Crime on campus; bike thefts, alcohol and drugs

Open containers

There were 27 open container violations on campus Saturday Oct. 1, according to OSU Police reports.

The Ohio Revised Code 4301.62 regulated where open containers of beer or intoxicating liquor are prohibited, according to the Ohio Department of Commerce’s website.

Open containers are prohibited in any public place in Ohio.

All of these open container violations occurred on campus during, before and after OSU’s home football game against Michigan State.

Drug paraphernalia

Two Ohio State students were arrested for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia at the Lane Ave. Parking Garage

on Oct. 3.

Bike thefts

Four bicycles were reported stolen from campus locations on Sept. 29, Sept. 30, Oct. 2 and Oct. 3 in unrelated incidents. The thefts occurred at the Neil Ave. Complex, University Hospital, Canfield Hall and Baker Systems Engineering Building, respectively.

The OSU police website suggests bicycle riders use multiple O- or U-shaped locks and move parked bicycles frequently to prevent theft.

Bicycle registration is free at Blankenship Hall. A registered bicycle is more likely to be found or returned if stolen, according to the OSU police website.
