Brief Post-Break Beat

Hey Blagojevich ‘- don’t try and hide back here at UT!
On Jan. 13 a male subject from Illinois contacted admissions in reference to attending the university. He was advised to complete the on line application and he would be contacted. On Jan. 15 the subject apparently flew to Tampa anyway and attempted to attend the evening orientation at the Sykes College of Business, uninvited, but was turned away. He returned on Jan 16. and went to the admissions office. Due to the subject’s demeanor and inability to comprehend the directions he was advised he was not being considered for enrollment. He refused to leave the offices so security was contacted. Officers spoke to the subject and explained to him that he was no longer welcome on university property. He was then escorted off campus to the bus stop as he said he was going back to Illinois.

Oh, uh, it was ours.

Officers were advised on Jan. 18 by a student returning from winter break that a 27′ flat screen TV was missing from a room. Investigation revealed the TV was removed on Dec. 24 by university staff and stored in an IT storage room. Further investigation found that the TV was sold to a student (person reporting) by the previous student resident of the room. However, since the student had left the university the room was listed as vacated with the TV left behind. Staff was advised to remove and store any property located in the rooms, and on Dec. 24 they removed property from vacated rooms. After contacting facilities they directed security to the IT storage room where the TV was located and it was given to the student.

Congratulations to our semester’s first alcohol poisoning ‘hellip;

Security was contacted on Jan. 19 in reference to a female located passed out and unresponsive in a Vaughn Center room. Officers responded and located a female in the bed of a room not belonging to her and no one knew who she was. The room resident was not in his room and his roommate did not know the female either. The female appeared intoxicated but unresponsive so Tampa Fire Rescue was called. Upon arrival they evaluated the student and based upon her condition transported her to Tampa General Hospital where she was admitted for further treatment.
