A professor in Ryder Hall called the Northeastern University Division of Public Safety (NUPD) to report a 26-year-old student had arrived to class heavily intoxicated for the second consecutive week. NUPD officers arrived and spoke with her. Police said she was unsure of what day it was and thought it was morning. She was transported by ambulance to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

7 p.m.
A proctor in West Village E reported that sometime during the three hours he worked, his Red Sox hat had been stolen from the proctor station. Police played back video of the lobby the next day to identify the person who stole the hat. The student, who lives off campus and is 24 years old, was signed in by a female who lives in the building. When Northeastern University Division of Public Safety (NUPD) officers spoke with him, he said he was so drunk when he entered the building that he barely remembers taking it and didn’t know where he left it. He was able to find it later that day and the hat was returned to the proctor. Both the student who stole the hat and the girl who signed him in will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution (OSCCR).

A detective was at Stetson West to follow up on information NUPD had obtained the previous week about students using hallucinogenic mushrooms on the second floor. He spoke to four students who admitted to using mushrooms and identified another student who had sold them the drugs. The detective then confronted that student who admitted to selling drugs. The student said he had sold them every week since the beginning of the year but had stopped the previous Friday because it was too much work to keep up with. All five students will be reported to OSCCR.

She became angry and began yelling at him, requesting that he stop what he was doing and help her. She grabbed his Husky card off the desk in front of him and told him that if he wasn’t going to help her, he wasn’t going to get his card back and ran out of the building.

An officer on patrol passed Opera Place and noticed a man urinating on the side of 337 Huntington Ave. When he saw the officer he began to walk away despite the officer’s requests that he stop. The officer caught up with the 19-year-old student, who was intoxicated. He will be reported to OSCCR.

7:30 p.m.
A Resident Assistant at 780 Columbus Ave. reported seeing a female student inside the building who is known to have been banned from all residence halls. After checking with the proctor, NUPD discovered she had attempted to use an ID that was not hers and would not swipe correctly. She gave him the name on the ID and since she looked like the girl pictured, he let her in. Police then went to speak with the resident whose ID she had used. The student had her own valid ID and claimed that she had no idea how the banned student had gotten her ID. Officers then caught the banned student coming through the lobby and escorted her out of the building. Both students will be reported to OSCCR.
