    Police Beat: Sept. 20

    Thief wants to cool down

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to a UA storage unit on Valencia Road near Nogales Highway on Thursday in response to a burglary. The officer met with the property caretaker who said that between Sept. 4 and Thursday, someone cut the fence on the south side of the property and broke into the storage units. The caretaker did not know who could be responsible, but told the officer that the lot had been broken into before. Six air conditioning units valued at $3,000 to $5,000 each were stolen. Someone had also stolen copper tubing from the lot. A victim’s rights form was completed and Crime Prevention was alerted about the lot to prevent future crimes.

    Laptops lifted from the Louise F. Marshall building

    A UAPD officer responded to the Louise F. Marshall building on Wednesday after a report of stolen laptops. The officer met with an employee who said he had been in the process of putting unused equipment into UA surplus when he realized two laptops were missing. The Toshiba and Trogon laptops were last seen on Sept. 1 and the total estimated value for the laptops is $3,000. The employee said the room is open to the public and does not know anyone who would have stolen or borrowed the laptops. A victim’s rights form was mailed to the UA.
