OCCC police responded to several calls in January.

At about 3 p.m. on Jan. 3, a former OCCC student was spotted viewing pornographic images on the computers located near Main Building entry 1. According to a police report, work-study students called campus police to report the activity.

According to the report, the 45-year-old male had several tabs open at the bottom of the screen and questioned the police when he was instructed to open them. None of the tabs that were opened at that time contained inappropriate images.

However, a student, working at the Welcome Desk, told police she saw full frontal nudity on the suspect’s computer screen. She said she had witnessed the same man viewing pornographic materials on the public computers before. She said the incidents were always on a Friday.

Campus Police officers Jeremy Bohannon and Joey Piazza performed a search on the suspect’s driver’s license and found no criminal records or outstanding warrants. Once his license was returned, he left campus without any incident.

Another report was filed involving pornographic materials at approximately 7 p.m. on Jan. 15. This incident involved a 24-year-old male viewing pornography on the library computers. Officer Patrick Martino was called to the library circulation desk, where he was told the librarian had screenshots of the images the individual had been viewing.

Martino issued the suspect a Notice to Vacate the College property. The suspect was prohibited from entering OCCC property for six months.

The dispatcher said the suspect may have had an outstanding warrant, so the Oklahoma City Police Department was dispatched to the OCCC campus. The OCPD could neither confirm or deny that he had an active warrant. The suspect was then released back into OCCCPD custody. He was released from custody and escorted off the property.

At approximately 9 a.m. on Jan. 17, a 26-year-old male was caught trespassing on OCCC property.

Officers David Madden and Tim Harris spotted a car in Parking Lot A that was registered to a person with a two-year suspension from OCCC because of previous offenses.

The officers then found the suspect in the OCCC Bookstore and requested identification. The suspect claimed he was unaware he was suspended and said he had enrolled in four classes.

The suspect was escorted to the Student Life office where they could confirm the suspension. He met with Student Life Assistant Director Chris Shelley. The suspect was then escorted to his vehicle.

The names of all suspects were redacted on each of the reports under the direction of Marketing and Public Relations Director Cordell Jordan.

“If a person is a suspect of a crime and was not placed under arrest by the reporting agency, nor charged with a crime by the courts system and/or did not have outstanding warrants at the time of the report, their name is not required to be released, and is withheld for purpose of due process,” Jordan said in an email after being asked for reports with the redacted names included.

To contact campus police, call 405-682-1611, ext. 7747. For an emergency, use one of the call boxes located inside and outside on campus or call 405-682-7872.
