Monday October 28

12:27am- A power shutdown caused the alarm in the Administration Building to go off.

2:40pm- A car was broken into in the Wheatley Hall garage. A CD player was taken. They almost always seem to take things of value.

4:43pm- A disturbance was reported in the Healey Library’s eighth floor. Two people were arguing about the use of a cell phone. When the police arrived, the parties didn’t want to pursue the matter, probably because they feared humiliation and general ridicule in Police Log.

5:27pm- A suspicious-looking box was reported in the Administration Building. Police checked it out and found it filled with toys. Police Log would like to thank the person who reported it in aiding the War On Terror (TM). Toys, like Mr. Hussein, can be very, very dangerous.
