Breaking and Entering

Officer Gary McGee received a report about a possible breaking and entering at Parking Lot #13 on Feb. 5, at 4:19 p.m. According to the police report, a UA Little Rock student returned to her car after class and noticed that the vehicle’s front window was broken and the glass from it was on the ground. The driver reported to McGee that her backpack, containing medical insurance paperwork, lip gloss and a purple stun gun, was missing from the car.


Officer Christina Cordell responded to a call at the Donaghey Student Center on Feb. 6, at 11:48 a.m. According to the police report, a witness called Campus Police after hearing “yelling and banging” from the men’s bathroom near her office. After investigating the bathroom, Cordell found the western-most bathroom stall door was broken from the hinges and leaning against the wall.

According to the police report, the witness said shortly after the commotion she saw three young men standing directly outside the bathroom. The witness did not recognize the individuals, but gave their description to Officer Cordell.

Fire Alarm

Officer Gary McGee was dispatched to Building 4 of the University Village for a fire alarm on Feb. 5, at 3:36 p.m. According to the police report, McGee arrived at the scene and spoke with the Housing Director, Austin Rose. Rose said the alarm was triggered due to a malfunctioning pull station on the first floor of Building 4. Once the Little Rock Fire Department arrived at the scene, they were unable to reset the fire panel. Tony Peitz of campus Environmental Health & Safety was contacted to come to the building and reset the panel.
