On August 1, 2022, information was received from a manager with the EFY office. The manager asked our Victim Advocate to make contact with an EFY participant’s mother about an incident that took place at the Maple Dell Campground during an EFY session last week.

The contact information was given to the mother.

The reporting party called the police department on this date to report his Mac Book Pro as either lost or stolen. The RP last had possession of this item in the Cougar Eat last Thursday. The police were called after several calls to Lost and Found failed to locate the item. After a report was taken over the

phone, video surveillance was checked, which resulted in an in person visit to BYU Lost and Found where officers located the missing item. The missing property was returned to the complainant.

Dispatch received a smoke alarm activation in room 107 LSB. Officers were dispatched to that location as the building evacuated. The activated sensor was located. It was apparent that employees dusting the ceiling either stirred up the dust or bumped the sensor, activating the audible alarm. The alarm was silenced and then reset by the assisting electrical shop employee.
