Not Your Average Lunch Break

On June 29, the University of Arizona Police Department received a report of two women sitting in a car on the third level of Main Gate Garage smoking marijuana.

When two UAPD officers arrived and questioned the two women in the reported vehicle, the women appeared to be fumbling with unknown items on the floor in the two front seats. When one UAPD officer questioned the passenger side woman, she appeared nervous and said she and the other woman had only been chatting in the car. She said they worked at the Aveda Institute on University Boulevard and were on a break. The woman then admitted that she and the other woman had been smoking marijuana, according to UAPD.

The officer searched the vehicle and found multiple prescription bottles with marijuana inside, a pink glass pipe and a lighter; all of which contained marijuana residue. Both women were cited and released for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

A Mysterious Slasher

At approximately 8:30 p.m., a UAPD officer responded to the UA Main Library in reference to a report of criminal damage to a bicycle tire and tube on June 26.

A homeless man said he parked his bicycle at the racks at the north end of the library at 9 a.m. The man said he only used the wifi and stayed by the vending machines so he wouldn’t bother anyone.

When the man returned to his bike at approximately 7 p.m., he noticed the tire was flat. Because of heavy rain, the man did not check the rest of the bike. When he returned after the rain had ended, the man said he noticed a hole in his bike tire approximately two inches long.

According to UAPD, the man said he didn’t know anyone who would want to damage his bike. He said he believed it was possible that someone who did not want him to come to campus to use the wifi could have damaged his bike.

There was no suspect and there were no cameras facing the bicycle racks.
