    Police approached the student and asked to see some identification. The student said “”Sure”” and turned away from police when he took out his wallet.

    The student then handed police a military ID. The student said he had been at a date dash and was walking home.

    Police asked the student if he had a fake ID in his wallet. The student said, “”To be honest, I did, but I loaned it to a friend at the party, ’cause I can’t find it,”” reports stated.

    The student had slurred speech and smelled like alcohol.

    The student admitted that he had been drinking and was released, reports stated.

    A $250 upright vacuum cleaner was stolen from a custodial closet in the College of Medicine, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., sometime in December, reports stated.

    A UA employee reported the theft to police on Friday morning. The employee said he had not reported it sooner because items are misplaced from time to time, and he was hoping it would show up in another area.

    The employee said two inventories had been taken since December and the vacuum had not been found.

    The employee said the closet had been locked when the vacuum was taken from it.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

    In the e-mail the student said he was a student of the employee in 1981. The former student said he remembered the employee because she was a “”pretentious ass,”” reports stated.

    In the e-mail the former student said he now worked for the government. The former student then made comments about how awful the employee’s class had been.

    The employee told police she wanted to document the e-mail in case the former student sent others, reports stated.
