On Sept. 13 at 1:46 a.m. officers from the Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) responded to an incident at 100 Packard Ave., the house of fraternity Theta Chi. A Tufts student met the officers and explained that three young white males had entered into the house and were causing a disturbance. The student claimed that the intruders, who were not Tufts students, had come into the house hoping to cause a fight and had threatened to hit a Tufts student with a brick. The intruders were apprehended by Fletcher Field. When interviewed by TUPD officers, they reported that they had been walking by the fraternity house and had been drawn into an argument with some fraternity brothers who were on the steps of the house. Each of the intruders had been drinking.
At 1:47 a.m. officers responded to a report of the smell of marijuana coming from a room in Haskell Hall. The door was unlocked but only slightly ajar when the officers arrived, and the smell was obvious. A student who claimed he lived in the room arrived and asked to enter the room. As he opened the door to enter, officers noticed another male student lying on the bed with bloodshot eyes. A green leafy substance was spotted on the desk. The materials were confiscated and the students were reported.
At 9:30 p.m. three high school-aged males were reported for adding graffiti to university property in front of the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center. Officers responded and questioned the three males in the lobby of the building. One of them was carrying a bag, which was searched by officers and discovered to hold 25 Somerville High School ID cards belonging to students, staff and faculty. The intruders claimed the stolen ID cards were part of a game. The intruders had also filled out Jazz Ensemble audition sheets with obscene language and rude comments, such as “617 f**k you” under the telephone number. The intruders were brought to the police station where they were picked up by their parents.
