    Naked, bored and bruised

    UAPD officers were called to the parking lot at 433 N. Park Ave. on April 21 at 2:40 p.m. after someone reported a fight.

    The original call had been made to the Tucson Police Department and then transferred to UAPD.

    When the officers arrived to the parking lot, there were no people in the area. After searching the parking lot, the officers found several pieces of clothing and a broken DVD player.

    They also searched the area around the parking lot, but no one involved in a fight was found.

    The clothing and DVD player were placed into UAPD property for safekeeping.

    No mo’ music

    A UAPD officer arrived to the Main Gate Parking Garage on April 21 at 5:11 p.m. after a UA student reported that his car had been broken into.

    The student told the officer that someone had punched the driver’s side door lock out and stolen his stereo equipment and an acoustic guitar from his vehicle.

    He said that he parked his GMC Yukon at 8:50 a.m. on the fourth level of the garage, and, when he returned at 4:16 p.m., he found that damage had been done and that items were missing.

    The officer tried to lift fingerprints from the car, but was not able to find any. He did find a face print on the rear driver’s door and took swabs of the print.

    Items stolen from the car included subwoofers worth $300, amps worth $300 and an acoustic guitar worth $350.

    The student was issued a victim’s rights form.

    There are no suspects or witnesses.

    Man ‘above the law,’ but not above being arrested

    A UAPD officer arrived to the UofA Bookstore on April 20 at 12:32 p.m. after Bookstore staff reported having a shoplifter in custody.

    The officer met with the bookstore employee, and the man in a conference room and identified the man as a UA student.

    The student told the officer that he had seen the hat the night before and planned on buying it that afternoon. He told the officer that he thought he was above the law, so he decided to take the baseball hat without paying for it.

    He admitted to taking the hat from a shelf, placing it in his backpack and leaving the store without paying.

    The man was arrested for shoplifting and told not to return to the bookstore or he could be arrested for trespassing.

    A copy of the receipt for the hat and video surveillance of the theft were placed into UAPD property as evidence.

    A Code of Conduct referral was sent to the Dean of Students for the man.
