    Egregious misspelling of curb?

    Two road signs in Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage were vandalized with graffiti on Thursday at 9:29 a.m., a UA employee reported.

    The employee called the University of Arizona Police Department first, but said another individual had already reported the graffiti to Parking and Transportation Services at around the same time.

    The graffiti read “”KERB”” in black marker, with a design along it. The UA employee was not able to clean the graffiti off the signs so he had to replace both of them with new ones, each valued at $100.

    Grinder? Oh, I though you meant my sandwich

    A student was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia on Friday at 12:30 a.m.

    A UAPD officer went to the student’s dorm room that night at 11:52 p.m. after the resident assistant reported that he could smell marijuana coming from that room.

    The RA took the officer to the student’s room, where they talked. The student told the officer that he did not smoke any marijuana that night, though he had a grinder that he used for it.

    The student pulled out a silver-colored grinder from his desk drawer and handed it to the officer. There was a leafy residue that resembled freshly cultivated marijuana inside of it.

    The student gave the officer permission to search his side of the room, which he shared with another student. The officer found Zig-Zag rolling papers in the top drawer of his desk as well as several empty cans of Four Loko in his room.

    The student was cited and released at the scene for possession of drug paraphernalia. The grinder and rolling papers were taken into property as evidence.

    Of course it belonged to ‘some random guy’

    Two students were arrested for possession and use of marijuana on Halloween at 8 p.m.

    An officer was on foot patrol near Highland Commons when he noticed two men smoking as they sat in a far, concealed corner. As he approached the men, he smelled marijuana. The smell got stronger as he walked toward them. When the officer was about ten feet in front of the two, they quickly hid what they were smoking. The officer approached the table and noticed a small wooden container. It resembled the marijuana containers he had seen in previous cases. He asked the men if he could see it, and they said yes.

    The officer opened it and noticed there was an unusable amount of marijuana on the inside of the container. It smelled strongly of the drug.  

    He also observed that the small “”one hit pipe,”” which is a smoking device usually kept inside this type of container, was missing. He asked the two men if they had it. One of them held it out to the officer, and the officer noticed marijuana residue on it. Both of the items were confiscated and submitted to UAPD as property and evidence. The pipe was sent away for testing to confirm that the resin was actually marijuana.

    One man said that the wooden container belonged to “”some random guy,”” and did not provide a name or location for this person. The officer arrested the two men for possession and use of marijuana and paraphernalia and they were released at the scene.

    Silver and green? Better off stolen

    A student reported that her bicycle was stolen from the bike racks on the north side of the Physics and Atmospheric Sciences building on Thursday at about 11:07 p.m.

    She told the police she had locked her bicycle to the racks that day at 5:30 p.m. and when she returned it was gone. Her bike is silver and green, but she said that since it was so old she did not have any record of a serial number.
