An officer on patrol in the area of East 22nd Street and Euclid Avenue observed a non-CSU affiliate rolling a shopping cart containing five cardboard boxes wrapped in garbage bags.
The officer suspected the cart had come from a building on campus.
When stopped, the suspect said he found the cart outside the Student Center.
Upon search, the officer found four cases of trash bags and one case of paper towels. The suspect said he could sell the items in his neighborhood for money.
A representative from CSU Housekeeping was contacted and confirmed the property as CSU owned. The supplies were returned and the suspect advised he could be charged with receipt of stolen property.

The afternoon of June 16, an officer on foot patrol of the Swingo’s Court area spotted a non-CSU affiliate laying on the loading dock of a business. On approach the officer could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the suspect.
When asked how much he had to drink the man replied that it was probably too much. The man was slurring his words and could not stand without assistance.
Subsequent search of his property revealed him in possession of a water bottle containing an alcoholic beverage. He was charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication as well as open container and transported to jail.
At approximately 9:45 a.m. on June 17, a student called Cleveland State University police to report the front tire of her bicycle had been stolen outside Heritage Hall.
She told officers the last time she had seen the bike intact was June 12.
She described the wheel as being 26-inches with pink rim and white walls, retailing at $85.
Use the lockers!
Officers responded to a report of theft at the Cleveland State Recreation Center the afternoon of June 21.
An hour earlier a Cleveland State student had set his bag down to play basketball. Upon returning, he found $35 to be missing from his wallet.
Officers completed a theft report and advised the student to use the lockers located next to the basketball courts in the future.
