    Police Beat: April 14

    ‘Shadow’ zips off with phone

    A girl’s cell phone was stolen at the Spring Fling carnival on April 8 after giving her phone to a stranger.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer working the fair met with the 16-year-old girl about the missing phone.

    The girl said that while in line for the Zipper ride, she gave her blue Cricket cell phone to a man who called himself “”Shadow.””

    “”Shadow,”” who was wearing all black, promised the girl that he would hold on to her phone until she was off the ride.

    When the ride was over, “”Shadow”” was nowhere to be found, so the girl contacted UAPD.

    UAPD performed a search of the carnival but could not locate “”Shadow””.

    UA fights five-foot fence fetish

    For the second time this semester, holes were cut in the fence of the University of Arizona Rincon Vista Sports Complex.

    The damage was reported to UAPD on April 11 at 1:05 p.m.

    A UAPD officer responded to the location and made contact with a UA employee who showed the officer the two holes in the southwest corner of the fence.

    Each opening was about 5 feet in length, one of them on Winsett Street, and one on Plumer Avenue.

    It is still unknown when the damage occurred, but to have been during the weekend of April 8.

    UA facilities management personnel attached wire clips to the fence to temporarily close the holes until full repairs could be made.

    When taking pictures of the damages, the officer found footprints next to the cut section of the fence.

    The photos were placed into UAPD property as evidence.

    Good Samaritan gets phone stolen

    A UA student’s cell phone was stolen in the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center by a man he had lent his phone to on April 8.

    An unknown man approached the student in the ILC and asked to borrow his cell phone.

    Although the student said that he thought the man to be homeless, he allowed him to use his cell phone because he had seen the man several times in the ILC before.

    Within a few minutes, the student could no longer see him in or around the ILC. He began to look for the man but, after an hour of searching, called UAPD to report the theft.

    The student told officers that he wishes to press charges if the suspect is apprehended.
