    UAPD is hit by a rock

    An unknown person threw a small rock at a glass window on Sunday, at about 3:30 a.m., breaking a window at the main entrance of the University of Arizona Police Department.

    At 6:23 a.m., an officer went to the main entrance of the UAPD lobby to see the criminal damage. A small, white rock appeared to be what was thrown. It was about five by three inches with a very rough surface.

    The window was a double pane; so the rock did not go all the way through, only damaging the outside glass. The entrance of the UAPD main station is surrounded by numerous 24 square inch windows like this one. The rock  was found lying on the ground about eight feet from the front door. There were also small pieces of rock on the ground that had chipped off from the impact. There were no similar rocks in the area.

    A UAPD employee reported that she heard a loud bang coming from the lobby at about 3:30 a.m. After officers checked the surveillance camera, they found no signs of criminal activity at that time. Nothing unusual was found inside of the lobby either.

    Due to the location of the window and it being dark outside, the damage was not noticed until another employee arrived to work at about 5:58 a.m.

    An officer took photos of the damaged window and UA Facilities department was contacted so that they could clean up and repair it.

    Darkness falls in the deathly hallows

    Sometime between Saturday and Monday, two white plastic light covers were broken at the UA Visitor Center. At 9:40 a.m., on Monday, a UA employee reported the light covers that light up the sidewalk on the north side of the Visitor Center were broken off the light poles. Both of the light covers were round and about the same size as basketballs. After the damage, they looked as if they had been hit with a stick. The value of them is unknown. Only one of the two light bulbs worked and both poles were intact.

    Unattended camera bag is stolen

    A camera bag that belonged to a student was reported stolen on Monday at 4 p.m.
