INDIANAPOLIS – Police at IUPUI say they’ve received information that someone tried to sell date rape drugs on campus.

As a result, they’re reminding people around IUPUI and the Indiana University community to be alert as the weekend approaches. Police say everyone should be mindful of their surroundings and be wary of drinks handed to them by people they don’t know.

They’re also asking people to watch out for  their friends and monitor their conditions.

Several drugs can be slipped into drinks easily, leading to unconsciousness and loss of memory. They’re typically odorless, colorless and difficult to detect in most beverages.

The department outlines the following tips:

  • Don’t accept drinks from people you don’t know.
  • Don’t drink from a container you didn’t open yourself.
  • Don’t leave your drink unattended.
  • If you or your friend seem more intoxicated than what the amount of alcohol consumed would warrant seek medical attention.
