This blotter covers Sept. 2—Sept. 8 

A hole was cut in the side of a university greenhouse and a weed eater was stolen during the Labor Day weekend, according to a police report. 

A staff member called campus police Monday to report a hole had been cut in the plastic wall of a greenhouse on Clubhouse Dr. and a weed eater was missing. Police did not find any evidence at the scene, Lt. David Law said. 

The case has been suspended for the department’s crime division to follow up. 

Lowry Woods—Two Lowry Woods residents were issued citations by campus police early Tuesday morning for underage alcohol consumption, according to a police report. 

A resident assistant called TWU’s Department of Public Safety about two female residents acting suspiciously outside the Lowry complex around 4:55 a.m., according to the report. The 20-year-old residents were cited and released, Law confirmed.

Oakland Complex—A Denton resident turned an iPad that had likely been stolen over to campus police Thursday, according to a report. 

The man told police he purchased the iPad from a local Goodwill and later discovered it had a TWU inventory sticker on it. 

The report does not state whether the device worked or when it might have been stolen. It will be returned to university inventory, Law said. 

Response activity: TWU’s Department of Public Safety responded to 614 dispatched and officer-initiated calls between Sept. 2 and Sept. 8.
