  • Around 4:30 a.m. on March 12, three individuals unlawfully entered the property of a private residence on North Rebecca Place. It is unknown if the individuals, who appeared to be juveniles, are affiliated with Bradley. After entering the backyard of the residence, one suspect noticed a Ring security camera. They approached the camera and tore it off of the house, disabling it. The individual was wearing a black ski mask and surgical-style rubber gloves. No evidence of an attempted break in or robbery was documented at the scene when the incident was reported to BUPD. An investigation is ongoing.
  • At 4:02 p.m. on March 11, a BUPD officer patrolling a “Peoria RALLY for Palestine” protest near the intersection of West Main Street and North University Avenue observed a protester who matched the description of a suspect in an ongoing investigation. The non-Bradley-affiliated individual was walking westbound on Main Street as the protest was nearing its end. The officer made contact with them at the intersection of Elmwood Avenue in front of Burgess Hall, positively identified and arrested the individual. They were charged with 12 counts of criminal defacement. The individual allegedly placed at least 12 stickers on university property without authorization. After being interviewed at the BUPD station, they were released from custody with a notice to appear in court. 
  • At 10:20 a.m. on March 19, students called BUPD to report a bat flying around in a Bradley Hall stairwell. Animal control arrived around 12 p.m., located the bat and removed it from the building. The bat was not harmed during its removal.
