Stanford student tip leads to arrests by campus police

On Monday, Oct. 19, Stanford police arrested two men and a woman in the parking lot between Roble Hall and Lagunita Court and charged all three with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). The arrests took place around 11 p.m. One male suspect was also charged for a car burglary that occurred on campus earlier that evening. The other male suspect was also charged with prowling. The female suspect was also charged for a probation violation and possession of stolen property. The suspects were booked into the main jail in San Jose. All three suspects lived outside the area.

Bill Larson, public information officer for the university's Department of Public Safety, credited a Stanford student with calling police to report a suspicious vehicle.

"With every opportunity, we remind students to report, report, report suspicious activity," Larson said. "This student called us immediately, and what a difference it made."

All three suspects are also being investigated as persons of interest in other campus crimes, as well as crimes outside Stanford’s jurisdiction, Larson said.
