    Two 17-year-old females were arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana in the 1000 block of East Caddie Street March 13.

    The girls were sitting in a parked vehicle facing a wash with the windows down when an officer on bike patrol spotted them around 4:30 p.m.

    As the officer approached the vehicle, he smelled a strong odor of marijuana.

    One of the girls requested that the officer search her purse because a man named Jonathan may have placed the marijuana in her purse. The officer found two baggies of marijuana.

    A second officer called to assist the search, and found a small plastic container with marijuana in the second girl’s purse.

    The officers also found two glass pipes and a homemade “”blowtube”” made out of a toilet paper roll that was used to smoke marijuana.

    The girls denied ownership of any of the paraphernalia and drugs and also denied smoking marijuana.

    One officer said he could smell marijuana odor coming from the girls’ mouths. One girl said her breath smelled like marijuana because she was previously kissing a boy who had smoked marijuana.

    The mother of one girl and the father of the other girl were contacted, and they came to pick up their daughters.

    Both girls were cited and released to their parents.

    She said the department thought risk management staff took the computer for repairs, but they did not have it.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A student reported his vehicle broken into between around 2 p.m. and around 9 p.m. March 4.

    The vehicle, a blue 2004 Chevrolet, was parked at the Cherry Avenue Parking Garage, 1641 E. Enke Drive, when someone broke the front grill outward and removed the battery and the alarm.

    The student said the driver’s-side door lock was punched out and more than $10,000 in items and equipment was stolen.

    Items included amplifiers, speakers, an iPod, a DVD player and sunglasses.

    The student said he had all the serial numbers from the electronic equipment, and he would contact UAPD when he found them.
