Police Reports: September 9, 2022

  • At 7 p.m. on Sept. 5, a vehicle was reported stolen from a parking lot near W. Main Street. The vehicle was initially reported stolen in the afternoon, but East Peoria Police had run the vehicle’s license plate earlier in the morning. BUPD reached out to the department asking why the plate was run. East Peoria PD responded saying that it was a suspect of retail theft at a local Kroger.
  • At 2 p.m. on Sept. 1, a retail theft occurred at the Bradley University Bookstore during a store rush. An employee at the store reported that a display of seven white baseball caps with a Bradley “B” logo on them were stolen while the store was busy. The caps were placed near the front counter at 2 p.m. and by 3 p.m. all of the caps were missing. The hats were valued at $29.98 each.
  • Around 11:26 a.m. on Sept.1, a student reported that they received threatening messages via multiple social media sites from an acquaintance. The student received unwanted messages on the platforms Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok and via text messages. Some of the messages from the acquaintance included “Will kill you crazy” and “I’d rather stomp you.”
  • At an unknown time on Sept. 2, a professor came forward about a former student who had recently been arrested for criminal trespassing. Earlier in the semester, BUPD had dealt with the former student, who had entered the library and lived in their car in the visitor lot for several days. Although BUPD banned the former student from campus, he came back on Sept. 1 and went to Olin Hall to look for a professor. BUPD then arrested the former student for criminal trespassing. The professor came to BUPD and told them that they were one of the student’s professors from around six or seven years ago. The professor told BUPD that the student would occasionally write letters to them, and had sent a rather odd one in 2020. The professor shared the letters due to the recent arrest of the former student.
