    College chases down criminal credit charges

    An unknown person used a College of Architecture department credit card on two different websites on Dec. 16.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer reported to the College of Architecture to meet with a manager.

    The manger wanted to report two fraudulent charges on the credit card. The manager was advised by Chase Bank, who placed a hold on two charges.

    One was for “”Vender US-WEB”” and another for “”Huddle-London.”” The total charges attempted were around $330.

    The charges were flagged by the bank as suspicious, so the charges did not go through and were cancelled.

    The credit card was destroyed and the number deactivated.

    On Jan. 13 a female UA student filed a police report stating that her purse was stolen.

    The student said that she was at Sigma Chi on Jan. 11 and left her purse on the couch in the living room.

    The student asked the residents of the house about the whereabouts of her belongings and no one knew what happened to her things.

    Woman’s wallet stolen during memorial service

    A non UA-affiliated woman reported that her wallet was stolen from McKale Center after the “”Together We Thrive”” memorial service on Jan. 12.

    The woman reported to police on Jan. 13 that she was missing her wallet after the service. She did not notice her missing wallet until leaving the event.

    The woman was not allowed back into McKale Center to find her wallet for security reasons.

    Since losing the wallet the night before, the woman’s bank reported that three fraudulent charges had been made.

    There are no suspects in the theft.

    “”Do you want to tell me about the marijuana?””

    A UAPD officer cited two male UA students and a San Francisco State University student at Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall at 7:55 p.m., for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    At 7:14 p.m., marijuana smoke was reportedly coming from one of the rooms in Kaibab.

    The UAPD officer found the room where the smoke was coming from and asked the subjects if they had any idea why he was outside their room.

    Both students denied any knowledge.

    The officer asked, “”Do you want to tell me about the marijuana?”” One of the students told the officer that there was more marijuana in the room.

    The officer asked one of the men to speak with him in the hall. He told the officer that he was visiting from out of town.

    The man was a resident of California and told the officer that he knew it was illegal to smoke marijuana in Arizona.

    The officer then interrogated the two UA students.

    The officer found out that the marijuana was purchased from an unknown UA student and that the students were smoking with the vaporizer found in the room.

    The officer confiscated the marijuana and vaporizer from the room.

    The three were cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. All three were released upon their promise to appear in court.
