A UA employee saw a man steal a desktop printer Wednesday morning from a warehouse that stores surplus computer parts at 1145 S. Warren Ave., reports stated.

When police arrived around 8 a.m. the employee said he saw a man pick up the older printer.

The employee asked the man what he was doing, and the man got into a white car and drove away.

The employee said he was not able to take down the license plate number, but said if he saw the man again he would be able to identify him.

Police searched the area for a white car matching the employee's description, but didn't find one, reports stated.

A man repeatedly looked into a bathroom stall where a UA employee was sitting Wednesday morning at the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

The employee said he was in the stall of the men's bathroom around 9:30 a.m. when a man began to look over the top of the stall.

The man looked over several times and the employee said he felt uncomfortable.

The man then put his ear under the stall and the employee said, "Excuse me?" reports stated.

The employee told police the man then left without saying anything, reports stated.

A student reported seeing her stolen Honda scooter Wednesday night parked near East Fourth Street and North Highland Avenue, but was told her scooter had already been recovered, reports stated.

When police arrived around 6 p.m. the student said she saw a scooter that had identical damage to the damage her scooter had before it was stolen.

The student said the scooter she found appeared to have a new front and rear panel.

Police ran a records check and discovered that the Pima County Sheriff's Department had already recovered the student's stolen scooter, reports stated.

The student said she was never told her scooter had been found.

Police gave the student a number to call to recover her scooter, reports stated.

A student's $100 blue and silver mountain bike was stolen Monday from the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd, reports stated.

The student said he parked his bike around 7 p.m. with a chain lock. The student said he returned three hours later to find the bike gone.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

Someone cut the cable lock off of a student's bike sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday while it was parked at the Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fifth St., and then moved the bike to a new rack and locked it with a U-Lock, reports stated.

When police arrived the student said he locked his bike with a cable lock Tuesday around 9 p.m.

The student said he returned Thursday around 10 a.m. to find his bike had been moved and locked with a U-Lock.

The student had all of the paperwork on the bike but did not have a serial number, reports stated.

Police said they couldn't cut the new U-Lock until it could be verified that the bike belonged to the student.

Police told the student to keep an eye out for the person who locked the bike with a U-Lock so that they could interview them.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A student backed into a golf cart driven by a UA employee Aug. 17 at the Alpha Phi sorority, 1339 E. First St., reports stated.
