Police Beat #26

Thank heaven for Fridays! I am looking forward to the weekend. Let's get it started off right with a good laugh:

Sept. 22: A female BYU student fell through the ceiling of the Thomas L. Martin Building while playing a game of hide and seek. The student was in an area of the building being remodeled where ceiling tiles had been removed for electrical work. Friends boosted the student into the opening where she fell through other ceiling tiles upon crawling around. She was not hurt.

(Comment: "Come out, come out wherever you are!" Thud!)

Sept. 26: A male student in Wymount Terrace reported his load of whites was stolen from the dryer in the community laundry room he had put them.

(Comment: Police interrogation question: "Gray, dingy whites or bright whites cleaned with the power of Oxyclean?")

Sept. 1: A building security officer was injured after biking down a grassy hill on campus. The officer did not see a bike rack at the end of the steep hill and ran into the rack. He suffered a broken wrist and elbow.

(Comment: He did not see the bike rack because was too busy keeping eye on a suspicious man carrying a laundry basket full of whites.)

Oct. 13: A student reported two male students throwing acorns off the bridge near the law building on East Campus Drive, hitting another student. When questioned, the male students said they were throwing acorns into the tops of trees to see the reactions of students who thought animals were making the noises in the trees. The students were asked to stop throwing acorns.

(Comment: Talk about a "corny" story. {sorry for such a poor pun:-})

Nov. 2: A student in Helaman Halls received a letter with a large sum of money in it from an address in Salt Lake. The student does not know who sent the money and the incident is under investigation.

(Comment: This was called in to the police? Who is this crazy person questioning a gift of a large sum of money?)

Nov. 21: A female student attempted to get the attention of two male students passing by Fox Hall in Heritage Halls by tapping on the glass window of the lobby. The female student shattered the glass window with her tapping.

(Comment: Yeah, that probably got their attention. Too bad she had to change her name and move away to get away from all the embarrassing comments!)

Scripture of the Day: Joshua 22:5


  1. Your comments double the humor. How embarrassing tapping on the glass and it breaks. That must have been some serious tapping.

  2. As a former BYzoobie myself, I love reading your police beats each week. It is a great way to get in my laughs for the day. Thank you for posting them.


Comments are much appreciated!
