On April 21 at 5:05 p.m., EPD responded to a call regarding a theft from a vehicle parked on Level F of Lowergate Visitor Parking Deck.

On April 22 at 12:46 a.m., EPD officers patrolling Eagle Row were flagged down by an Uber driver who was dropping off an Emory student. The student was unconscious in the back of her vehicle. EPD called Emory Emergency Medical Services (EEMS), and DeKalb American Medical Response (AMR) arrived on the scene. Officers found two IDs, one real and one fake, on the Emory student. Officers confiscated the fake license after cross-referencing her name on OPUS to determine the student’s real date of birth. DeKalb AMR transported the student to Emory University Hospital (EUH). Campus Life was notified.
On April 23 at 12:45 a.m., two EPD officers patrolling Eagle Row in front of Sorority Village stopped at the Delta Phi Epsilon lodge after seeing two Emory students holding red plastic cups. The two students attempted to hide the cups from the approaching officers. Officers took the cups and saw clear liquid smelling of alcohol inside. Officers cited one “argumentative” student for having an open container of alcohol in a public area, a violation of DeKalb County ordinance 16-69. Because she was cooperative, the other student was permitted to leave with a warning that it is illegal to consume alcohol under the age of 21 and to possess an open alcoholic container in public. Campus Life was notified.
