Police Beat #29

Hope your Friday is Fantastic!

Feb. 17: A female student reported receiving an offensive phone call around 2 a.m. The victim didn't answer the call, but received a sexually oriented voicemail from a male claiming to be a student from the BYU booster club. She ignored the call and alerted police.

(Comment: Actually it turned out the call was from the BYU rooster club--a complimentary wake-up call service available to BYU students. This female student was late to her Spanish exam as a result of this misunderstanding.)

Feb. 16: A male stole a jacket from the BYU Bookstore on Feb. 9, but police were unable to locate him. The suspect returned to the bookstore on Feb. 16, wearing the stolen jacket, and once more left the store before police could find him.

(Comment: Maybe if the BYU police add a game or two of Hide and Seek to their training sessions they could find criminals like this.)

Feb. 16: Police received a report of a 40- to 50-year-old man walking around a parking lot north of Helaman Halls. The man was not doing anything wrong, but was "acting suspiciously". Police responded and discovered the man was waiting to get picked up.

(Comment: Yeah, it is every 40 to 50 year-old males' dream to be "picked up" by college co-eds. Hopefully BYU girls aren't that desperate.)

Feb. 12: Police received a report of a patron in the HBLL looking at pornography on a computer. Officers determined it was not child pornography and no action was taken.

(Comment: What?!? Adult pornography is okay to look at in HBLL? Not child porn, but adult porn. They ought to post a sign becuase I would bet a lot of students are confused about that.)

Feb. 16: A Wymount tenant alerted police of a suspicious man in a suspicious vehicle driving between Wymount laundry facilities. The man turned out to be a Wymount tenant who was looking for an open washer and dryer.

(Comment: It was probably better he didn't find an open washer. We all know what happens when a man tries to do the laundry.)

Scripture of the Day: Titus 2:4


  1. These are great. Makes me miss Provo. Just a little.

  2. Ok -- thought your rooster club comment was real until I read it again.

    Sometimes I'm so nostalgic for BYU, and then I see one of those letters to the editor about girls wearing tight (immodest!) capris or something.

    And thanks for the link love!

  3. I think one of my favorite things about Friday is reading your blog! I love the stories, but I especially enjoy your comments.


Comments are much appreciated!
