A parking citation was given to a student for violation of a ‘No Parking Zone’ in Lot 1 – B. The man’s car blocked the custodian and grounds department access to their work shed. Since Sept. 25, 2102, the vehicle has accumulated 19 parking citations. Campus security said the owner pays every citation. Security workers confiscated his parking permit and he must park at Pershing Park or at the metered beach lot.

Two students in Lot 3 witnessed a hit and run accident. A truck with a trailer drove the wrong way in the structure, causing damage to the front bumper of a parked car. The witnesses heard the noise and saw the driver exit the truck, look at the damage and then drive away without leaving any contact information. The students followed the truck down Shoreline Drive and wrote down the license plate number. Campus security left a note containing information of the incident on the damaged vehicle. The owner stated she intends to file a police report.

A written note with foul language directed at campus officers issuing citations was found in Lot 1 – A. Security workers discovered the note on a car windshield. It said, “Dear SBCC parking, I will not pay for your tickets. F- you for ticketing.” The vehicle has five citations for illegal parking in the same area.

Two males smoking marijuana on the West campus bluff were caught by a security worker. The officer observed one student handing a pipe with smoke to his friend. When asked about their actions, they stated that they were ‘medicating.’ Both were informed that using drugs on campus is not allowed. They were cooperative and referred to the dean of student discipline.
