Police Beat: April 7

Business deal

A non-UA-affiliate was arrested Wednesday at 11:37 p.m. for possession of marijuana and two warrants.

University of Arizona Police Department officers were called to Coronado Residence Hall around 10:49 p.m. on Wednesday in reference to a suspicious person. The man was described as tall, thin and wearing a camouflage bucket hat.

He said he saw someone he knew near the lobby entrance who let him in, and that he was there waiting to discuss a business he was starting with someone who lived in the hall.

After identifying the man the officers discovered that he had two warrants out for his arrest. He was detained while both warrants were confirmed.

The suspect was arrested and searched. When asked if he had anything dangerous on his person, he responded by telling the officers he had marijuana and a pipe in his backpack. The suspect claimed to have a medical marijuana card but did not have it with him.

Due to the marijuana found and his warrant for narcotics the suspect was issued a six-month exclusionary order from the UA.

I left my wallet at home

A UA student was arrested Wednesday for shoplifting at the UofA Bookstore.

A staff member stated to a UAPD officer that he saw the subject on video, walk around the clothing section and pull out a purse from inside of her backpack and place two shirts in it.

The officer spoke with the subject, who claimed to have left her wallet at home. The student admitted to stealing the two shirts and said her friend had asked her to buy her one.

The student told the officer that when she told her friend that she did not have her wallet, the friend told her to just take the shirts. The student then placed the shirts in the purse and attempted to leave the bookstore.

The student was issued an exclusionary order and escorted out.
