Third time’s the charm

University of Arizona Police Department officers went to Rawls Eller Lodge on Oct. 12 following a report of a marijuana odor coming from a room in the residence hall. It was the same room from two previous calls in the past two weeks. When the officers arrived and went to the room they could smell a slight odor of marijuana outside the room.

They knocked, and when the door opened, the smell grew stronger. When the room’s resident saw the officers, he threw his arms up and said that they were not smoking marijuana in the room and said the officers could come in. 

The man had been arrested two times before for marijuana or paraphernalia. 

The officer told the man that they were there because of the smell of marijuana, not because someone was smoking it. The resident said he had marijuana and when the officer asked he took out a baggie of it. 

The man was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail. 

Not so suite 

UAPD officers responded to a report of theft and criminal damage at Apache Residence Hall on Oct. 11. One resident was reporting issues with her suitemate. The resident said her suitemate had been verbally harassing her since the day of the UA vs. Washington State football game and made a Facebook post calling her names. 

The resident said her suitemate had been uncomfortable with her bringing men into the room. The resident confronted the suitemate about the Facebook post, and the suitemate is now in the process of moving out. 

The resident said that some of her stuff, including a Bose speaker charger and body mist, is missing, while other things have been damaged, such as two pairs of shoe laces being cut and an iPhone charging cable appearing to be cut. 

The resident thought it was the suitemate because of their disagreement, but when officers talked to the suitemate, she denied damaging or stealing the resident’s property. The resident wants to press charges for her damaged material.
