    Police Beat: February 5

    Off on the wrong foot

    A man was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and having an outstanding warrant while near Sixth Street and Campbell Avenue at 11:15 a.m. on Jan. 30.

    The University of Arizona Police Department noticed the man’s Chrysler Aspen traveling 51 mph in a 35 mph zone.

    Police then conducted a traffic stop on the driver. The man said he was aware of his suspended license but was traveling to the hospital to have his “slightly swollen” foot examined.

    A records check confirmed the man’s suspended license, in addition to a warrant from the Department of Public Safety. The driver was then arrested for both the warrant and the new charge of driving
    with a suspended license.

    He was transported to Pima County Jail and his vehicle was towed.

    Cat (Card) Burglar

    A UA student reported that his CatCard was stolen while at Highland Market at 8:39 p.m. on Jan. 31.

    The student said he’d last seen his card at Yavapai Residence Hall at 5 p.m. the day prior. The man was unsure where it had gone, but had “retraced his steps” and checked his pockets.

    He then went to the CatCard office to report the missing item and was informed it had been used. This transaction occurred at Highland Market at 6:45 p.m. on Jan. 30.

    The man said he doesn’t want to pursue criminal charges, but did want to report the activity to have his money refunded. The officer then told the student to obtain a copy of his CatCard activity and provide it to UAPD for evidence.

    Swiped Schwinn

    A non-UA affiliate reported that his red bike had been stolen from outside the Education building at 12:16 p.m. on Jan. 30.

    UAPD spoke with the man via telephone, who said he’d secured his Schwinn mountain bike on a bike rack on the east side of the building at 11 a.m.

    Upon returning to the area at 12:15 p.m., both the bike and lock cable had been stolen. He valued the bike at $400.

    The man was able to provide a serial number for the bike and it was entered into the National Crime Information Center. A victim’s rights form was then filled and mailed to the man. There are no suspects or witnesses.
