A real banger
A 20-year-old man from Anchorage was intoxicated and banging on a door in Bartlett Hall on Oct. 6. The man was not a student or resident on campus. The officer found out he had an outstanding warrant. UAFPD arrested and transported him to the Fairbanks Correctional Center. He was also banned from all UAF property.
Grand theft auto
Alaska State Troopers are investigating two series of auto thefts. On Oct. 6, a vehicle from the first string was discovered in the Taku lot after a university employee recognized it from the News-Miner. The thief had stolen a truck, drove it to a house, robbed that house and left the truck there. Then, the person stole the vehicle from that house. That vehicle was a 2008 Toyota Tacoma pick-up and it was recovered from the Taku lot. It was transferred to the Alaska State Troopers. The investigation is in progress. There are no suspects.
Demonstrate no sleep
Three men were sleeping at the Rasmuson Library on Oct. 9 while taking a break from the Occupy Fairbanks protest. Some were trespassed by officers for not being students, but the rest were following the demonstration policies.
Ah, son of a gun
A man from North Pole lost a wooden box filled with cash from the Tanana Valley Rifle and Pistol Club’s semiannual gun show at the Patty Center Lot on Oct. 9. UAFPD performed an ATV and foot patrol of the area, but it was not found.
On Oct. 9, there was a report of graffiti on a Lola Tilly Commons trash container rented from Allied Waste. It read “Good food and 420 power.” Police are not sure if the 420 is a reference to marijuana or something else.
A 33-year-old male student on felony probation for his third DUI within 10 years was trespassed from UAF by a probation officer for sleeping in the Great Hall on Oct. 9. He was not a protester and is still allowed to attend his classes on campus.
Hide and seek
