Bike Theft Suspect Apprehended

Written by

Bwog received a email from Dean Terry Martinez about Columbia Public Safety’s successful apprehension of a bike theft suspect. After receiving a tip from a CC student on November 22nd, Public Safety followed up and managed to arrest the suspect for “attempted bike larceny, criminal mischief, and possession of burglary tools.” In light of the recent crime around campus, even this small victory feels particularly comforting. Check out the full security update below:

Please be advised that on November 22, 2011 Columbia University Public Safety received a tip from a CC student regarding suspicious activity in a potential bike theft. As a result, Public Safety Officers were able to apprehend the suspect and NYPD arrived on the scene to arrest him for attempted bike larceny, criminal mischief, and possession of burglary tools. A special thanks to the student for alerting the authorities.

As always, if you have any information about the recent crimes or recall any unusual activity, please do not hesitate to call Public Safety at 212-854-5555 (4-5555). Thank you in advance for partnering with us to ensure the safety of our community.

      I read your comment as genuine and I was like "what?!?!?!?! They can't be for real" and then I realized it was laced with overt sarcasm. And I felt stupid but appreciated your comment for it's snarky deliverance of the truth.
