Campus crime wrap-up, week 10

Nineteen crimes were logged during Dead Week on the University of Oregon Police Department’s daily campus crime record. Here’s a breakdown by each type of crime:

– Drugs/alcohol: 8

– Criminal mischief/trespassing/graffiti: 5

– Theft/other: 6

March 12 was the most crime-heavy day this week, with a total of seven crimes recorded. Only one crime was logged on Friday.

On the log, three drug violations had their locations recorded as “420 tree.” The “420 tree” is a term UOPD officers use to refer to a tree on the eastern edge of campus where students and others are often seen smoking marijuana.
