Police Briefs

    The Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) received a call from the Medford Police Department at 11 a.m. last Wednesday requesting that an officer come to a store on the corner of Boston Avenue and North Street. An individual was attempting to sell a laptop to the store, but when the worker checked it, the computer turned out to belong to a Tufts student.
    A TUPD officer called the student, who told the officer that he had left his room at 123 Packard Avenue days prior when a fire alarm went off and that when he returned, his laptop was missing. He never reported the theft.
    The student came to the store and identified his laptop. The individual trying to sell the laptop was arrested for receiving stolen property worth over $250.

    TUPD officers responded to a call at 12:25 a.m. last Wednesday reporting a verbal altercation at South Hall. Two students had disposed of a large plastic pretzel container in a garbage bin because the recycling bin was full. Another student excitedly told them that they should have recycled it. He was "passionate about recycling," TUPD Sgt. Robert McCarthy said.
    The officers talked to the three individuals and told them to stop arguing, and that while they probably should have recycled the container, it was not worth starting a fight.
