The following incidents were among those handled by the Central Michigan University Police Department from Oct. 4 to Oct. 12.
Due to a remote cyberattack on Oct. 10, city computers and phone systems are temporarily down, including those at the Mount Pleasant Police Department. Next week's crime log will be updated with the missing entries.
Police stopped a vehicle without a license plate and found that the driver had two warrants out for his arrest in Missaukee County. The 20-year-old man was sought for the possession of dangerous drugs and a traffic offense. CMUPD arrested and turned him over to the Missaukee County Sheriff.
Parking Services called CMUPD after finding a fraudulent parking permit on a vehicle in Lot 47. The 18-year-old man had been assigned a freshman decal and was displaying a different decal that did not match his vehicle in order to be parked closer to his residence hall. CMUPD made contact with the owner of the car, who admitted to taking a picture of a different permit, printing it out and putting the decal on his car. The incident was turned over to the Office of Student Conduct.
A 21-year-old man and a 20-year-old man called CMUPD outside of O'Kelly's Sports Bar and Grill to report a stolen cell phone. The men reported the phone was stolen while they were assaulted in nearby bushes. The men were not able to describe their attacker or identify the make, model or registration of the attacker's car. There are no suspects for this incident.
Parking Services contacted CMUPD after finding a fraudulent parking permit on a vehicle in Lot 44. This was determined to be the same vehicle from Sept. 28, which had been displaying a south decal that did not match the vehicle. CMUPD made contact with the owner of the car again. The 19-year old man said he was going to buy a permit but hadn't yet. The incident was previously referred to the Office Student Conduct but has since been turned over to the Prosecutor's office for review.
A 19-year-old woman reported her bike stolen outside of Larzelere Hall on campus. She had last seen it on Oct. 9 and noticed it was missing on Oct. 12. Her bike was not locked, but it was registered on campus.
