Incident Report from the Madison Police Department:
Incident Type: Arrested Person
Incident Date: 12/30/2012 - 8:41 AM
Address: 1400 Trailsway
Arrested: Kameron Neil Powers, 18-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Unlawful Trespass & Possession Of Narcotics
Sidney R. Ivy, 20-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Unlawful Trespass
Victim: Building Residents
Details Madison Police were dispatched reference an unfamiliar individual that had been sleeping in the building, and the caller wanted the person checked. Police acted on the description provided, and contacted a male at a nearby bus stop, later identified as Kameron Powers. Powers stated he had been staying with his brother, and was just about to get on the bus. Police noticed a digital camera near Kameron’s feet, but stated he had no idea where it came from. Officers responded to the building where the dispatched call originated, and found several basement storage lockers open, due to a mere oversight or otherwise. Officers contacted Sidney Ivy and received a similar story of not knowing anyone in the building.
Officers took both Powers and Ivy into custody after determining the camera was from that location, and both had no authorization to be on property. After building residents had been contacted, it was determined that a variety of property items were missing from the basement storage lockers. One resident even noted that neither Powers nor Kameron looked familiar to them, but they allowed them access to the security locked building and even provided a knife for both to use to open the basement door!
Individuals that live in community residences should never allow individuals that are unfamiliar to them into a building, as this places everyone at risk. Residents should also secure and regularly check all assigned storage lockers, so that there is some account of personal property. If individuals are roaming the area, the police should be called to deal with these matters.
