A woman at the theatre reported a White Gold Filigree ring was taken from her purse around 4:30 p.m.

The last time the woman saw the ring was 9:30 a.m. the previous day. She placed the ring in a pouch on her purse, along with other jewelry, and placed the purse on a counter in the women’s dressing room upon arriving. The door to the room was unlocked.

She said the ring was the only item taken from the pouch. The ring’s approximate value is $1,600.



Fradulent activity over class refund

A student entered the OU Police Department to report fraudulent activity on his refund money from the university July 22.

The student stated that he dropped a class Jan. 15 and never received a refund from the university.

After contacting Oakland University officials, the student was informed of two direct deposits into a Chase Bank account. The student has never had an account with the bank. Chase Bank stated the account number on the deposit did not exist and there was no account attached to the student’s social security number.


A faculty member from Student Business Services 

presented a signed document approving the deposits, where the student said the signature was not his and he had not seen the document before.

An affidavit of forgery, alteration or missing signature/endorsement was completed through Comerica Bank.
