Two students charged with underage drinking
SU police observed a male who was urinating on the rail trail path in the area of the goat path steps on Feb. 3 around 12:30 a.m.
When the officers turned around, they noticed a second male also urinating. Both males began running toward North Queen Street where they were caught in the area of Our Lady of Visitation Church.
One of the males was identified as Ryan R. Rose, 20, of Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Rose told officers that he knew he had been urinating in public and that he was publicly intoxicated. Rose had glassy, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and was unable to answer simple questions.
Due to Rose’s high level of intoxication, Shippensburg Area EMS was dispatched. Rose was then transported to Chambersburg Hospital. He was later cited for underage drinking
The other male, later identified as Ian Thomas, 19, of Yardley, Pennsylvania, was also found to be intoxicated and admitted to drinking. Thomas was also charged with underage drinking.
Student charged with underage possession
SU officers were doing speed enforcement on Feb. 4 in the area of Grace B. Luhrs Elementary School when they observed a silver sedan traveling east on Adams Drive.
The vehicle was clocked with a timing device at approximately 12:30 a.m. traveling 30.9 mph in a 15 mph zone. Officers pulled behind the vehicle and turned on their emergency lights. The vehicle came to a stop on Adams Drive outside of McLean Hall.
As the officer approached the driver, they observed a full bottle of Ole English 800 malt liquor lying on the floor behind the front passenger seat. The driver was identified as 19-year-old Elliott C. Gangloff.
Gangloff admitted that the alcohol was his and allowed the officer to remove it from the vehicle.
Officers issued him a university ticket for exceeding the speed limit on campus, as well as a non-traffic citation charging him with alcohol possession under the age of 21.
Minor charged with underage possession
SU police officers observed a male who they believed was in possession of an alcoholic beverage in the L-2 storage parking lot on Feb. 9 at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Officers began speaking with the male, who provided them with his identification, which showed he was a juvenile. The juvenile was found to be in possession of a bottle of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky.
The juvenile was transported back to the campus police station where he was released into his mother’s custody. He was later charged with underage possession.
Student resists arrest
SU officers were on patrol in the L-2 storage parking lot when they observed Jordan L. Strickler, 20, of York, Pennsylvania, walking through the lot on Feb. 10 at approximately 1:30 a.m.
Officers tried to engage the male in conversation when they suspected he was highly intoxicated. The male was told repeatedly to stop, to which he would not do. Officers walked over to the male and again asked him to stop, which he refused to do.
As officers tried to stop him, Strickler also used his left arm to try and push officers away.
Strickler continued to struggle and resist officers as they attempted to handcuff him. He pulled away, and officers saw him running down the lot and onto Paul Drive where he went in to the area of the large drainage pond.
Officers found Strickler at the bottom of the drainage pond, where he was handcuffed and Shippensburg Area EMS were called.
Strickler received minor injuries from fleeing the officers, along with injuries from climbing through the thick brush. As EMS attempted to assess his injuries, he became very disorderly with the EMS staff to the point that an officer was requested to ride along with EMS to the hospital.
A criminal complaint was filed against Strickler.
