Wite-Out vandals and trespassing in the Rec Center
– Criminal mischief was reported at the CU Transportation Center. There was a large rock thrown at a CU Buff bus parked at the garage. The damage is estimated to be $400.
– A painting of CU presidential candidate Bruce Benson, which hangs in the Benson Earth Sciences building, had a derogatory slogan written on it in Wite-Out.
– Brandon Fields, 29, was arrested for criminal trespass after officers contacted him at the MCDB building. CU Police Department Commander Brad Wiesley said Fields had been warned previously and was issued a ticket, on two separate contacts, for trespassing in CU buildings. On his third and last contact, Fields was arrested and jailed.
– Andypheth Vongpheungpheng, 39, Sommano Vongpheungpheng, 30, and Somphathai Vongpheungpheng, 30, were issued summonses for criminal trespassing after officers contacted them at the Rec Center. All three had no affiliation with the Rec Center.
“Two [of them] had worked there several years ago,” Wiesley said. “They used a false code to enter the Rec Center as if they were students. All [three] were cited for trespassing.”
– CU student Edward Foden, 18, was issued a summons for shoplifting after officers contacted him at the CU Book Store. He allegedly stole two textbooks worth $125.
– Edward Valdez, 35, was arrested on two active warrants after being contacted at 14th and Walnut. Officers contacted Valdez for walking down the street with an open beer.
“A routine computer check showed two outstanding arrest warrants [for Valdez], one from Lakewood Municipal Court for possession of marijuana or paraphernalia with a $500 bail amount, and the second for contempt of court out of Boulder with a $225 bond,” Wiesley said.
