    She’s just not that into you

    A man seeking to start a relationship with a female UA student made several harassing phone calls around 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

    The student contacted a University of Arizona Police Department officer and said that she received four phone calls from a man she did not know.

    The officer asked the student how the man may have gotten her phone number.

    She said she had given out her number to employers throughout the year, and that could be how the man got her number.

    “”Are you a white girl or a career-orientated black girl?”” asked the man in his first phone call.

    The student didn’t respond to the second and third phone calls.

    “”Hey baby, don’t hang up on me,”” the man said in the last phone call.

    The student realized she had never told the man to not contact her.

    The officer called the number and talked to the man at 12:09 p.m.

    The officer asked why the man was calling the student in the first place.

    The man explained that it sounded like the student wanted to continue in a relationship.

    The officer told the man that the student was not interested and that if the man were to call again he would face the possibility of arrest at the student’s discretion.

    The man agreed to not call again.

    Modern Languages mystery

    An unknown man walked off with a DVD player and projector remote from the Modern Languages building around 4:20 p.m. on Tuesday.

    A UAPD officer responded to a call made by a female UA student about the suspicious male.

    The student was in the room when the man took the items.

    While in the room, she noticed the man unplugging the DVD player.

    “”Is there a class coming up?”” the student asked.

    “”Not for a while,”” the man responded.

    The man then walked out of the classroom with the DVD player in hand, the student said.

    She gave the officer a detailed description of what the man was wearing.

    The student said that the man looked as if he could have been a graduate student, but did not recognize him.

    The officer conducted a building search but did not find the suspect.

    Belligerent Bookstore burglar

    A male UA student stole a hat from the UofA Bookstore around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

    Bookstore Loss Prevention contacted a UAPD officer to come to speak with the student who was in custody.

    The bookstore employee told the officer that the student had taken the tags off the hat and wore it through the store.

    The student then bought all of the items in his possession except for the hat.

    The officer asked the student what happened in the bookstore.

    The student did not want to steal or shoplift the hat. Instead, the student explained that he was stupid and that he had used bad judgment because he drank two beers before shopping.

    He was cited for shoplifting and released. The student was also referred to the Dean of Students Office.

    Tuesday is a good day to lose things

    On Tuesday alone, seven different lost items were placed into UAPD custody.

    Of the items lost, three of them were backpacks, one of which contained a glass water pipe with marijuana residue.

    UAPD also placed a bracelet and two wallets into custody.

    UAPD then placed an unlocked bike, found at the Electrical and Computer Engineering building, into custody.
