The following information was provided by the Marshall University Police Department:

PETIT LARCENY: Three stu­dents reported stolen bikes in the past two weeks. One theft took place between 5 p.m. Sept. 18 and 10:35 a.m. Sept. 19, outside Twin Tow­ers East. The second took place between Sept. 13 and 19, outside Willis Hall. And a third was reported outside Gibson Hall between Sept. 20 and 21.

INVASION OF PRIVACY: A stu­dent reported that while living in the North Residence Hall in February during her freshman year, a known person videotaped her taking a shower. Last week, the video was posted on social media. Campus police are inves­tigating.

H A R R A S S M E N T: A student reported that another student who lives off campus posted an ad on Craigslist that has resulted in random messages to her Twitter account. She reported the incident to campus police on Sept. 19.

POSSESSION OF A CON­TROLLED SUBSTANCE: A student was charged with possession of marijuana after officers respond­ed to his room in the South Resi­dence Hall for an odor complaint on Monday. A search discovered a small baggy of a green leafy substance, nine cigars rolled with marijuana and digital scales.

When the officer caught up with the suspect's vehicle, the driver was staggering out of his vehicle, the officer said. The driver exhibited glassy, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, and he failed three field sobriety tests, the officer said.

The officer also found one unopened beer can in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

The man was taken to the West Virginia State Police detachment for processing, and a breathalyzer test indicated the man had a blood alcohol content of .183.

The driver was taken to a local hospital for a medical evaluation, but he refused treatment prior to being transported to the Western Regional Jail.

The responding officer issued her a citation, and she was released from custody.

At Macy's, an employee reported on Sept. 23 that a 35year-old Huntington woman attempted to leave the store without paying for two pairs of jeans, worth $203, she concealed in her purse.
