    Items worth $1,000 were stolen from a student’s truck while it was parked in a South of Sixth Avenue parking lot on North Warren Avenue at 10:15 a.m. Oct. 11, reports stated.

    The student who owns the truck reported the incident and told police that his friend might have witnessed the theft.

    The owner’s friend told police that he saw a Hispanic male with a mustache in his early 20s in the truck’s passenger seat while a white male stood near the driver’s door of a nearby silver Cavalier.

    The owner’s friend said he thought the two men were also friends of the owner.

    He said that both men left in the Cavalier, and their car had Arizona plates although he did not see the license number.

    Although the owner’s friend said he did not feel confident enough to give information for a composite sketch for either of the two suspects, he said he did feel confident he could identify them if he saw them again.

    The truck’s owner showed the police the broken passenger door lock on his truck.

    A digital camera, an iPod nano and an iPod player were taken from the vehicle.

    Police found no evidence at the scene of the crime.

    The incident began when a Coronado resident assistant

    reported the smell of marijuana emanating from a room in the residence hall.

    Two officers responded to the scene, and they could smell burning marijuana from outside the room’s door.

    The officers knocked on the door twice without any response, but the students opened the door when the officers announced they were from the University of

    Arizona Police Department as they knocked a third time.

    When the officers walked in, one student was in the bathroom, one was seated and the other held the door open.

    Although there was a strong smell of marijuana in the room, the men said that they had not smoked and had not possessed marijuana.

    Police did not find any marijuana after they searched the students, and there was none in plain view in the room.

    After questioning, however, the men said that one of them had brought over a marijuana cigarette, and he flushed it out when the officers knocked.

    The man who brought the cigarette to the hall said that he smoked on the way to the dorm.

    The other two did not admit to smoking, although their eyes were red and watery, and both smelled of the drug.
