Someone’s playing with fire, but not getting burned

On March 13 around 1 a.m., Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) received a report that someone had stolen all the fire extinguishers from the lower campus garage. TUPD searched the area for the missing fire extinguishers and the fire marshal was alerted. TUPD was unable to identify who had stolen them. The fire extinguishers have since been replaced.

A Dewick affliction

When one door closes, another is forced open

On March 21 around 9:30 p.m., TUPD received a report of a breaking and entering in the Hillside Apartments. However, upon further investigation it was determined that a suite resident had pushed too hard on their bedroom door. Nothing appeared to be missing and there were no other signs of forced entry.

You’re fired

On March 24 at 1 p.m., TUPD responded to a problem with the fire panel in the Hillside Apartments. The fire panel was out of service due to a steam leak. Students were temporarily relocated because of the lack of fire protection and the building was put on fire watch. The next day, the fire panel was repaired and students were allowed to return to their suites.

Not(e) in my house

The note spoke negatively of University President Anthony Monaco. TUPD investigated the matter, identified the student involved and turned the situation over to the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs.
