Two Arrested in Caples in Drug-Related Incident

By Marika Garland

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men, both non-students, in a “drug-related incident” in Caples Residence Hall last Thursday, Nov. 10, according to Director of Campus Safety Bob Hooper. The men were “arrested for either parole violation or criminal trespass,” Hooper said. “We had a trespass letter on one of the individuals, so we did sign charges through the Sheriff’s department.”

A Kenyon student was also involved in this incident, according to Hooper, who said he cannot share any additional information about consequences the student may face at this time.

“[The incident] has not gone through the judicial process yet,” Hooper said. “From our standpoint, our biggest concern is we have students that are allowing those kinds of people in our residence halls, which is the reason we put the lock system on.”
