On Thursday, Officer Ryan Crawford was dispatched to Kays Hall to take a theft report from Mallory Frank. Frank said while she was in the shower, someone had come into the shared bathroom. According to the report, after she got out of the shower, she noticed her phone was missing. She had her roommate call the phone several times, but there was no answer. Frank had a suspect in mind that might have taken her phone, however, the person in mind denied she had taken it. According to the report, the phone was not recovered.
On Saturday Officer Floyd Layne was on foot patrol in Arkansas Hall and smelled marijuana coming from one of the rooms. He called Officer Robert Peevey for assistance with the situation. The officers confirmed which room the smell was coming from and asked the resident if they could enter the room, according to the report. The peephole to the room was missing, so both officers could see inside the room. Peevey saw Ashley Scrape place a silver bag into another bag and cover it up with a jacket, according to the report. After knocking again, the occupants granted the officers entry to the room, where Scrape, Patric Moore and Quentin Rose were. Peevey asked about the bag Scrape had hidden and asked if it was marijuana. She retrieved the plastic bag, which contained two green buds of marijuana. Moore and Scrape said they had smoked the marijuana outside, according to the report. Scrape was issued a persona non grata since she was not a student. Layne then flushed the two marijuana buds down the toilet.
While on patrol Sunday, Officer Ron Smith observed Preston Bradley walking near the residences on Faculty Drive. When Bradley saw the patrol car, he began to quickly walk away. Then he began running away carrying a white plastic bag in his right hand, according to the report. Bradley began running toward the railroad tracks and wooded area and was followed by Smith. Smith called other officers in for backup. Sgt. Bobby Duff and some other officers arrived to help locate Bradley. According to the report, Bradley came out of a heavily wooded area. When Smith told him to stop he ran away again, according to the report. With the aid of Jonesboro officers, Smith located Bradley and placed him under arrest. He was issued a citation for criminal trespass, fleeing.
