Switched SD card, intoxicated man reported to cops

A lost or missing SD card and an intoxicated visitor in the library kept campus police busy on Oct. 29.

Student Kevin Stout reported the SD card in his phone had been replaced without his permission or knowledge.

According to a report filed by Officer Gordon Nelson, Stout had been in a study group in SEM 1D2. Stout said sometime after this, he tried to turn his phone on and the screen displayed a message that said the SD card was blank. Stout then reportedly checked the card and discovered that his 32 GB Samsung SD card had been replaced with a 16 GB card of an unknown brand.

Stout said while he was in his study group, he had placed his phone on the table and left it there until he went to a lab. Stout said he left the room on three occasions but each time he returned, his phone was in the same place as when he left.

Stout gave Gordon the names of the people in his study group. Stout placed the value of his SD card at approximately $69.99.

On the same day, Officer Ronald Ventresca was dispatched to the library regarding an intoxicated person who was causing a disturbance.

The man, Jack Johnson, a visitor who had prior police contacts on campus, was seated at a computer. Johnson told Ventresca he was getting ready to leave and told Ventresca he was “looking at stuff [he] shouldn’t have been looking at.”

Ventresca reported that Johnson was visibly intoxicated.

When Ventresca told Johnson to follow him outside to talk, the man twice refused, then reached for his backpack.

Ventresca said he then took control of Johnson’s arm and Johnson became even more resistant.

Ventresca said Johnson shouted obscenities as he was escorted from the library.
