On Nov. 13 the Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) responded to a report of a marijuana scent emanating from a room in Miller Hall at 9:30 p.m. The Resident Assistant of the hall reported that he had just engaged in a verbal altercation with the resident of the room from which the odor originated. Police officers knocked on the room’s door and spoke to the resident, who stated to the officers, “If you’re here to search my room, I’m not going to allow it.” TUPD did not search his room, but advised him to stop smoking marijuana and leaving his skateboard in the hallway, which is a violation. The student denied smoking marijuana but admitted to the skateboard violation.
Underage and Under the Influence
TUPD received a report on Nov. 15 of an unconscious and unresponsive individual at 12:09 a.m. The intoxicated person was a high school student visiting a Tufts student. Officers were told that the high school student had consumed vodka, tequila and beer. His mother was notified of her son’s condition, and he was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
At the entrance to Cage Rage on Nov. 15, students were scanned with a metal detector, and two incidents of illegal objects reported to TUPD. In the first incident, at 7:42 p.m., a student was discovered to be carrying a metal box containing marijuana. The box doubled as a portable vaporizer. Everything was confiscated. At 8:52 p.m. another student was discovered smuggling marijuana into the event.
Roof Climbers Continued
At 12:23 a.m. on Nov. 17 four people were reported to TUPD as being on the roof of Metcalf Hall. They were all told to come down, which they soon did.
At 3:58 a.m. on Nov. 17 TUPD received a call reporting a breaking and entering at 123 Packard Ave., the house of Tufts fraternity Theta Delta Chi. When officers arrived at the fraternity, two students stated that they had been inside the house when someone knocked loudly at the door. When the students responded to the knocking, the person at the door came into the house and began asking if a blonde female named “Ari” was at the house. The students replied that there was no one at the house who fit that description. The intruder then exited and approached a taxi cab on the side of the street, asking the cab driver if he had delivered the blonde female to the fraternity earlier. The cab driver responded in the negative. After this rebuff, the intruder re-entered his own vehicle, in which a woman was waiting, and drove off.
