University police referred a student to the Dean of Students Diversion Program Wednesday afternoon after she tried to use a Main Gate Garage parking permit that was reported stolen.

Police arrived and spoke with the student, who told officers she bought the permit from her ex-neighbor "Rob" and paid $50 for it, reports stated. "Rob" had told her he was graduating in December and no longer needed it.

The student never contacted Parking and Transportation to inform them of the exchange with "Rob," according to reports. Police referred her for attempted theft of services, reports stated.
