Crime Blotter

Tailgate party
Alvin J. Littlehead, 24, was arrested after patrolling campus officers were called to the basement of Parking Structure 2 at 9 p.m. Nov. 16 on a report of possible drug use.

They encountered four individuals next to a vehicle and a strong odor of marijuana. Littlehead said he was the owner of the vehicle. He admitted having marijuana in his possession and pulled three small bags of it from his pants pocket. He told officers he sold a bag to another individual, who officers learned was a 16-year-old. He admitted he had been selling the drugs out of the vehicle while parked in the basement.

Littlehead, not a student, has been previously trespassed from the campus so he was cited for criminal trespass. He also was charged with possession and distribution of drugs within 1,000 feet of a school and endangering the welfare of a minor. He was released after being cited.

Erotic error
A couple discovered copulating in a car parked at Southwest Broadway and Salmon Street at 4:26 a.m. Nov. 17 resulted in the arrests of Elizabeth A. Kline, 24, and Darron McGlothin, 33.

Both were charged with public indecency. When officers asked Kline for her name, she gave a name different from an identification card she presented. A warrant check showed she had two outstanding charges, one for driving under the influence of alcohol and the other unspecified. She was transported to the Temporary Booking Facility. McGlothin was cited and released.

Booze bust
At 11:30 p.m. Nov. 17, patrolling officers observed a couple sitting in the Park Blocks near Cramer Hall with an open container of beer. They said the beer was not theirs.

On a consent search, officers discovered two large knives and a can of beer inside the man’s bag. A pat down search also revealed a drug pipe and a baggie of marijuana. The woman retrieved a can of beer from inside her sweatshirt and said the man gave it to her.

Since she was a minor, she was transported to New Avenues for Youth. The man, Jason C. Fuller, 47, was arrested on charges of drug possession within 1,000 feet of a school, furnishing liquor to a minor and carrying a concealed weapon. He was cited and released.

Phone tag
Patrolling officers saw a man talking on a blue light emergency phone in the West Hall parking lot just before midnight Nov. 18. When they asked him if he needed assistance, Joseph H. Yeh, 26, took off running.

He was stopped at Southwest 13th avenue and Montgomery street. A check showed he had received a previous trespass in July 2000, so he was cited for criminal trespass. When asked why he had been talking on the emergency phone, he said he did not wish to speak to officers.

Property pinched
The owner of an auto reported a PSU parking permit stolen from his vehicle before midnight Nov. 17. The owner did not report exactly where or when the theft occurred.

In the afternoon of Nov. 19, someone took a stereo from a 1994 Honda parked on the fifth floor of Parking Structure 1. The thief broke a side window to gain entrance.

A bicycle and two locks, total value $2,050, were stolen from the bike rack between Cramer Hall and Lincoln Hall shortly before 8 a.m. Nov. 20.

Lot rage
A new variation on road rage, parking lot rage, occurred soon after noon on Nov. 18. As one driver was pulling out of the exit of Parking Structure 1, another driver drove improperly into the exit. An argument ensued during which the transgressing student demanded an apology from the complaining student.

When the complaining student refused, the transgressing student pulled off the complaining student’s glasses and threw them to the pavement. They were not broken and no further action resulted.
