    Stolen stereo

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house at 9 a.m. on Tuesday in response to a theft. The officer met with a man who said his green Ford Bronco had been broken into between midnight and 8:55 a.m. The passenger side window had been broken and the man’s JVC stereo was missing. The man said he had not left anything else in his car and nothing else was stolen. He estimated the cost of his stereo was $200. The man said he wishes to prosecute if the person is found. Victim’s rights forms were given to the man.

    Damaged car

    A UAPD officer went to the Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority house at 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday in response to a theft. The officer met with a woman who reported that her black Hummer had been damaged between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. that morning. The damage on the car appeared to be old road damage. There was a 1-inch gouge on the passenger side fender. The officer noticed the car was covered in dust when he arrived, which he said he believed indicated the damage was not done recently. The woman, a kitchen manager, said she thought an employee in the kitchen who had recently been fired may have damaged her car in retaliation. There was no evidence indicating the employee damaged the car. Victim’s rights forms were given to the woman.
