Police Blotter

Nov. 1, Fayerweather Hill Road, 1:43 p.m.

Safety and Security noticed that a man who looked like a transient had gotten off a bus in Hanover and was walking on the Dartmouth campus. The white-bearded man was wearing dirty blue jeans, a white button-down shirt and glasses with one ear piece missing. After talking with him and getting his name, Safety and Security called Hanover Police and asked them to check if the 62 year old was wanted for any crimes. He was not.

A passerby informed a police officer on traffic detail that he had observed a male in the CVS parking lot pounding on a car with a female inside. The officer relayed the situation to another on-duty officer, who reported to the scene. When he got there, however, no such situation was to be found.

Nov. 2, Lyme Road, 12:35 p.m.

Hanover Police arrested a Dartmouth sophomore for unlawful possession of alcohol stemming from an Oct. 20 incident. On that day, police reported to the Gold Coast residential cluster where Safety and Security had told them a student was passed out. When officers arrived on the scene, an ambulance had already taken the 19 year old to Dick's House. Police proceeded to Dick's House, where they found the subject refusing a nurse's request to perform a breath test of blood-alcohol content on him. He eventually took the test after the officer convinced him that, if he did not take the test, he might have to go to the house of corrections. The sophomore has a court date later this month.

Nov. 2, Lebanon Street, 4:48 p.m.

Safety and Security noticed three boys on the roof of the Hopkins Center. After getting the juveniles off of the roof, Safety and Security called Hanover Police because they believed the boys were going to run away. Officers arrived at the scene to find two of the three, both Hanover High School students. The other fled through the Hop. Upon a search the officers found cigarettes on one, a 17 year old, and marijuana on the other, an 18 year old. The younger one was issued a summons for possession of tobacco products and the older was arrested for possession of marijuana.
