Burglary in Progress, Trespass
1395 E. 100 S.
Members of the Sigma Chi fraternity awoke to male voices outside yelling to be let inside. When they were not, the male suspects went to the west side of the frat house and broke a basement window to gain entry. They were yelling loudly and making their way to the third floor. A K-9 Sergeant was first to arrive and was directed by frat members to an upstairs room. He and his K-9 dog detained the three male suspects until more officers arrived. The males were identified as fraternity alumni in good standing: who were apparently there to relive some of the glory days. Once the situation was clarified, it was decided to document and potentially screen trespassing and criminal mischief charges due to the frat members not feeling as victims due to the alumni status. Investigation is on-going.
