    The estimated damage was $200, reports stated.

    The RA had walked through the area at 2:45 a.m. and saw the board was undamaged, but when the RA returned at 3:15 a.m., the board was torn off the wall, reports stated.

    The RA remembered seeing a male and female sitting on a couch nearby.

    Police and the RA went to the male student’s room around 3:35 a.m., but no one answered the door, reports stated. The RA looked down the hall and saw the same male and female from earlier sitting on a couch in a study room.

    The male student told police the bulletin board was already damaged when he had sat on the couch at 2 a.m. and said he did not see anyone suspicious in the area.

    After he was told he had a warrant, the student told police he had been given a ticket but didn’t realize he had been arrested.

    The student was transported to Pima County Jail and booked, reports stated.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses to the damaged bulletin board, reports stated.
