    A man was arrested and booked into Pima County Jail for possession of marijuana and outstanding warrants for failure to appear to a court date and consuming liquor in public Jan. 10 at 10:48 p.m., reports stated.

    A woman reported a man riding a bicycle northbound on North Park Avenue toward East Speedway Boulevard. The man appeared to be intoxicated.

    A UAPD officer who responded saw the man lose balance and fall into a pile of rocks. The man then attempted to push himself along, using the wall for support.

    Police searched the man and found a baggy containing a green, leafy substance in his pants pocket. The man told the officer it was marijuana.

    When asked how the man smoked marijuana, the man replied, “”all ways.””

    A wood-framed photograph of Lute Olson, UA men’s basketball head coach, was reported stolen Feb. 15 from the Wildcat Gallery, 1721 E. Enke Drive, sometime between 11-11:30 p.m., reports stated.

    A UA employee reported entering her office around 11 p.m. When she exited her office, she noticed the photograph missing.

    The employee said it would have required “”some force”” and possibly a special tool to remove the photograph, as it was specially fastened to the wall.

    The woman estimated the frame to cost around $100 but could not place a dollar amount on the Olson photo.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    Police contacted two employees of Bruegger’s Bagels at 1:21 p.m. Feb. 15, to determine if a juvenile listed as a runaway was living with them, reports stated.

    The juvenile’s mother requested the police talk to the two employees.

    Police interviewed both employees separately and both had reported seeing the juvenile a few days earlier. Both said he was not living with them.

    Both responded that the runaway “”got on their nerves.””

    The officer contacted the mother and informed her of the conversations.

    The student tried to enter the section with a water bottle filled with vodka when athletic personnel stopped him.

    A student told police she responded to a false e-mail Feb. 13, reports stated.
