    Police Beat

    An officer responded to a call of a theft in progress at the Alpha Phi sorority house, 1339 E. First St., at 3:06 a.m. April 10.

    A witness told police that he saw a white male with curly hair carrying what looked like a large sign and walking westbound on East Second Street from North Mountain Avenue.

    Police found a male matching the description on East Second Street and North Olive Road.

    When police asked the man for identification, he said he didn’t have any on him, but gave his name and said he was a student.

    Near the student was a composite photograph of all Alpha Phi members from 1991-1992.

    The student said one of his Beta Theta Pi fraternity brothers dared him to take the photo.

    The student said he escorted a drunk sorority girl to the Alpha Phi house and then went upstairs and “”made out”” with her. When he was leaving the house, he took the photo that was hanging on the wall near the front door.

    The officer talked with the sorority house mother and she declined to press charges.

    The student was referred to the Dean of Students Office for violating the code of conduct. Police returned the photo to the Alpha Phi sorority house.

    A female student reported her vehicle was broken into at parking lot 2147, 1231 N. Cherry Ave., at 1:39 p.m. April 9.

    The student said she parked her white 1995 Honda Civic in the parking lot around 10 a.m. and returned at 1:30 p.m. to discover the passenger window was broken. She looked around her vehicle and noticed the rearview mirror was missing.

    The student’s parking pass was attached to the rearview mirror at the time of the theft.

    Police told the student to contact Parking and Transportation Services to inform them of the stolen parking pass.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A female student reported her vehicle was stolen from the Alpha Phi sorority parking lot, 1339 E. First St., at 9:30 p.m. April 9.

    The student said she saw her red 2005 soft-top Jeep Wrangler parked outside around 6:30 p.m. She said the vehicle was locked, although the top was not attached to the vehicle.

    At 9:30 p.m., she saw her vehicle was missing. She verified that none of her friends had the vehicle.

    She told the officer that one of her sorority sisters had a set of spare keys, but that she was at home with the keys so she could not have taken the car.

    The student said she didn’t have any troubles with anyone and didn’t think any of her friends were playing a practical joke on her.

    She also said the vehicle was completely paid off so there was no way it could have been repossessed.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A female student reported that her vehicle was vandalized in Zone 1 parking lot 2001, 1503 E. Chauncey Lane, sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. April 10.

    The student parked her 2001 Ford Supercrew pickup truck and went to class. When she returned, she noticed the tailgate of her truck was missing.

    Police have no witnesses or suspects.

    UAPD assisted Tucson Police Department on a report of three males with guns at 821 E. Mabel St. at 5:41 p.m. April 10.

    Upon arrival, police noticed one male on the roof of the building with a rifle. An officer drew his gun and helped secure the south side of the house as other officers moved to the north side of the house.

    TPD officers told UAPD that they had one subject on the north side of the roof, and he had dropped the rifle. The UAPD officer pointed his gun at the man on the roof as TPD secured the inside of the house and other officers secured the roof.

    Police entered the house after it was cleared, re-holstered the gun and stood around as TPD questioned the subjects.

    One man identified himself and said he just bought a new pellet gun air rifle and was on the roof trying to set the sight.
