Police: 6 arrested for squatting, vandalizing OSU fraternities


CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – Corvallis police arrested six people for allegedly squatting in two Oregon State University fraternities this week.

The Gazette-Times reports police made the two first arrests Sunday, when a Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity employee doing a walk-through heard people inside the building, which should have been vacant, and called police.

Court documents say officers stopped two people as they exited the building. They reportedly initially told police they hadn’t entered the building but police say they found footprints inside that matched theirs.

On Monday, Corvallis police went to the Chi Phi fraternity house and found one man hiding in the basement and three others hiding in a ceiling crawl space.

Each face charges including burglary, criminal mischief and theft of services.
