    Police Beat: October 23

    Bumper gets banged up bad

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a traffic accident at the Park Avenue Parking Garage at 12:50 p.m. on Oct. 18.

    When the officer arrived, a man informed him that his silver Buick had been damaged between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 12:55 p.m. When he looked closer, the officer saw that the man’s rear bumper had been damaged and was dangling from the back.

    The man’s car was parked near the end of a row in the garage while the man was on campus, and it looked like the damage had been caused by another vehicle sideswiping it going around a bend.

    The man said that when he returned to his car at 12:55 p.m., no note had been left to apologize or acknowledge the accident. While there are currently no suspects, the victim said he would pursue judicial measures.

    Stash of found items turned in

    A UAPD officer responded to the UA Main Library about a claim of found property at 8:07 a.m. on Oct. 18.

    When the officer arrived, he met with a UA employee to pick up several items that had been collected over the past few days, including an man’s Arizona driver’s license, three calculators, two cellphones and two sets of keys.

    In addition, a UA student’s leather wallet containing a CatCard, driver’s license and debit card as well as medical and State Farm insurance cards had been found. The owner of the wallet was emailed, and one of the cellphones has since been claimed.

    The owners of the remaining items are still unknown, and UAPD has taken the items into its possession as property and evidence.

    Laptop long gone

    A UAPD officer received a report of a stolen laptop at Villa Del Puente residence hall at 8:17 on Oct. 18.

    The laptop was last seen a week prior in the VDP lounge.

    The man who owned the laptop returned two days after he last saw his laptop, on Oct. 13, to check with front desk assistants, but nothing had been reported.

    The owner said he did not know the laptop’s serial number, but would relay any further information he learned. The victim said he wanted to pursue further judicial proceedings if a suspect was found.
