As a public service to the campus community, the Pioneer will be publishing a campus crime blotter each month during the spring semester. A federal law called the Jeanne Clery Act, also called the Campus Security Act, requires that colleges make available information about crimes on and around their campuses within two business days. The Pioneer will obtain this information from the Office of Public Safety. Following is the information that Public Safety made available to the Pioneer on January 24, 2013. Public Safety informed the Pioneer that December and January crime statistics are not available.
• November 6, 2012 – Underage students were caught in possession of beer and alcohol. The minors were found in Riggs Hall by housing staff and the Resident Officer. Marijuana was also found. The students were not drinking or smoking at the time of the report.
• November 7, 2012 – Marijuana was confiscated on campus in Post Hall when a resident was caught smoking with their guest. No arrests were made, but the resident was informed of the schools drug policy.
• November 15, 2012 – A cell phone was stolen from the first floor men’s bathroom in Riggs Hall. The student filed a police report.
