Police briefs are written according to reports from University Police. These indicate preliminary descriptions of events and not necessarily actual incidents.
Warrent for Arrest
• Officers were looking for a resident from Living Center South on Thursday, April 8, because a warrant exists for his arrest. The student had failed to register as a sex offender but has not been seen on campus since Feb. 7.
• A 25-year-old student came to pick up her boyfriend Wednesday, April 14, and was arrested for speeding on Davis Road. When the officers ran her license, they discovered two warrants for her arrest out of Huron and Saginaw counties.
• A case of fraud came up after a 19-year-old student lost her ID card and attempted to call campus police to report it missing. She dialed the wrong number and the male who answered pretended to be an officer. He asked her for all of her information, and she gave it to him. He then yelled at her for giving her information out so easily and hung up. The campus police are trying to contact the impersonator.
Minor in Possession
• Two students received minors in possession at 2 a.m. Friday, April 9. Officers noticed a male and female staggering and yelling at each other as they walked on campus. When the officers neared, they could smell alcohol, and in breathalyzer tests, both students blew over the limit.
• On Tuesday, April 13, at 2:35 a.m. police were dispatched to University Village. When they arrived, they found two males playing guitars, who quickly got up and went into their apartment.
The officers went to the apartment and asked what the pair were doing, because the students had been reported for loud music and yelling. They confessed to drinking. One student was over 21, but the other student, underage, was given a minor in possession charge.
• On Sunday, April 11, campus police received a phone call from the township to have them assist them in a large fight. Some of SVSU’s sororities and fraternities were having a dinner in the banquet room at Wicklow Court Apartments when the social gathering got out of hand.
The attendants were fighting and arguing. The case is still under investigation. Sergeant Marc Strain asks anyone who knows any information about what happened to immediately contact campus police.
• A window was reported broken in the Regional Education Center on Tuesday, April 13.
• Two female students from the University Village noticed a male looking into their windows after they returned from a run at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 13. They had also seen him wandering around campus for the past few days.
Campus police have a person of interest, and the case is under investigation.
• A female from the University Village reported her iPod stolen from her room in during the Fall semester. She thought an acquaintance had it but found out that that wasn’t the case, and so she realized it was stolen.
• An Apple iPhone was stolen from the Cardinal Gym Wednesday, April 14. The male student put his stuff down by the wall and when he finished playing at 9 p.m. it was gone.

House Party Canceled
• Local media reports of a massive Saturday night party at Campus Village Apartments ended in little disruption, according to reports. The party, scheduled via Facebook with more than 5,000 planned attendees, was canceled at the request of the apartments’ management. The complex’s employees monitored cars for orange stickers, telling drivers that any vehicle parked without one after midnight could be towed.
Earlier in the day, police were seen with an armored truck that had a number of officers. Witness said they saw officers wearing full riot gear, including helmets, shields and batons.
