Police BeatAfter pulling over a vehicle without a license plate and rear bumper Wednesday, university police arrested one man on three outstanding warrants and another man on numerous charges.
Police stopped a 1979 Ford Thunderbird after noticing the missing parts.
After asking Phillip W. Bebee, 24, of the 7000 block of North Steele Drive, for his license, Bebee told police he did not have it and that it was suspended.
According to police reports, Bebee pulled up the armrest, put his right hand fingers in the crack between the seats and again put down the armrest before getting out of the vehicle. Police checked the crack in the seats and found a Bowie knife with an 8-inch blade, police reports stated. Police took the knife as evidence.
After a warrants check, the car's passenger, Jeffery M. Collyer, 22, of the 4000 block of East 29th Street, was found to have three outstanding misdemeanor warrants, police reports stated.
Bebee was cited on the charges of carrying a concealed weapon in the car, no Arizona registration, no proof of insurance, driving with a suspended license and having an unsafe vehicle. He was cited and released.
Collyer was arrested on three warrants and was booked into Pima County Jail.
University police arrested a man on criminal trespassing charges Wednesday after he was found sleeping in a bathroom stall in the Music building, 1017 N. Olive Road.
Police found George C. Zimmerman, 43, of a general delivery address, intoxicated and sitting on a toilet of the first floor west men's restroom about 3:34 p.m., police reports stated.
Zimmerman was not drinking at the time, but police reports stated an unsealed, almost empty bottle of vodka was laying on the floor next to him. The man also had a "heavy odor of alcohol, red blood shot eyes and was very slow moving and unresponsive," the reports stated.
When officers asked Zimmerman where he was, he answered, "Sixth Avenue."
A warrants check found Zimmerman had been warned for criminal trespassing before.
Zimmerman was arrested on charges of second degree criminal trespassing and was booked into Pima County Jail.
A man was arrested by university police Wednesday after he was found in possession of marijuana when officers stopped another man because he looked similar to a composite drawing of a rape suspect.
James Buchanan, 31, of the 1200 block of West Roger Road, was walking with another man at East Sixth Street and North Euclid Avenue when police stopped the two men to check the other against the composite sketch. The other man was not the person police were seeking.
Police smelled burnt marijuana on Buchanan's clothing, police reports stated. When police asked Buchanan if they could search him, he said, "Go ahead. I don't have anything." Officers then removed two clusters of marijuana from Buchanan's front poncho pockets, police reports stated.
After placing Buchanan under arrest on a charge of unlawful possession of marijuana, police reports stated officers searched Buchanan and found a bag of marijuana in his front pants pocket.
Buchanan was cited and released at the scene.
A man was arrested on a criminal trespassing charge Wednesday at the Art building, 1031 N. Olive Road.
Chad E. Carter, 26, of a general delivery address, was found walking out of the building about 8:59 p.m. when police approached him and asked him what he was doing.
Carter said he was in the building to retrieve his jacket.
A UA employee, who reported a suspicious man wandering in the building, said he saw the man reading a book in the building's basement.
A warrant check showed that Carter had been warned of trespassing before.
