Campus Crime, Feb. 7 - Feb. 10
Officer Floyd Layne responded to a smell complaint made by a parking services worker patrolling on Aggie Road in front of Arkansas Hall.
Layne could detect the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and asked the driver, Jeffrey Vong, if he had been smoking. Vong said he had not been smoking that day but turned over a small amount of marijuana to Layne.
Vong was issued a persona non grata for the Jonesboro campus for possession of illegal drugs.
At 2:10 a.m., suspect Randy Howard ran a red light at the intersection of North caraway Road and East Johnson Avenue. Officer Daniel Bradway was sitting at the light and saw Howard’s vehicle turn, strike a curb and become airborne before coming down nose first into the grass on the side of the road.
As Bradway checked on the driver and the vehicle, he noticed that Howard was disoriented and speaking with slurred speech. A strong smell of alcohol came from Howard and his car, according to the report.
When backup officers arrived and attempted to remove Howard from the vehicle, he became belligerent and shouted, “don’t put your f***ing hands on me!”
The officers handcuffed Howard and escorted him to a Jonesboro Police Department patrol car. Charges will be handled by the Jonesboro Police Department, according to the report.
Officer Tracy Fleetwood discovered a pizza box in the stairwell of Arkansas Hall at 2:30 a.m. Fleetwood called the number written on the pizza box and requested the suspected owner of the box to come to the residence hall lobby.
The suspect, Jesse Flack, admitted to leaving the pizza box and associated paper plates and pizza crusts in the stairwell. Flack took the garbage out to the dumpster under the direction of Fleetwood.
Officer Floyd Layne made a traffic stop on University Loop for a vehicle traveling 17 miles per hour over the posted speed limit of 20 miles per hour.
Before making contact with the driver, Gregory Allen, Layne noticed that the car had expired license plate tags. Upon further investigation of the tags, Layne discovered that they were registered to a vehicle of a different make and model that the one they were traveling under. Allen said he had swapped the tags from his previous vehicle when he purchased a new car in September 2013.
Allen was issued citations for no vehicle tags, fictitious tags and speeding.
