Cruelty to Animals: Two separate cruelty to-animals radio calls were responded to at Grossmont. One was at the one-hour

a psychiatric subject at Building 60. The subject was transported to a local hospital to seek treatment.

Finally, deputies investigated a trespassing incident at the construction site near the west end of campus.

Suspicious Persons: Deputies investigated two calls regarding suspicious people on campus. The subjects in question ended up being campus staff.
