When she went to retrieve the purse at the end of the game it was gone. The student waited several weeks to report the incident because she thought the purse would turn up in the lost and found. Police have no suspects.

    On Oct. 25 between 5 and 6 p.m., a FedEx package was stolen from the doorstep of a Wymount Terrace apartment. When the victim arrived home a neighbor asked if he had received the package.

    Between Oct. 28 and Oct. 30, Cougar Stadium was vandalized. The perpetrators poured gas on playing field spelling “UVSC” and then lit the words on fire. The damage is estimated at $200.

    On Oct. 26, the elevator buttons of Deseret Towers W-Hall were glued. The vandals used SuperGlue to render every button useless. Damage to the elevator totaled $630. No one has been cited for the incident.


    At midnight on Oct. 29, University Police were called to assist Provo Police in dispersing a crowd in front of Gold’s Gym on 1720 North 500 E.

When officers were able to detain the man, he said the handcuffs were fake and part of a joke. The man was cited for disorderly conduct.

    Officers responded to a call of an explosion at Deseret Towers Q-Hall on Oct. 27 at 12:45 a.m. Near the building, officers found burnt pieces of paper and the smell of burnt explosive powder.
