Police Reports: February 19, 2021

  • On Feb. 11, at 11:45 a.m. a female student reported to BUPD that she was receiving non-threatening, harassing text messages from her non-affiliated ex-boyfriend. The student blocked him on all of her social media accounts and when officers attempted to contact the individual by phone, he did not respond. Officers left the suspect a voicemail, telling him not to contact her anymore.


  • At approximately 1 p.m. on Feb. 11, a gas leak in the Kappa Delta Sorority house was reported to BUPD. The house was evacuated and the Peoria Fire Department arrived on the scene and located the leak coming from the boiler. Ameren came to shut off the gas and called a separate company to repair the leak. The boiler was repaired that evening and the house was reoccupied. No injuries were reported.


  • Three students reported a suspicious vehicle that followed them into the loading dock area between University Hall and Williams Hall at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 14. The students told BUPD that they had come from Papa John’s to drop off two of the students that live in University Hall when a vehicle pulled in behind them, blocking them in. After being parked for a while, the vehicle pulled out and drove Southbound. Officers viewed surveillance from N. Duryea Place and W. St. James Street of the suspicious vehicle parked outside of Williams Hall. Upon further investigation, officers found that the plates were from the Chicago area and the driver seemed to have been looking for a place to park and followed the students, thinking that there was a parking garage nearby. BUPD determined that no crime had occurred and reached out to the students involved to let them know.
