    Police Beat: November 9

    A sketchy smell

    A female student was arrested on charges of possessing 4.2 grams of marijuana at Posado San Pedro residence hall at 11:05 p.m. on Nov. 3. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded when a resident assistant reported the odor of marijuana seeping from the girl’s room. As the officer approached the woman’s dorm room and knocked on the door, he too noted the strong scent of marijuana.

    Upon entering her room, the officer told the woman why he had come, and asked to look around. The woman said the officer could look anywhere he wanted. When the officer asked the student if he was going to find marijuana, she replied, “There might be some left.” The woman then grabbed a bag from under her bed that had two lighters and two bags with marijuana inside, and told the officer he could search it.

    The officer asked the woman where she had gotten the marijuana. The student replied that she had gotten it from a friend, adding that her friend had bought the marijuana for $30, but decided to leave it in her room. The student said that she had smoked it in the room. The officer asked how often she smokes, and the woman said a few times a month.

    The marijuana was placed in property and evidence, and the student was cited and released on charges of possession of marijuana and referred to the Dean of Students for a code of conduct.

    Lock it up

    A UA student was cited and released on charges of minor in possession at Villa Del Puente residence hall at 1:10 a.m. on Nov. 4. The officer was observing foot traffic in the Highland Avenue area when he spotted a man having difficulty locking his bike near the south side of the residence hall. After about four attempts, he leaned the bike against the bike rack and walked away.

    “Aren’t you going to lock it up?” the officer asked. The student replied, “Oh yeah,” then staggered back toward his bike, successfully locking it this time, before walking away again. The officer approached the man on a UAPD golf cart, detecting a moderate smell of alcohol. The officer asked the man for identification and his age. The subject said he was 19, and that his wallet was in Coronado residence hall.

    The student said he’d had a “Four Loko” earlier, in addition to a few beers, but wouldn’t specify how many. He declined to recognize any Greek affiliation, adding he didn’t know who’d gotten the alcohol or where he drank off-campus. The student did say the one who bought the alcohol was 21, however. The officer then cited and released the man for charges of minor in possession, and had him complete a Student Code of Conduct form.
