Security responded to the Bell Center based on report that someone had broken a glass panel to a racquetball court.

A male student reported a magazine salesman sold him magazines at Carpenter Residence Hall at about 5:00 p.m. on October 7. The student then googled the company and found there had been many complaints and he cancelled his check before it was cashed. Security personnel wrote an e-mail to the listed company advising their people of trespass for the Drake Campus. However, the e-mail web site (atlanticcirculation.com) was not recognized by the e-mail client. Soliciting is not allowed on the Drake Campus and magazine salespersons have been a problem on the Drake Campus over the past several years. In many instances the students purchased magazines and never received their magazines nor did they receive their money back. Please contact the security office (515-271-2222 or merely 2222 if a campus phone) if a salesperson approaches you on the campus. Normally these solicitors approach residence hall students in their rooms and they are normally well dressed and are usually college age males or females.
A male student reported his bicycle was stolen from the bike rack or railing on the west of Herriott Residence Hall between 2:00 p.m. on October 1 and 6:00 a.m. on October 4. He stated he locks his bike but sometimes it does not secure properly.

The male stated he had consumed a small amount of alcohol.
Security received a call from a female student who stated her female student roommate had taken a medication in excess of her prescription and was headed east from Goodwin and Kirk Residence Hall Complex. The student was located at the Fine Arts Center and Fire/Rescue was called as she wasn’t sure of the amount taken or to the reason she took more then prescribed. She was transported to a local hospital.
Security responded to the intramural fields based on report of an injured person and that fire/rescue need not be called.

A friend took him to a local hospital for treatment.
