    Joint custody

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to Coronado Residence Hall to investigate a report about the smell of marijuana coming from Room 560 on Feb. 25 at 12:08 a.m.

    The officer knocked on the door, and a woman answered claiming to be one of the occupants. When the officer questioned the smell coming from the room, she admitted smoking marijuana earlier that day somewhere off campus.

    She let the officer in the room so they could talk. She said she smoked marijuana with a glass pipe and pointed to a small, blue glass pipe lying on her roommate’s desk, who was currently in the shower. The woman also said they both owned the pipe and used it to smoke marijuana together.

    The roommate exited the shower and said the pipe was purchased at a smoke shop, and neither woman said where they got the marijuana.

    Both were diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of paraphernalia. The pipe was placed into evidence.

    Partners in crime

    A UAPD officer entered the Circle K at 1610 E. Sixth St. when he noticed a college-aged man standing in front of the store, apparently waiting for another man, who was buying a 12-pack of beer on Feb. 26 at 11:13 p.m.

    The two men met up outside the Circle K, and the officer followed them to Seventh Street where they started running westbound while the officer continued to follow them. He finally caught up with them west of the Student Recreation Center. Both men were asked for their identification.

    The two were both under the age of 21. One of the men gave the officer a fake ID, which was used to purchase the beer.

    They claimed to have purchased the alcohol to drink together in their residence hall. The man who purchased the beer said he gave the Circle K cashier his fake ID and debit card, which he provided to the officer. The other man said he was aware of all this happening and was part of it.

    The beer was poured out in the nearby dirt area, and the cans were thrown away in a garbage can. Both were diverted to the Dean of Students Office for minor in possession of alcohol.
