    Flandrau window damages caught on camera

    An alarm was sounded at the Phoenix Mission Building in the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium on Sixth Avenue on Tuesday at 10:11 p.m.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the audible alarm at 10:19 p.m.

    Upon arrival, the officer inspected the exterior of the building.

    The officer found two four-by-five dual pane glass windows with high-speed impact damage on the north side of the building.

    The officer noticed that it seemed that the windows were struck with a BB or slingshot.

    Only the outer pane of glass was damaged, but the inside pane was still intact.

    Two more windows on the east side of the building also had damage.

    The officer checked the inside of the building and found everything in apparent order.

    No evidence was found around the exterior of the building pertaining to any suspect.

    The officer found a security camera on the northwest corner of the building and plans to follow up with the footage.

    Screaming student slugs solid structure

    UAPD officers responded to Coronado Residence Hall concerning an intoxicated male UA student threatening people on Friday at 2:05 a.m.

    The officers arrived to the dorm and went up to the ninth floor where the man was reported to be.

    An officer spoke with a witness on the ninth floor who heard a man yelling from a room and went in the hall to investigate.

    A male UA student missing his shirt was standing down the hall in front of a room yelling at its occupants.

    The witness told the student to leave. The student then punched the wall.

    The officer spoke with other officers and advised them that the suspected student may have injuries that are undetectable due to his intoxication.

    The officers went to check the student’s room, but it was locked.

    A Residence Life employee was able to get keys to the room and the officers searched for the student without result.

    An officer returned to the room where the student was observed yelling and spoke to its residents.

    The residents said the student came in the room and started yelling about selling drugs.

    The residents were unsure if they were being threatened because the student was yelling incoherently.

    The residents said they did not want to press charges.

    The suspected student was referred to the Dean of Students Office.

    Unsuccessful snack run

    A UAPD officer was dispatched to Highland Market about a shoplifting student on Jan. 28 at 3:04 a.m.

    Another officer was already on the scene and had apprehended the suspect.

    The officer interviewed a Highland Market employee and heard that the staff asked the student to leave because the student was too intoxicated.

    The student returned later and proceeded to the back of the store.

    He talked on his cell phone while opening bags of chips and eating them.

    The chips could no longer be sold because they had been opened, but the student put them back on the shelf.

    Security cameras are located throughout the store, and all footage was given to UAPD.

    “”Yeah, I should have paid for it before I ate the chips,”” the student said.

    The student was intoxicated but was coherent enough to make rational decisions.

    The student was cited and released for shoplifting at 3:22 a.m., and took a yellow cab home.

    He was also referred to the Dean of Students Office.
