On the Record

A roundup of this week’s crime at Ferris State University

Just need to clean 
Oct.12 8:00 p.m. A civil dispute broke out at the Granger building. The custodial staff called 9-1-1 after students would not leave the building while working on projects. After the cops were called twice the students were instructed to leave so the custodial staff could clean. 

Fast and furiously unlicensed 
Oct. 13 8:16 p.m. A non-Ferris student was pulled over on Family Drive near Ferris Drive, for not having headlights on while at night and going 45 m.p.h. in a marked 25 speed zone. It was found the drive had a suspended license and was issued a court appearance ticket. 

Hide and seek 
Oct. 14 1:36 a.m. Ferris State Public Safety executed a warrant to arrest a suspect for obstruction of justice – failure to appear at court – taking the suspect to the county jail, where they wait to appear in front of the court for more charges 

Taco rang the police 
Oct. 15 12:35 a.m. A drunk person walked through the Taco Bell drive-thru ordered food and began to yell at the workers for not giving the person the food they did not pay for. Ferris DPS had to remove the man from Taco Bell, but no arrest was made 

Something to nothing to criminal 
Oct. 15 5:20 p.m. A student’s ex-boyfriend did not take the break-up lightly. The Ferris student had to lock themselves in their room while the ex-tried to bang on the door and not give up. DPS was called but the ex-left the scene before they showed up. Ferris issued a trespass policy against the ex-so he would stay off campus. Three days later he showed back up onto campus trying to stalk and harass the Ferris student. DPS respond to the call again and a chase ensued. The ex-got away, but not without two counts of fleeing and eluding in the 4th degree, stalking, and reckless driving. A warrant is being sought for his arrest.
