University police arrested two runaways at Prince Farms, 2830 N. Freeway, after officers noticed the juveniles crawling under a fence at the perimeter of the facility.

The two initially gave officers false names, but later provided their real ones. Computer checks revealed the two were reported missing from a local halfway house.

The youths were arrested on charges of second degree criminal trespassing, providing false information to law enforcement, and being runaway juveniles.

They were transported to Pima County Juvenile Court Center.

A UA employee called police Friday after her car was stolen from Lot 2029 on the corner of North Warren Avenue and East Mabel Street.

The employee told police she parked her 1990 Buick Park Avenue sedan at 8:05 a.m. and returned at 11:45 a.m. to find it missing.

Thieves gained entry by breaking out the tinted driver's side window, which was found intact on the ground near the scene.

The car is valued at $11,000. Tools and a jack in the trunk are valued at an additional $350.

A resident of Pi Beta Phi sorority, 1035 N. Mountain Ave., called police Friday after several members received harassing phone calls.

Between 10 and 10:40 a.m., a male who identified himself as "Tim," called a community telephone at the sorority four times.

He initially said he was masturbating and then called back ten minutes later to say he "was about to come," police reports stated. The man called back two more times, but residents quickly hung up the phone.

None of the residents dialed a telephone code, such as *69, to trace the calls, police reports stated.

Officers advised the residents to trace the phone call if the person calls again.

He was cited and released at the scene.
