Student found under influence in Reisner Hall
Shippensburg University police were dispatched to Reisner Hall for an unconscious male in the front lobby on March 19.
Officers arrived at the scene and located Nolan K. Harty slumped over in a chair. They attempted to wake Harty by shouting and shaking him several times.
He woke up, began vomiting and had very slow and incoherent speech. The male had a blue rubber glove on his left hand, which he removed and exposed a severe burn on his thumb.
Harty said he used marijuana earlier in the day to help with the pain in his hand, because he burned it the night before at work. The burn appeared to be second-degree with signs of infection.
Shippensburg Area EMS arrived, and due to his intoxication level and severe burn, Harty was transported to Chambersburg Hospital for treatment.
Marijuana found in Lackhove Hall
Shippensburg University officers were dispatched to the fourth floor of Lackhove Hall after receiving a report of an activated smoke detector on March 16 at approximately 10 p.m.
Upon entering a dorm room on the fourth floor, they could see a smoky haze. Officers did a sweep around the room, in an attempt to determine what may have activated the alarm.
When they entered the bathroom, the officers observed two rolled blunts on the floor near a trash can beside the toilet.
Officers determined that both blunts contained what they suspected to be marijuana, and they were taken for testing evidence.
Caleb E. Fischbach, of Lancaster, admitted to possessing the marijuana and will be charged accordingly.
