On Feb. 14 at 5:40 p.m., Emory Police Department (EPD) responded to a call regarding a theft from a car parked in the Lowergate Visitor Parking Deck. The car owner was visiting Emory and said that she parked her 2008 silver Lexus at 9:55 a.m. that day. When she returned around 5 p.m., she found her rear driver’s side window broken and two coffee machines missing from her car. The machines, a generic electric drip machine and a french press, are valued at $50 total. The case has been assigned to an investigator.
On Feb. 14 at 5:21 p.m. EPD responded to a call regarding a missing bike from 12 Eagle Row, the Alpha Tau Omega (ATO) fraternity house. An Emory student reported his grey Trek 8.5 Hybrid bike, valued at $1,100, missing. He last saw the bike May 10, 2016, when he placed it in a basement storage room of the ATO house. Between May 2016 and December 2016, he traveled internationally and went home to Pennsylvania. House residents cleaned the basement October 2016 because the clutter was considered a fire hazard. He returned to Emory’s campus mid-January 2017 and could not find his bike. The student believes that the residents left the bike behind the house in a fenced-in area after they cleaned the basement. The case has been assigned to an investigator. Campus Life was notified.
On Feb. 14 at 5:41 p.m., EPD responded to a call regarding hazardous materials at the Emory Woodruff Memorial Research Building. Officers found two sinks overflowing with water and an unknown irritant. Facilities Management and Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) also responded to the scene. Facilities Management told officers that a liquid containing ammonia spilled on the first floor, but a Merry X-Ray (MXR) representative on the scene determined that the spill was a mixture of X-ray developer and X-ray fixer, flushed by healthcare workers on the seventh floor of the building. The MXR representative told officers that, when combined, the products create the smell of ammonia, but are safe to flush with water. Nicole Campbell, EHSO professional III in charge of general safety and industrial hygiene, reported elevated pH levels in the water but declared the scene safe to clean. Facilities Management sectioned off the area to clean and asked a contractor to clean the pipes of the affected sinks. A keyholder to one of the nearby labs was notified.

He called Bicycle South, the company that owns the bike, and Manager Brian Dunne told him to file a report with EPD. The case has been assigned to an investigator.
