Police Beat

I have decided to start a new weekly post with quotes from the BYU newspaper (The Daily Universe) column "Police Beat." Some of the "crimes" that happen at BYU are very worthy of mentioning--even if it strictly for enjoyment sake. So here goes:

February 11. A female Wymount resident received a suspicious phone call in her home at 1:30 p.m. The male caller claimed to be from the psychology department and said he could try to help her relax. He got her to turn off the lights and lay down on her bed. The phone call ended when the girl’s cell phone battery died. BYU Police told her she should notify her phone company next time she receives a call so that they can trace it.

March 26. The mother of a BYU student called the police when she suspected that her daughter’s roommate stole her butter knife. The mother later called to drop the charges.

March 29. A group of adolescent females called BYU police when an elderly female accosted and threatened them in the bathroom. The girls all went to use the restrooms at the same time and the woman was upset that there was no open stall. Police were not able to locate the elderly female.

Scripture of the Day: Psalms 119:15


  1. LOL!! Those are great!! Can't wait to read more of those awful crimes. ;)

  2. I was a big fan of the Daily Universe police beat when I was at BYU so I look forward to your excerpts. They even got my anti-BYU husband laughing.


Comments are much appreciated!
