Police Beat

So You are You, and You’re Who?

On Saturday, Nov. 3, police were conducting a safety stop when a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt pulled up at 10:20 p.m. Officers detected an odor of fresh marijuana coming from the passenger compartment and told the vehicle to pull over to the side of the road. The driver and his passenger were told to exit the vehicle while the search was being conducted, and when police checked the names and birth dates the two men gave them with dispatch, they came back valid. Police found marijuana in the vehicle during the search and placed both men under arrest for possession.

After being place under arrest, the driver of the vehicle informed police officers that he originally provided a false name and birthdate

because his license was suspended. The ID the driver gave to police was actually his passenger’s information, and the information the passenger gave police was a friend’s. The passenger stated that when his friend falsely gave police his information, he did not want to get him in trouble so he just came up with a different name as well. During the booking process, the passenger of the vehicle was found with an additional Georgia identification card that did not belong to him, and it was confiscated. Both men were issued citations for giving false name and possession of marijuana under one ounce, and the driver was also issued a citation for driving with a suspended license.

 

Study-Aid Fail

Police were dispatched to University Place on Thursday, Nov. 1 in reference to suspected marijuana. Police could smell the odor of marijuana around the apartment, and when they knocked on the door, could smell the odor coming from inside the apartment when it was opened. The two male residents told police they did not have any marijuana and gave their consent for a search to be conducted of their rooms. During the search, a bottle of Captain Morgan Parrot Bay rum was found in one of the rooms, along with some Vyvanse pills wrapped in aluminum foil. The resident told police he uses the pills to study, but that he did not have a prescription for them. He was placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance and underage possession of alcohol and was transported to Cobb ADC.

 

Wounded Pride

Police were dispatched to University Village Suites on Monday, Nov. 5 at 5:55 p.m. in response to an assault. The victim, who is not a student at KSU, stated he was on campus to visit his friend. The victim said he was outside the Suites smoking a cigarette when the suspect, a black male around 6’1- 6’2 with dread locks, approached him and asked if he had a spare cigarette to give him. The victim replied that he did not have an “f-ing cigarette”, and the suspect then punched him around his left eye/cheek area and ran away. When police asked him if he was hurt, the victim replied that it was just his pride. He was advised to contact KSU Police if he saw the suspect again.
