Police Reports: March 12, 2021

  • On March 6 at approximately 1:20 a.m., a male employee reported hearing a noise in the Main Street Parking Deck. The employee found a 19-year-old male student in the bottom level of the parking deck looking in the back of Bradley UTV vehicles. When the employee asked what he was doing, the student responded that he was just looking around. When BUPD arrived, they talked to the student who told them that he was just curious. When asked why he had a spray paint can, he said that he wanted to see if it still worked. Officers let him go with a warning and said not to look in the back of vehicles.

 

  • BUPD pulled over an unaffiliated male for making an illegal left turn at the intersection of the 100 block of N. Western Avenue and the 1400 block of W. Moss Avenue on March 5 at approximately 8:30 p.m. When officers approached the vehicle the male did not have his driver’s license on him but had his Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card. He provided proof of insurance to officers, and while one of the officers ran information on the suspect, he admitted to the other officer that he had a firearm in his vehicle and reached for it. The officer removed the male from his car and searched him. Officers found that the suspect had a loaded firearm underneath the driver’s seat. BUPD educated the suspect that according to Illinois state law, the firearm needed to be cased and unloaded, along with other firearm protocols. The suspect was cooperative with the officers and was released with all warnings.

 

  • On March 8 at approximately 9:40 p.m., BUPD was dispatched to the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity House for a fire alarm that went off. Upon arrival, there was not any visible smoke or fire and residents outside didn’t know what caused the alarm to go off. The Peoria Fire Department determined that it was a false alarm and the residents were able to reenter the building. No injuries were reported.

 

  • BUPD spotted a vehicle without tags or a license plate on the 800 block of N. University St. on March 6 at approximately 10:15 p.m. BUPD pulled the vehicle over, and when officers approached the vehicle, the smell of cannabis was present from the unaffiliated male suspect. When officers asked if he had been smoking cannabis, the suspect admitted to using it. Officers then searched the male and found nothing. However, upon searching his vehicle, they discovered a small purple bag that tested positive for cannabis. Officers confiscated the bag and issued several tickets to the suspect for not having valid registration, a valid license and possessing cannabis while being under the age of 21.
