    Police Beat: April 5

    Finding gold

    During an Easter egg hunt at Hillenbrand Aquatic Center at 9 a.m. on March 30, a child found a marijuana pipe while looking for the “golden egg,” according to police records.

    The event was hosted for family members of the aquatic center’s team members. A “golden egg” was hidden in a small pouch near the diving area.

    The child then found the pouch with both the egg and the pipe inside.

    A coach of the team informed a staff member, who wasn’t present during the incident, of what happened before securing the item in a locker.

    The staff member notified the University of Arizona Police Department of the paraphernalia discovered at the pool at 9:18 a.m. on April 2.

    The pipe was taken into UAPD for property and evidence, and there are currently no suspected owners of the pipe.

    Things that go bump in the night

    UAPD officers spoke with a UA student regarding her well-being, after a suicidal comment she made due to noises her roommate and roommate’s boyfriend made that woke her up, at 4:35 p.m. on April 1.

    The student’s resident assistant reported that earlier the student said she wanted to kill herself. UAPD officers then met with the woman, who was upset at her roommate for having her boyfriend overnight.

    The student told her RA and not her roommate, because she feared her roommate might tamper with her side of the room if confronted.

    The woman then showed the officers text messages regarding their disagreement.

    She told police she wasn’t suicidal, had never attempted suicide and was afraid of death, before police decided she wasn’t a danger to herself or others.

    The student said she would contact Residence Life about possible room relocation and police documented the roommate’s text conversation into property and evidence.

    Coachella or bust

    A UA student reported his stolen Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival wristband from Hopi Lodge Residence Hall at 6:15 p.m. on April 2.

    The student had left his Coachella wristband in the box he received it in, which was located in his room. The wristband was stolen between 1:45 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.

    The band was described as yellow, with a shark depiction and the word “Coachella.”

    The student believed the wristband had a “chip” linking it to a purchaser, which would provide him with a serial number. The student said he would obtain that information and contact police again. There are currently no suspects or witnesses.
