Trespassers arrested on GSU campus

Three people were arrested by Grambling State University police Saturday when they were found to be on campus illegally. 

A GSU officer was patrolling the campus Saturday evening when individuals who have been banned from campus residential areas were spotted. Officers and a housing official found Joe Cleveland, 18, of Monroe, and Kenedi Hall, 19, of Sherwood, Ark., on the third floor of Douglas Hall. 

Cleveland stated he returned to the room because he and his wife Hall did not have anywhere to go. The third individual, a juvenile, was reportedly visiting with them. Housing officials advised all three were trespassing and did not have authorization to be in the dormitory. 

When an officer attempted to handcuff Hall, she resisted and jerked away. While the arrestees were being transported to GSUPD for further questioning, the juvenile advised she had cigars and marijuana in her pocket. After further investigation, Hall and Cleveland were transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and the juvenile was transported to the Green Oaks Detention Center. 

Cleveland was booked for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, an authorized entry of an interpretive dwelling, criminal trespass, and contributing to the delinquency of a child. Hall was booked for criminal trespass or authorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, contributing to the delinquency of a child, and resisting an officer. Bail was set at $23,000 for each individual.
