Campus police respond to numerous reports

An arrest, a student with a rubber gun, a student smoking marijuana and a stolen cell phone were all listed on the most current crime reports received by the Pioneer.

At approximately 12:03 p.m. Feb. 7, OCCC Police Officer David Madden made an arrest at the intersection of Faculty Circle and Parking Lot F after OCCC student Jayme Archer was stopped for speeding. Madden reported that Archer wasn’t able to produce a driver’s license but had a student ID.

A check revealed that Archer did have a valid driver’s license. She also had an outstanding warrant in Pottawattamie County for possession of credit default swap.

Archer was cited for failure to have a driver’s license in her possession. After being taken into custody for the prior warrant, she was transferred to Oklahoma County Jail.

A report of a man with a toy gun sent Officer Daniel Piazza to the SEM Center at approximately 11:34 a.m. Feb. 10.

A 23-year-old white male had a toy handgun made of rubber that resembled a semiautomatic pistol, the report showed. The student told Piazza he was using the toy gun as a training aid to teach a female student about gun safety.

Piazza took pictures of each student and took a written statement. The officer also took the rubber gun and a knife the man had. Both students were released soon after.

Officer Nelson Gordon responded to a report of someone smoking marijuana in a car in Parking Lot C. At 2:12 p.m. Feb. 12, Gordon approached student Kameron Barton, 20, and instructed him to roll down his car window.

Gordon reported that when the window was down, he smelled marijuana. A passenger in the car, Siarrah Mitchell, 19, also is an OCCC student. Barton was instructed to get out of the vehicle, where he was then searched by Madden.

Gordon said he was unable to comment on the case because it is a pending investigation.

Student Meagan Zamudio reported that her Galaxy Nokia 3 phone with a purple case had been stolen from Arts and Humanities classroom 1D1 at approximately 5:46 p.m. on Feb. 13.

She reported that she had left her personal cell phone on a table while she stepped out to make a call on a work cell phone. When she returned to the classroom, her personal cell phone was missing.

There were about 10 other classmates in the room, but Zamudio said she did not ask any of them if they had taken the phone.

Zamudio said when she tried to call the phone, it went straight to voicemail.

Officer Jeremy McIntire instructed her to ask her classmates about the phone, and to call her service provider to get the serial number so he could place the phone into a database as stolen.

Names redacted on the reports received are done so under the direction of Marketing and Public Relations Director Cordell Jordan who said names are redacted “according to OCCCPD Standard Operating Procedures involving information released and information withheld.”
