A Tucson woman called police Wednesday afternoon after her wallet was stolen from her work.

The woman told officers her wallet was stolen between 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. while she was working Tuesday at Maui Beach Tanning Salon, 1107 N. Park Ave., police reports stated.

She told police a man entered the store at 6:15 p.m. and didn't leave until 8:15 p.m.

According to reports, she told police she had seen the same man in the store five weeks prior to the theft and believed he had walked into one of the tanning rooms while occupied by a customer.

According to reports, a customer told the employee she discovered the door to the tanning room she was using to be unlocked after she was finished tanning and that she was positive she had locked it before she started.

The woman told officers she inspected the room after the customer left, and found a milky white substance, which she believed to resemble ejaculate, on the floor by the tanning bed.

She also told police she has not seen the man since the theft of her wallet, but if she were to see him again she would recognize him.

A student called police Thursday night after hearing two "obscene" messages on his answering machine.

The resident of Apache-Santa Cruz Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., told police he found the messages at 9:45 p.m., police reports stated.

He told officers he tried to trace the calls but was unsuccessful.

According to reports, the student said he did not recognize the voice. He also said his pager and sunglasses were stolen the previous day, when he had also found a threatening message in his room.

Police placed the taped messages into evidence.
