Walking on broken glass

Crime doesn’t pay, but you’ll pay for that stuff you stole
A theft occurred at the Weber State bookstore on Sept. 14. A white male wearing a face mask and hat spent approximately 45 minutes in the store gathering items and stuffing them into a black backpack. After putting a shirt, speaker and a binder in the backpack, the suspect moved the backpack, covered by a plaid shirt, toward the exit but then hid the backpack under a display rack. A few minutes later, the suspect re-entered the store and carried the backpack and shirt out of the store.
We almost needed a second ambulance
A traffic accident occurred on Sept. 29 between a white Toyota and an ambulance. The accident occurred as the Toyota was leaving the A2 parking lot and making a left hand turn. The ambulance was heading southbound on Edvalson, and had the emergency lights on but was in the process of turning on the sirens. The driver of the Toyota was issued a citation for failing to yield during his left hand turn; no one was injured.
The sparks just weren’t flying
An officer spotted a disabled vehicle in the R2 parking lot on Sept. 27. The officer asked if the driver needed a jump, and the pair attempted to jump the vehicle. After failed attempts to jump the vehicle, the driver’s father arrived with a tow strap. They then were able to move the vehicle from the parking lot.
