University police found what they suspect is a crack pipe and bolt cutters Tuesday while talking to man and woman who had been reported panhandling outside the UA Associated Students Bookstore, 1209 E. University Blvd.

Police found Robin I. Coutire, 19, address unknown, and a 20-year-old woman in the courtyard east of the bookstore about 3:20 p.m.

According to police reports, officers saw track marks on their arms that suggested they used intravenous drugs.

When officers asked for identification, Coutire told police to get it out of his backpack, according to reports.

Police opened the pack to get the ID and saw a glass pipe and the bolt cutters, reports stated.

Coutire denied knowledge of the items being in his pack, reports stated.

However, both of them told police they used heroin and methamphetamines, according to reports.

Coutire was then arrested and released on a drug paraphernalia possession charge.

Police told them not to return to campus without a legitimate reason.

The pipe was taken for substance analysis.

University police warned four skaters to stop performing tricks on campus Wednesday after finding them with a video camera taping skateboard and rollerblade stunts outside the Education building, 1430 E. Second St.

A male student went to UAPD headquarters Wednesday and gave police Polaroids of five men he believes may be exposing themselves at the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd.

His descriptions are as follows:
