On the record

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

Stops are only suggestions

Nov. 2, 9:49 p.m., a non-Ferris student was pulled over for disobeying the stop sign directly outside of Ferris’ pharmacy building failing to stop. The driver was arrested after the dust settled because they were not licensed to operate a motor vehicle.

The Clery alert

Nov. 3, 8 p.m., the notifications that set off all students, and faculty who have signed up for the Clery alerts came out the following day at 2:10 a.m. A sexual criminal conduct happened in Brophy hall. More will come out once this case is reviewed by the district attorney.

Snap it, rip it, flee it

Nov. 4, 6 p.m., someone drove into lot 20 next to a truck with a Trump flag and decided to deface it. The perpetrators proceeded to snap the poll off the truck and then ripped the flag into pieces. They decided to drive off with the evidence. When the victim filled the report, they described the vehicle and the perpetrators two white males. The police saw a vehicle that matches the description and an investigation entailed. It was found out the driver of that vehicle was a Black man and his mother, and the victim gave a false positive identification on the plates. The investigation was ultimately terminated over lack of leads.

Off the grid

Nov. 5, 11:05 p.m., a non-Ferris student was pulled over in Northland Drive heading towards Knollview Drive. The first tip was, while the car was moving forward, it was dragging a piece of the car making a horrible noise. The second tip was, there was no license plate. After the officer gathered some information, the driver had no insurance nor a license. An appearance before the court ticket was issued.
