    Police Beat: June 22

    Bonds … Patriot Bonds

    On June 17, a University of Arizona Police Department officer was dispatched to the Harvill building to receive found property. A university employee gave the officer a light blue journal that contained $800 in U.S. Patriot Bonds. The employee said she had put up notices about the found journal but withheld the information about the bonds. No one had inquired about the property. The officer attempted to contact the recipients of the bonds, but could only find an address.

    Access to world, World Wide Web denied

    A student reported to UAPD on June 17 that his laptop had been stolen from the Chemistry building. The student had left his office, with the door open, for a few minutes to do some work in a lab on a different floor. When he returned, his laptop and his backpack were missing. The backpack contained the student’s digital camera and passport. Other students said that they had seen an unknown middle-aged man wearing a brown jacket walking through the building, but he may have been a staff member. There is no further information at this time.

    Now he’s dreaming of a new cellphone

    A UAPD officer responded to a call on June 17 in the Meinel Optical Sciences building where a student said his cellphone had been stolen. The student was sleeping in a cubicle with his cellphone next to him. When he woke up, his phone was gone. The student canceled the cellphone plan and provided the phone’s serial number to the officer. There were no witnesses.

    Malicious mischief-makers make marks

    On June 16 around 2:30 a.m., a UAPD officer observed three men walking on Euclid Avenue. The men were looking behind them and in front of them as they walked as if they were watching out for something, the officer noted. Approximately 15 minutes later, one of the men stopped and wrote something on the back of a stop sign at the Second Street and Euclid Avenue. Officers stopped the three men who then identified themselves as students. They admitted to being in possession of spray paint and markers. One of the students admitted to tagging various places within the past month. He gave the officers his moniker “”Konvo”” on a piece of paper. The others admitted to tagging their monikers “”dmoney”” and “”peegay”” on several city signs and walls. The men were arrested, cited and released.
