Medics had Murray on the ground, performing CPR on her when officers arrived. While medics assisted her, security advised officers that Murray had been unresponsive for a few hours before they noticed her, and when they tried to wake her up, she was breathing abnormally, so they busted the windows, removed her from the vehicle, and began CPR.  Then, officers were informed that a dollar bill containing a white powdery substance and two straws with similar residue were found inside Murray’s car, the substance is believed to be Fentanyl. These items were in plain sight, giving officers probable cause for a search, which led to them locating a loaded Smith and Wesson handgun, an opioid rescue kit, a dose of Narcan, and a pill bottle for Penicillin that contained an orange pill. The pill was later identified as Suboxone. Murray was transported to the hospital while they collected the evidence and obtained a search warrant to get a sample of her blood for chemical testing. Murray was Mirandized, agreed to speak with officers, and admitted that the substance in the pill bottle was Suboxone.

Mason Marina breaks into roommate’s room to steal her food

25-year-old Mason Marina stole food from his neighboring roommate, Jessica Hopkins, at their shared residence on Broadway on the afternoon of January 23rd. When the officers arrived, Hopkins advised them she rents two rooms inside a residence that three other people share in addition to her. She explained that since she does not share her two rooms with anyone, she usually locks them before leaving. However, a previous incident that resulted in the door being removed from its hinges hindered her from securing it completely before going to work. So, she placed the door against the frame with a note stating not to enter before reiterating this to her roommates. Then, when she went to work, she checked her cameras, which showed Marina pushing the door away to enter her room. Marina then grabbed various food items and began eating them. Hopkins told officers that Marina was prohibited from being in the room or eating her food. She then explained how they had prior intimate relations. Officers identified Marina from previous incidents with his information attached to them. After reviewing the video, they requested a warrant for his arrest, and then Marina was taken into custody for burglary.
