    An ounce of ‘dank weed’

    A male UA student was cited for possession of “”some dank weed”” at La Paz Residence Hall at 12:45 a.m. on Friday.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a call from a resident assistant about the marijuana odor around 12:13 a.m.

    The RA pointed out the room to the officer immediately smelled a strong marijuana odor.

    The room’s door was open slightly and the officer knocked to enter. One of the room’s residents answered the door appearing to have just woken up.

    The resident was asleep since 11:30 p.m. but said that if the door was open then his roommate was likely in the shower.

    The resident’s belongings yielded no marijuana.

    The officer then went to the bathroom and asked the other resident to come and talk with the officer in the room.

    The officer asked the resident if he knew why the police was in his room.

    “”I’m pretty sure I know why,”” said the student. “”Because of the marijuana in my desk.””

    The student proceeded to his desk and pulled out a plastic bag, glass container with marijuana and a glass pipe.

    The student said that he bought the marijuana from a girl south of campus.

    He reportedly paid $240 for the ounce of marijuana. “”(She) gave me a really good price on some dank weed,”” the student said.

    The student was cited and released for possession of marijuana.

    The marijuana was weighed to be 29.4 grams at UAPD.

    Mailboxes ‘stolen’ from Sky View Apartments

    A UA Residence Life employee reported to UAPD at 1:13 p.m., on Friday that three separate mailbox units were missing from Sky View Apartments.

    The units contained multiple mailboxes and were found to have been removed from a concrete area near the front door of the residence hall.

    The employee was unsure if the boxes were stolen or removed by the postal service.

    The responding UAPD officer attempted to contact a representative from the United States Postal Service.

    The employee also did not know when the mailboxes disappeared. The employee said that it was discovered on Friday, but the boxes were last seen in December 2010.

    The mailboxes are no longer used for mail service because deliveries are now made inside the Sky View building.

    Skater tattletales, ditched by friends

    A UAPD officer noticed a skateboard rolling through the Highland Avenue Parking Garage without a rider while on patrol at 5 p.m. on Friday.

    The officer got out of his vehicle to investigate but did not find anyone in the immediate area.

    As the officer stood around calling out for the board’s owner, a non UA-affiliated man came down the ramp on another skateboard.

    The officer stopped the skater. The skater said that he was skating in the garage with some friends.

    The officer then asked about the unknown skateboard and the skater said that it belonged to a friend and that the group of skateboarders was on the top floor of the garage.

    The officer warned the skater not to skateboard in the garage and that if he was caught again, he would be charged.

    He asked the skater to lead the way toward the group of skateboarders, but the skater’s friends were no longer on the top floor.

    The skater left the area, and the officer placed the board into UAPD property for the owner to claim at a later date.
