were cut, and there were four cuts in total.

The student was parked in P-3 for 15 minutes. When he returned to his car and drove out of the parking lot, he noticed the steering was odd.  He told OUPD that he was on campus all day but noticed the steering problems after parking in P-3.

OU police are continuing the investigation.


 Theft at Meadow Brook Hall

OUPD responded to a theft at Meadow Brook Hall Aug. 22 at 11:47 p.m.

A woman had said she was attending an event from 7:00 to 9:45 p.m.  She said she had left her iPhone 3 at her table to dance with her husband.  They left and she forgot to pick up her phone, only to realize later she had left it.

The woman was able to track her phone with an app on her computer.  The app located her phone on Livernois between South Boulevard and 18 Mile Road. 

OU police officers checked with personnel at Meadow Brook Hall to see it it was turned in, but it was not.  They also contacted the Troy Police Department dispatch.  OUPD was informed, however, that a squad car could not be sent because the area was large.

The investigation is pending.
