Someone apparently punched a $1,000 television in a common room at Delta Delta Delta sorority, 1541 E. Second St., Saturday night. A member of the sorority called police at 1:14 a.m. Sunday after discovering the screen "collapsed." She said the television was intact at 11 p.m.

Another member of the sorority told police she returned to the house at 11:45 p.m. and saw three uninvited males waiting in a common area of the house. The men were trying to use the phone, but the member asked them to leave, however, the member was not sure if the men actually left.

Police were attempting to contact the males as part of their investigation.

Police responded to a "system trouble" fire alarm at Delta Tau Delta fraternity, 1550 N. Vine Ave., after a resident removed a smoke detector from the ceiling.

When an officer arrived at the fraternity house at 4:51 p.m., the fire panel was showing trouble on the second floor. Police investigated and found a smoke detector missing from a holder outside of a room.

The residents of the room said they removed the detector because they were about to vacuum and did not want to set off the alarm.

Police observed no smoke or fire in the building, so the officer warned the residents not to tamper with the alarm system and left.

A Parking and Transportation Services official found a vehicle's front bumper in a parking lot at East Second Street and North Vine Avenue Monday afternoon.

The employee found the black and red bumper with a California license plate attached at 2:01 p.m.

Police were not able to locate a person matching the name on the vehicle's registration. The location of the rest of the vehicle was unknown.

A vehicle parked at Corleone Apartments, 1330 N. Park Ave., was burglarized sometime Sunday morning.

The owner was visiting a friend at the apartment complex when he parked the vehicle at 4 a.m. He told police he thought he locked the car.

When the owner returned to the vehicle at 11 a.m., a police officer was taking a report for another theft nearby when the owner told the officer items were also missing from his own vehicle.

Two amplifiers, an acoustic crossover and a speaker box were taken from the vehicle. The owner said his wallet may have also been stolen, but he was not sure.

The missing items are valued at $675.

A black Huffy mountain bike was stolen from near Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., sometime over the weekend.
