San Jacinto Residence Hall, 309 East 21st Street

Occurred between 6-3-05 at 4:00 p.m. and 6-4-05 at 1:00 p.m.

Theft: A purple Next brand bicycle was stolen while it was secured with a 1/2" thick cable lock to a bicycle rack on the east side of the dormitory. Loss value: $125.00.

Crime Prevention Tip

A half-inch cable is a decent sized cable. Unfortunately, bicycle thieves are well equipped to cut significantly larger cables. To protect your bicycle, the UTPD minimum recommendation is a u-lock that uses a combination or a standard key. The police department's best recommendation is the use of a u-lock and a cable lock at the same time. You should also have your bicycle registered with the university. You can register your bicycle free of charge and on-line.

San Jacinto Residence Hall, 309 East 21st Street

Occurred on 6-10-05 at 3:00 a.m.

Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor / Failure to Identify: A UT student, who was under the age of 21, had repeatedly attempted to enter the dormitory through the main entrance and had been asked to leave by the dormitory staff. When asked his name, the student gave a police officer his father's name. The student was found to be in possession of a UT ID card belonging to a female resident of the dormitory. The student stated he obtained the ID card from an unidentified subject at a fraternity party where he had been drinking alcoholic beverages.

Crime Prevention Tip

UT ID cards are non-transferable. If you are a dormitory resident, your UT ID card functions as a key to certain doors in your dormitory. Any faculty, staff or student member should report their UT ID card as lost or stolen as soon as possible. If you are a dormitory resident, you also need to report the lost or stolen ID card to your dormitory staff.

The student was found to have consumed alcoholic beverages. The student was also found to be in possession of a valid Texas Driver's License that was issued to another person.
