A university employee called police Monday afternoon after he found pornographic material downloaded on to his computer, police reports stated.

He told police he left his office at Campbell Farms, 4040 N. Campbell Ave., Friday at 6 p.m. and returned to his office Monday at noon.

Along with downloaded pornographic information, the employee also found material left in his printer.

The employee told police he locked his door before he left. Police have no suspects.

Police arrested a man on suspicion of marijuana possession Mar. 11 after an officer saw him drop two bags of suspected marijuana in the street.

The officer spotted Steve V. Goodman, 34, walking south on North Euclid Avenue.

Goodman, of the 700 block of North Dodge Boulevard, reportedly walked into the street and then stepped back on to the sidewalk. Police told him to stop, but he ignored the officer and continued to walk.

Goodman reached into his pocket, dropping the two bags on the ground.

Police told Goodman to stop again. He approached the officer and said the bags of suspected marijuana were not his, reports stated.

Moments later, he admitted to possessing the bags and "pleaded for a break," reports stated.

The officer cited the man and drove him home. Goodman reportedly continued to apologize on the ride to his home, stating he "needed a place to straighten him out," reports stated.

Police went to Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, 940 E. Fourth St., after receiving a call March 14 about a suspected burning marijuana odor.

When officers arrived at the dorm, they also smelled what they believed to be burning marijuana.

Officers knocked on the door where the smell originated, but no one responded, reports stated.

Police got a key for the room and entered to find a clear, plastic prescription bottle containing suspected marijuana. The window in the room had no screen and was open when police arrived.

Officers took the suspected marijuana into evidence.

A resident assistant told police students had been known to jump out their second-floor dorm room windows in the past, reports stated.

Police arrested a Tucson man on suspicion of marijuana and paraphernalia possession March 17 after he was stopped for speeding.

The officer pulled over Benjamin Mark McDade, 21, of the 7900 block of East Victoria Drive, at the corner of Sixth Street and North Park Avenue.

The officer saw a bag of what he believed to be marijuana inside McDade's car, police reports stated.

McDade also admitted to having a pipe in his possession.

Police cited and released him.

An employee from Taco Bron restaurant, 831 N. Park Ave., called police March 12 to report a bad check written by a student, police reports stated.

The employee told police a female student ordered $6.69 worth of food on March 2.

An employee delivered the food to a student at the La Paz Residence Hall lobby, 602 N. Highland Ave. The student paid by check.

But according to the employee, Norwest Bank told him the student's account was closed and they would not honor the check, reports stated.

The Taco Bron worker told police he wanted to press charges, adding that he would try to find out when the student closed her checking account.
