Brandon Ray Woods, a 34 year old man from Weatherford, Oklahoma, not only has a criminal background, but also a history of trespassing on SWOSU property and breaking into dormitories. Even though Woods has a court date on Tuesday, April 13, he continues trespassing.

On Feb. 24, he took a shower on a girls floor in Henrietta Mann Hall and was arrested by SWOSU PD on charges of trespassing and possession of amphetamine and drug paraphernalia. On Monday, March 15, he was once again arrested for breaking into Mary Mabry Savage Apartments, also known as Married Housing. He was located in a bathroom.

On Saturday, April 10, at 5:48 p.m., he was once again spotted on campus by two staff members of The Southwestern, Johannes Becht and Jordan Salamy. He wore black pants and a black shirt and was heading south towards the Student Union. Also, he had a towel over his shoulder. Considering the circumstances of his past arrests in bathrooms of SWOSU dormitories, it is likely that he just broke into a dorm again to take a shower.

SWOSU PD was immediately informed about the incident. A short time later, campus police was spotted patrolling on Campus Drive.

In the police report of the incident from Feb. 24, the SWOSU PD officer who arrested Woods stated that he recognized Woods "due to my previous interactions on campus." The report further indicated that Woods had trespassed on campus on Jan. 25, 2021.

Woods is scheduled to appear in Custer County court on Tuesday, April 13, at 9:30 a.m., according to court records. He is charged with trespassing and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. He could face up to one year in jail, also due to the fact that he has a criminal background.
