    Police Beat

    A man was arrested for a warrant from the Marana Police Department when the vehicle he was riding in was stopped, reports stated.

    A wanted person was associated with the vehicle’s license plate number and an officer stopped the vehicle near the intersection of North Country Club Road and East Bellevue Street at 3:45 a.m. Jan. 5.

    The driver gave police a passport and she said she did not have her driver’s license with her.

    A records check showed her license was suspended and the passenger in her car had a warrant for failing to appear in court.

    Police found a .22 caliber revolver and a clear baggie with bullets behind the driver’s seat of the vehicle. The driver and passenger said the gun did not belong to either of them.

    The woman was cited for driving with a suspended license and the man was arrested and booked into Pima County Jail. The gun and bullets were placed into safekeeping for the owner.

    Two men had their bicycles impounded and one man fled from police at the Modern Languages building, 1423 E. University Blvd., at about 10 p.m. Jan. 5, reports stated.

    Police aides took the names of a man who was doing skateboard tricks and two men doing bicycle tricks near the building.

    The man with the skateboard ran from the area after hearing that he had a warrant for his arrest. Police searched for the man but did not find him.

    The other two men said they didn’t know him well and did not know where he lived.

    Both men had been previously warned for trespassing on university property and for doing bicycle tricks at the university. They said they came back because it was “”the best area in town to do bicycle tricks.””

    Police found graffiti on the south wall of the Modern Languages building, 1423 E. University Blvd., at 11:50 a.m. Jan. 6, reports stated.

    No letters could be made out from the black, spray-painted graffiti.

    A photo of it was taken and facilities management was notified for clean-up.

    Two students had their skateboards confiscated after they ran from police at 11:20 p.m. Jan. 6, reports stated.

    Police saw the men run down a staircase in the Highland Avenue Garage, 1240 N. Highland Ave., while holding skateboards.

    Police found the men in bushes on the north side of Helen Street, east of Mountain Avenue.

    Both said they had been previously warned for doing skateboard tricks on university property but they decided to do it anyway.

    They were each given a UA Parking and Transportation citation and their case was forwarded to the Dean of Students Office for violating the Student code of Conduct.

    A man was arrested for driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance, and possession of drug paraphernalia, reports stated.

    A police officer stopped the man at 10:29 a.m. Jan. 8 because the vehicle he was driving had a mandatory insurance suspension.

    The man gave the officer an expired vehicle registration and said he had left his wallet at home.

    A records check showed the man had a warrant from the Marana Police Department for failing to appear in court for drug paraphernalia charges and driving with a suspended license.

    Police found a plastic baggie containing 0.5 grams of methanphetamine. The man said he didn’t know where the bag came from.

    When the officer reminded the man that the baggie was in his car, the man said, “”I don’t know, I guess it’s mine.”” He also told police it had been a “”couple weeks”” since he used any meth.

    The man was booked into Pima County Jail.
