    Police Beat: March 23

    Paraphernalia stashed in Louis Vuitton

    On March 13 at 1:21 p.m., an off-duty University of Arizona Police Department officer noticed a woman on a bicycle, to whom he gave an exclusionary order a week prior near the Modern Languages building.

    When the officer asked if her name was the same as the woman’s he had banned from campus, she said, “”No,”” and started to walk away from the officer.

    The officer stopped the woman again and, after confirming her name, arrested her for criminal trespassing.

    The woman told the officer she knew she was not supposed to be on campus but was “”cutting through to get to Speedway (Boulevard).””

    On the North side of the Education building, the woman was searched and placed into the back of the officer’s patrol car.

    Inside the woman’s green Louis Vuitton purse, the officer found a blue straw four inches long and four aluminum foil sheets with black residue on them.

    The woman said she used the foil to smoke Oxycodone and used the straw to snort it. The last time she had smoked or snorted Oxycodone had been a week ago.

    After finding the items in her purse, the woman was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and transported to Pima County Jail.

    Once at the jail, another officer told the UAPD officer that they had found credit cards in her belongings that were not hers.

    The bicycle she had been riding, the straw and the aluminum foil were all placed into property.

    Victim’s rights were sent to the owner of the credit cards.

    Creeper’s creepy cleaning

    A woman flagged down a UAPD officer on March 17 at 5:15 p.m. at the U-Mart in the Student Union Memorial Center.

    The woman was in a wheelchair and told the officer that earlier in the day, at 2:45 p.m., she was leaving a bathroom and was approached by a man who asked, “”Can I help you?””

    The woman said the man walked her to the Starbucks inside the UA Bookstore and bought her a coffee.

    The man then walked her to her residence hall and entered the hall with her. He also followed her to her room on the first floor and went inside with her.

    Once inside the room, the man told the woman her pants were dirty — that she should change them.

    She went inside the bathroom to change her pants, and the man followed her inside. She told him to get out of the bathroom, and he did.

    When she got out of the bathroom, she tried to tidy her room because it was messy and started to pick up clothing items as well.

    The woman reported becoming uncomfortable and wanting the man to leave but didn’t know how to ask him.

    The man told the woman that her shirt was dirty and she should change that too. When she took her hat off, the man said her hair was dirty and asked her if he could wash it for her. She told him “”No.””

    He then said, “”Your face is dirty, I’ll wash it for you.”” The woman said she would do it herself, and after wiping her face off with a cloth, she handed it to him to throw away, and he began wiping her face with it.

    The woman said she was uncomfortable and told the man that she had to go.

    The man walked with her and told her that he had seen her around campus before and was a graduate student.

    The police officer told the woman that if she sees the man again, she should call UAPD immediately.


    A UAPD officer stopped a man on a bicycle on Wednesday at 11:21 p.m. after he refused to stop for a police aide at Old Main.

    The police aide had seen the man doing tricks on his BMX bike, and, when she tried to stop him, he rode away toward Campbell Avenue and University Boulevard.

    While the UAPD officer was talking with the man, he could smell alcohol on his breath and noticed the man had bloodshot eyes.

    The man said he had a few sips of beer given to him by his friend at Maloney’s at 213 N. Fourth Ave.

    The man was arrested for underage drinking. He was cited and released to his brother.

    The man was also warned for trespassing and was told if he was stopped again, he could be arrested.

    The bicycle the man had been riding was placed into UAPD property.
