Recent crime reports include a stolen backpack and a stolen name plate.

A student’s backpack was taken after he left it unattended in the Math Lab.

At approximately 4 p.m. on Aug. 26 OCCC student Quinton Mountain, 21, reported his backpack had been stolen from the lab located on the second floor of the SEM Center.

According to the report, Mountain said about an hour after he entered the lab, he left his backpack unattended at a table to go to the bathroom. When he returned, he said, the backpack was missing.

The backpack was worth approximately $300. It contained Mountain’s wallet, books and diabetic equipment.

After reviewing video footage, Officer Patrick Martino was able to determine a suspect.

He said a man drove a motorcycle onto campus at 2:56 p.m. The suspect took Mountain’s backpack at 3:49 p.m. and immediately left campus.

Martino was not able to identify the suspect by name, but said he is in his early- to mid-20s, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a hat, white tank top, shorts, and boating shoes.
