Get dent

On Jan. 7 at 1:18 p.m., Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) was notified by a student that their car had been damaged. The student parked their car in Cousens Parking Lot around 11:45 a.m. and returned around 1:00 p.m., when they observed a large dent to the rear driver’s side. There was no note left at the scene of the property damage, and TUPD is currently investigating.

On a separate note

On Jan. 8 at 5:38 p.m., TUPD was notified by a Tufts employee that their car had been damaged. The employee parked their car in Dowling Hall Garage where it was hit by a Tufts affiliate, according to a note from the affiliate left on the employee’s vehicle. TUPD assisted the employee with getting in contact with the affiliate.

Don’t give a hoot

On Jan. 16 at 9:35 p.m., TUPD received a report of an incident from a student. The student was walking down Talbot Ave. around 8:00 p.m. when a car drove by and the passengers hooted and hollered at the student, as well as another individual walking ahead of the student.

Fraudulent goods come in big packages

On Jan. 17 at 8:53 a.m., TUPD received a report from a non-Tufts affiliate living in a Walnut Hill Properties house that someone had purchased a 50-inch TV using their credit card information and had the TV shipped to their address. The individual saw the package in the common area of the house, but within an hour the TV was gone.

Book ’em

Later that day at 3:48 p.m., TUPD received a report that a student had lost their ID the day before and that the missing ID had been used to make a $26 purchase at the Tufts Bookstore. TUPD is currently investigating with the help of the Tufts Bookstore.
