A 4/20 oops on the KU campus

Someone on the University of Kansas campus appears to have missed out on the peak hour of April 20, aka 4/20, celebrated as a national holiday by pot smokers.

According to an online crime report from KU police, this incident occurred between 4:15 p.m. and 4:20 p.m. on Friday, April 20: “Someone left a jacket containing drug paraphernalia and marijuana on a KU bus.”

The crime, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, was reported shortly after 4:30 p.m. at the Kansas Union — I presume by KU transit or someone else who found the jacket, though I’m awaiting confirmation on that from KU police. According to the crime report, the related KU police investigation is ongoing.

Reported car-bashing spree on Louisiana Street leads to arrest

Police arrested a man who they suspect smashed out the windows of at least eight vehicles on Louisiana Street overnight.

Officers were dispatched about 9:10 p.m. Monday to the 2400 block of Louisiana Street, where multiple callers reported seeing a man outside smashing car windows with a baseball bat, according to Officer Derrick Smith of the Lawrence Police Department. When officers arrived at the scene they found at least eight vehicles with smashed windows, Smith said, but they searched and didn’t locate the suspect there.

Shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday, officers found the suspect in the 3100 block of Ousdahl Road and arrested him on suspicion of criminal damage to a total of 10 vehicles, Smith said. Smith said police have forwarded the case to the DA’s office to consider charges.

Lawrence police plan DUI saturation patrol starting Friday, ‘4/20’

Lawrence police are amping up patrols to catch impaired drivers and other traffic violations beginning Friday — which is April 20, aka 4/20, the day designated by pot smokers as an annual holiday.

In a news release about the upcoming saturation patrol, the Lawrence Police Department reminds motorists that DUI charges can result from driving under the influence of any drug, not just alcohol, and that DUI is risky and dangerous.

“Injury and deaths continue to increase from both alcohol and drugged impaired drivers,” the news release says. “Regardless whether a drug is legal or illegal it’s a serious crime to drive while impaired by any drug.”

Designate a sober driver, the news release reminds, and always buckle up.

The saturation patrol will run Friday through Sunday in Lawrence.

Lawrence police are joining other law enforcement agencies in similar efforts across Kansas and the region. “Law enforcement around the six-state area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around city, state and federal highways,” the news release says.

Ninth Street restaurant reportedly burglarized, ‘ransacked’ overnight

A restaurant near downtown Lawrence says it will be closed at least through Tuesday to clean up after being broken into.

“Nothing like a Monday showing up to pried open doors and a ransacked building ... not cool and not a good start to the week,” Sully & Hank’s, 602 W. Ninth St., posted on its Facebook page Monday morning. Later in the day, the restaurant added, “We will be closed Tuesday to reprep lost food and finish clean up from today and will reopen Wednesday.”

Police were dispatched about 8:10 a.m. Monday to the restaurant on a report of a burglary that had occurred overnight, said Officer Derrick Smith of the Lawrence Police Department. Smith said police had not yet completed their report and, as such, didn’t have additional details — including suspect information — to share as of Monday afternoon.
