  • At 11 a.m. on Feb. 17, a University Facilities van stopped at a traffic light was hit by a car sliding on ice. BUPD arrived and observed that the facilities van had a dented bumper and the other car had minor damage in the front grill. No citations were issued, and no injuries were reported.


  • A male student parked outside of Harper Hall on Feb. 22 at approximately 2 a.m. witnessed an unaffiliated male attempt to steal a bicycle off of the bike racks. The student called BUPD and told officers that when he honked his car horn at the suspect, he pretended to take something out of his pocket and flipped the student off. Officers located the bike, without any damage, and found the suspect on the other side of Harper Hall on Main Street. When officers asked what he was doing by Harper, the suspect responded that he was eating a sandwich from McDonald’s on one of the benches and that he was not messing with any bike locks. The suspect was then taken into custody by BUPD, and officers found a chisel in his right front pocket. He was issued a notice to appear in court and was banned from Bradley properties.


  • On Feb. 21 at around 11 p.m., a fire alarm for a smoke detector was set off in the basement of Olin Hall. The Peoria Fire Department arrived and found that a light ballast was burnt up and shorted out, triggering the fire alarm. An order was placed to replace the light, and the fire alarm was reset. There was no damage reported.


  • At approximately 7:45 p.m. on Feb. 21, a Hall Director in University Hall found a plastic container with a green leafy substance resembling cannabis. The Hall Director contacted BUPD and told officers that he found it in a room with three students, two of which lived in the room. BUPD tested it and found that the substance tested positive for cannabis. Officers did not issue any citations.
