  • On March 12 at approximately 3 a.m., multiple students reported a noise complaint to BUPD regarding individuals near the south doors of University Hall. When officers arrived, they spotted three students by the doors, a male and two females, both females were smoking marijuana. When officers tried to talk to the students, the female students took off running inside, while the male student stayed to talk to BUPD. The male student said that he didn’t know the two females. BUPD was able to find one of the females in University Hall and talked to her. She admitted to smoking marijuana and gave the name of the other female with her. BUPD didn’t find any marijuana paraphernalia by the door. This incident is still under investigation.


  • At approximately 10 a.m. on March 11, a distraught female student flagged down a BUPD officer regarding an unaffiliated male waving a knife around on the 800 block of Bourland Avenue near the St. James Apartment Complex. BUPD was able to locate a male who fit the description near North Richard Allen Drive and approached him. When officers asked about the knife, he admitted to having it in his pocket. When police tried to detain him, he refused and officers called for backup. Once backup arrived, the suspect complied. He was given a notice to appear in court for disorderly conduct.


  • On March 12, a theft was reported to BUPD from residents on the 1600 block of W. Barker Avenue. When officers talked to the residents, a male reported that his bar, bags board and longboard were stolen from his enclosed front porch. When asked about the bar, he told police that it is 8 foot by 4 foot painted blue with a white cross in the center. Additionally, he reported that it would take more than one person to carry it off the premises because of how heavy it is. This incident is still under investigation.


  • On March 13 at 10:43 a.m., BUPD was dispatched for noise complaints to the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity house. When officers arrived, they saw that there were 30 people outside on the front lawn being loud. They talked to the president of the fraternity and gave a verbal warning. At 11:41 a.m., BUPD received another noise complaint concerning the same fraternity. When officers arrived again, they saw that more people were present and officers issued the president a $250 municipal ordinance violation notification fine for noise restrictions.
