Stolen car, needle sticks reported to cops

One OCCC student is without wheels after his car was stolen from parking lot C at around 12:40 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25.

According to the report, Tyler Halbert, 18, said he arrived on campus around 9 a.m. in his 1997 red Honda Civic with white aftermarket wheels and red lug nuts. When he returned from class, the car was gone.

After reviewing security footage, Campus Police Officer Tim Harris was able to see two males, possibly Hispanic, arrive on campus in a four-door Honda Accord at 11:16 a.m.

According to the report, one of the men got out of his vehicle, entered the victim’s, and exited the parking lot at 11:23 driving Halbert’s car. The other suspect departed campus as well, taking a different route.


No broken glass was spotted at the scene.

Halbert said he had recently purchased the vehicle and had not changed the title or registration.

The case is still active. Additional information is available in a supplemental report that was requested but not provided.

Three separate reports were filed Monday, Sept. 22, and Thursday, Sept. 25, where nursing students were stuck by needles.

At around 9 a.m. Sept. 22, nursing major Amber Idlett reported having stuck her thumb with a needle during classroom activities. She refused medical attention.

Later that day, at about 12:09 p.m. Sept. 22, a 29-year-old female nursing student also was doing practical activities in Health Professions Room 146 when, she reported, a needle flew out of its packaging, grazing the cornea of her right eye. She said she did not want medical attention. No further action was taken.

On Sept. 25, a nursing student reported that she stuck one of her fingers with a needle while practicing on a mannequin. She also refused medical attention.

Some information was redacted from the reports 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.”
