    Furniture woes, furniture foes

    University of Arizona Police Department officers responded on Friday at 10:42 a.m. to a call made by the Chi Omega sorority house director in reference to furniture on the back patio of their house being stolen. The director informed the officers that the patio furniture was stolen a few days before Friday, but she did not call the UAPD because she did not know if it was a Greek Life-related prank or if it had truly been stolen. Officers inspected the surrounding areas and noticed the yard’s back entrance gate was locked, and that the patio furniture was missing. The missing pieces of furniture are an iron patio table with four matching chairs, a solid metal umbrella and an iron pedestal for the umbrella. The sorority director estimated the furniture’s cost at $500. There are no known suspects, however officers continue to search the surrounding areas.

    Down the drain

    UAPD arrived at the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall on Friday in response to a call from the resident assistant, who said that there was a strong odor of marijuana and smoke coming from one of the dorm rooms. Two officers arrived on the scene to a room full of eight male students. The room smelled of cigarettes, cigars and had a faint smell of marijuana as well. The officers asked whose room it was and said that everyone must leave but the room’s owners. The two students that lived in the room stayed, and were questioned by the officers. The officers noticed a bottle of Smirnoff Vodka in the corner of the room and asked if it was theirs. One male student replied, “It is ours, but someone else bought it for us.” The officers asked who bought it for them and if there was more, but they said they did not know the name of the student who purchased it and that there was no more alcohol. The students also allowed the officers to look in their refrigerator, and the officers found another full handle of Smirnoff. Both of the students claimed ownership of the bottle. The students were then told to dump out all of the alcohol Both students were cited for minor in possession of alcohol and were required to go to the Dean of Students Office.
