Northwestern student loses iPhone while walking

University Police received a lost property report on Nov. 23 from a student who said he lost his iPhone while walking on campus.

The student was heading west in the 600 block of University Place on Nov. 21 around 7:53 p.m. with his iPhone 4 in his front pants pocket. However, when he arrived at his dorm around 9 p.m., the phone was no longer there. After unsuccessful attempts to call his phone and retrace his steps, the student notified UP.

Investigation is still ongoing, Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said.

Three students found with alcohol, cannabis in dorm room

Alcohol and cannabis were found in a second floor dorm room in mid-November at 1835 Hinman when University Police responded to an odor investigation reported by a Community Assistant.

UP officers arrived at 1835 Hinman on Nov. 15 around 11:23 p.m. in response to a CA who reported strong odor of burned cannabis emanating from a dorm room while conducting regular checks of the  hall. Officers proceeded to the room, having detected the strong odor, and subsequently asked for permission to enter the room when a female student answered the door.

Two other girls, both NU students, were seen sitting by the window. All three were observed to have “glassy and bloodshot” red eyes, McAleer said. One girl admitted they were smoking cannabis when asked, two were in possession of cannabis, 16 and 26 grams respectively, which they had bought from an unknown person on the street for personal use. The cannabis found was worth approximately $350. The third girl said she was just in the room to smoke but admitted she had alcohol in her room, which she later turned over to the police as well. All three students were underage and taken into custody around 12:01 a.m. Nov. 16, and issued local ordinance citations.

Two students were charged with underage possession of alcohol and possession of cannabis. They are scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 18.
