    Office break-in, laptops snatched

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the Marley building on Tuesday in response to a report of a theft from one of the offices. The officer met with an employee, who said the office she shares with four other people had been broken into over the weekend. She said she left her office and locked the door around 4 p.m. on Sept. 28. When she and her coworkers returned to the office Tuesday morning, they noticed some items missing. Among the missing items were two laptops that contained “expensive graphic software” and a cordless Panasonic telephone. The value of the laptops and phone is unknown, but the employee estimated the software was worth $1,000 on each computer. The employee was confident that other staff had not borrowed the items. A student who worked for the employee told her he had seen a telephone like the one missing on a bench near the building on Sept. 30. The officer contacted the video surveillance company Amer-X, who said they would review the footage and contact UAPD with the results later. A victim’s rights form was mailed to the UA.

    Lock, shock and one empty parking spot

    A UAPD officer went to a UA parking lot on Fremont Avenue on Tuesday around 7:40 p.m. in response to a theft. The office met with a student who said she had parked and locked her car in the lot at 7 p.m. on Oct. 2. When she returned Tuesday evening, her car was gone. She walked all around the lots in the area to be sure, but could not find her car. The woman said she had a permit from Parking and Transportation Services and always parked her car in that lot. No one else had keys to the car except herself and her parents, who live in Gilbert, Ariz., she said. The woman filled out a victim’s rights form and a stolen vehicle agreement.

    The robbery pain falls mainly in Old Main

    A UAPD officer spoke on Tuesday to a UA employee who said items had been taken from his office in Old Main. The man said a black laptop bag containing a computer mouse and jump drive had been stolen. He said he believed the theft took place between Sept. 21 and Sept. 30. The man estimated the total cost of the items to be around $80 to $100. He said a coworker of his also had items stolen from him the same day, but the man had already filed a separate case report. Victim’s rights forms were mailed to the man’s office.
