University Housing adds 344 liquor and drug violations to crime log

257 liquor and 87 drug law violations were added to the University of Oregon Police Department’s crime log on Nov. 4. All of the incidents, which took place primarily in the residence halls, were handled through student conduct.

Although the incidents were only added recently, they reflect violations that have taken place throughout fall 2014. UOPD Public Information Officer Kelly McIver said that University Housing, which handles the bulk of liquor and drug violations in student housing, periodically sends data to the UOPD to be put on the crime log.

Otherwise, Week 6 numbers reflected normal campus crime trends trends – bike thefts and substance violations. The Kid Cudi concert on Nov. 6 likely contributed to the cluster of incidents surrounding Matthew Knight Arena on the same day.
