    Two students were cited and released for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia Nov. 13 at Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, 922 E. Fourth St., at 10:10 p.m., reports stated.

    When police arrived at the residence hall, the smell of marijuana was strong near three doors in one of the halls. A resident assistant knocked on the door where the smell was strongest. People were heard moving around inside, and a male voice said, “”Hold on a minute.”” Police and the RA then heard what sounded like tape being pulled off the door.

    The male opened the door and allowed police to enter the room. The other male was watching a cartoon and eating out of a plastic bowl. A wad of duct tape was in a waste basket. An officer said that the tape had not worked; one of the men said, “”I know.””

    The resident of the room gave police a glass pipe and plastic bag with burnt and fresh marijuana inside from underneath a bed sheet. The man also gave police a Gatorade bottle with wet paper towels they used to blow smoke into.

    The other man said the marijuana came from his room down the hall. Police did not find anything when they searched the room.

    A Parking and Transportation Services parking meter was found broken Nov. 14 at lot 2030, 1224 N. Martin Ave., at 2:54 p.m., reports stated.

    The PTS employee said it appeared as though a vehicle had run over the $318.50 meter. Police did not find any vehicles in the area with damage related to the incident.

    A Honda Civic was stolen from lot 4052, 1051 N. Vine Ave., between 10:30 a.m. Nov. 10 and 1:30 p.m. Nov. 11, reports stated.

    The man said when he returned to the lot to pick up his car, it was gone. He initially assumed that the car had been towed because of the Arizona football game. Since the man did not need the car immediately, he waited until Nov. 14 to call PTS. PTS reported that they had not towed the man’s car.

    The man said he was in possession of all of the keys to the vehicle and did not know anyone who would steal his car. Police did not find any evidence when they checked the area where the car had been parked.

    The vehicle was recorded in the National Crime Investigation Center system.

    Five white envelopes were found Nov. 14 near the University of Arizona Police Department, 1852 E. First. St., at 4:27 p.m., reports stated.

    A backpack was stolen from a truck Nov. 14 in lot 2025, 1110 N. Cherry Ave., between 10:15 a.m. and 5 p.m., reports stated.

    When the owner returned to his vehicle he noticed his key was not working in the driver’s side door lock. The man said he then realized that the lock had been partially punched and that was why his key was inserting at an angle. Police said the damage to the lock was done with a screw driver.

    Several expensive items had been left in the truck. The only thing taken was the man’s backpack which contained a padlock and key, swim goggles, bath towel, swim trunks and a nylon swim cap.

    There are no suspects or witnesses.
