    Cosmetics can’t conceal illicit P-Card use

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Steward Observatory on Thursday in reference to a fraudulent charge made to a purchasing card. The officer met with an employee who reported that a $305 purchase had been made on Sept. 18 to a cosmetic company in Israel. The woman said the card was issued to the observatory and was kept in her possession unless another department member checked it out. She said the card had not been checked out at the time of the purchase. The woman also said she had emailed the company three times to inquire about reimbursing the money but no one has responded. The card was canceled and destroyed.

    Speeder checked into slammer

    A UAPD officer was on patrol near Euclid Avenue and Seneca Street around noon on Thursday when he saw a car speeding on Euclid Avenue. The officer activated the radar and clocked the car traveling at 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. He conducted a traffic stop and spoke to the driver. A records check of the driver’s license showed two warrants from the Pima County Sheriff’s Office, one for minor in possession of alcohol and the other for disorderly conduct and criminal damage. The man was arrested for the warrants and booked into Pima County Jail.

    Music melee breaks out over battling beats

    UAPD officers responded to Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday in reference to a fight that had occurred between two roommates. The officers spoke with a resident assistant, who said one of the residents had told him about a fight he had with his roommate. The resident left for class after telling the RA and the RA said he didn’t know when he would be back.

    The officers spoke to the resident’s roommate. The man told the officer he had been doing homework and listening to music through a small portable speaker that hooked up to his MP3 player. His roommate began to play his electric guitar. A few minutes later, the roommate asked the man to put in headphones because the music was distracting him from playing. The man said, “Why don’t you put in headphones instead?” The roommate knocked the speaker to the ground, which caused it to unplug from the MP3 player. The man plugged it back in and continued playing the music. The roommate began to yell at him and said, “You don’t even have friends.” The man pushed his roommate and told him to get out of his face. The roommate then picked up the man’s guitar tuner and began to play with it. The man demanded he give it back and punched his roommate’s arm a few times.

    Officers spoke to the roommate when he returned to class, who said he and the man had been friends since they were 14 years old, and they have had this type of relationship ever since. The man was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and his roommate who punched him was arrested on charges of assault. They were transported and booked into Pima County Jail. Residence Life will be making arrangements for the men to be moved to other dorms.
