Police Beat

By Jeff Sklar

Tuesday October 9, 2001

A UA student called police Thursday after several items were stolen from his bike, reports stated.

The student reported that several items, with a total value of $975, were stolen from his bicycle, which was parked at the east bike racks of the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St.

He had parked his bike there at midnight Thursday, and the items were gone when he returned at 10:50 a.m., reports stated.

Police have no suspects at this time.

A Tucsonan was cited Thursday for displaying suspended license plates, reports stated.

Police stopped Omar A. Qurban, of the 6300 block of North Montebella Road, while he was driving east on Speedway Boulevard near Campbell Avenue, because the license plate on his car showed expired registration.

The officer ran a records check on the car, which showed that the plates had been suspended, reports stated.

Qurban was unable to provide a driver's license, or proof of insurance or registration, because they had been taken when he received a DUI on Sept. 21.

He was cited for displaying suspended plates, and the license plate was placed into evidence.

A student called police after her purse was stolen from a campus building Thursday, reports stated.

The student said she noticed the purse, which is worth $85 and contained several credit cards, missing about 30 minutes after she left her class in the Education building, 1430 E. Second St.

Since she had already left campus at this time, she sent her friend to check for the purse.

Her friend was unable to locate it, so she contacted her professor and the Student Union Memorial Center to see if it had been turned in to lost and found, but it had not, reports stated.

There are no suspects at this time.

Police were contacted Thursday after a student's bike was stolen from a campus building.

The student said his 21-speed "Magma XL2" bike and cable lock were stolen from Rodgers Roundtree Hall, 1145 N. Mountain Ave., on Tuesday.

The student said he had secured the bike to the racks northeast of the building at 10 a.m., and when he returned at 6 p.m., both items were missing.

There are no suspects at this time.

Police responded Thursday to a report of a student's wallet being stolen from a campus building, reports stated.

The student said that her wallet - which contained several forms of identification, a credit card and $15 to $20 in cash - was stolen from the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St.

The theft occurred between 9:15 a.m. and noon Thursday, but the student did not know if it happened while she was inside or outside the building, reports stated.

The student reported that she cancelled her credit card. There are no suspects at this time.

Police responded to a campus residence hall Thursday when a student and hall director reported that a resident was displaying suicidal tendencies, reports stated.

Officers met with the two reporting parties at Coconino Residence Hall, 1003 N. Olive Ave., and they said the student, who has had suicidal tendencies in the past, was bipolar and had been depressed.

The student's roommate said that when she entered their room, the resident had left. The roommate then left also, and when she returned, she found a broken mirror, which the resident said had fallen, on the resident's bed, reports stated.

The roommate also said that the resident has a boyfriend at ASU, whom she said may have contributed to the depression. The roommate and the hall director were advised to call the University of Arizona Police Department if anything else unusual occurs.

An employee contacted UAPD Thursday after the license plate was stolen from his car in a campus parking garage.

The employee said he had parked his car in the Administration Garage, 1340 E. Second St., at about 8:15 a.m. When he returned at 5:30 p.m., he noticed that the rear license plate had been stolen, as well as the four screws that held it in place.

The employee said there was no damage to his vehicle. There are no suspects at this time.
