Tobacco bong

A University of Arizona Police Department officer investigated the smell of marijuana in Villa del Puente Residence Hall outside of Room 315 on April 14 at 7:11 p.m.

The officer asked the occupant if he knew why there was a marijuana smell coming from his room, and he said he did not. He claimed to live in the room and consented to a room search.

There was a small amount of marijuana inside a metal grinder. A glass bong present did not have any marijuana. The student said he used the bong for smoking tobacco.

The officer told the student he would be diverted through the Dean of Students Office. The grinder and marijuana were kept as evidence, and the bong was stored as given-up property.

Work for fire

A UA employee in the Arizona Student Unions operations department was catering an event in the Grand Ballroom when she noticed her phone was missing on April 16 at 4:30 p.m.

The woman she set her phone down inside the ballroom at 12:30 p.m. and noticed it was missing at 1:40 p.m. None of her coworkers saw her phone or knew where it went.

The officer was informed that the operations department hired 13 temporary employees through the staff agency Allstaff Services. The woman told the officer she had a tracking device on her phone, but it was turned off. When the phone was turned on again, the tracker showed the phone was at the intersection of Park Avenue and Speedway Boulevard.

Two employees from the same department went to the area and said they saw a man hired by Allstaff Services walking out of the Circle K with the woman’s phone.

The woman said her phone was a Samsung 3 worth about $150. The two men retrieved the phone peacefully from the man who took it. The woman did not want to press charges but said the suspect was not going to work at the student union anymore.
