    Police Beat: Dec. 1

    Tracing issues

    A UA employee flagged down a University of Arizona Police Department officer outside of the Meinel Optical Sciences building around 1:15 p.m. on Monday. The man reported that a woman who was not affiliated with the UA had contacted him twice and made strange, concerning comments to him. The woman walked into the man’s office in the Meinel Optical Sciences building on Nov. 16 and began talking to him about a tracing chip she had implanted in her glasses. She told him he had to take a picture of it. The man said she should go to the police about it and she left. Then at 1 p.m. on Monday the woman repeated what she had said about the tracing chip and told him she had been sexually molested and that people were after her. The man told her he would call the police and she left again. The officer called the woman later that day and tried to explain that she could not contact the employee anymore. The woman said she had very important research that she had to show the man but he was being unhelpful. She told the officer not to harass her and said he couldn’t hurt her like the city police had done because he was a university police officer. The woman then hung up. The officer told the employee to notify UAPD if the woman attempted to contact him again.

    Recreational theft

    A UAPD officer spoke with a man at 11 a.m. on Monday who said his bike had been stolen from the Student Recreation Center. The man told the officer he had locked his red Schwinn mountain bike to the racks at the center using a U-Lock through the frame and front wheel at 8 a.m. on Nov. 24. When he returned at 9:45 a.m. on Monday, his bike and lock had been stolen. The man gave the officer the serial number and said the bike was registered with Parking and Transportation Services. Victim’s rights forms were given to the man.

    Cruisin’ and losin’

    A UAPD officer spoke to a woman around 3 p.m. on Monday who reported that her bike had been stolen from Navajo-Pinal Residence Hall. The woman said she locked her black and pink beach cruiser bike to the racks on the southwest side of the building at noon on Nov. 23 with a U-Lock and cable lock. When she returned on Monday, the bike and locks were gone. The bike was not registered with PTS. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.
