Police responded to a UA residence hall Monday after a resident assistant called to report the smell of marijuana coming from a room, police reports stated.

The resident assistant said he was at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., at about 1 a.m. when he smelled the possible marijuana smoke, reports stated.

As he went to knock on the door, two boys opened the door to leave, reports stated.

The resident assistant said he smelled a stronger odor and noticed two fans operating, pointed toward the open window, reports stated.

One of the boys was the younger brother of one of the room's occupants, --------, 18, of Coronado Residence Hall, and the resident assistant contacted her to return to the room.

Two UAPD officers arrived soon after and both smelled the strong odor of possible marijuana smoke coming from the room, reports stated.

The officers asked the boys if they had been smoking marijuana in the room and both denied smoking marijuana, reports stated.

They were asked to tilt their heads back and close their eyes and the officers noticed fluttering eye responses consistent with the usage of marijuana, reports stated.

------- also had some eye fluttering, but she didn't have a yellow tinge on her tongue common with marijuana use like the two boys did, reports stated.

Police said ------- vehemently denied possessing or smoking marijuana in her room and told the officers they could search the room if they chose, reports stated.

When one officer asked to look in the refrigerator next to ------- roommate's bed, she noticed a crushed Diet Pepsi can under the bed with homemade holes in it, reports stated.

The officer grabbed the device and saw a baggy containing a green leafy substance weighing 3.2 grams sticking out of the top of the can, reports stated.

Police asked the boys and ------- who the items belonged to and all three denied possession, reports stated.

The officer explained to them that the situation would be deferred to UA Residence Life and sanctions could be imposed on both -------- and her roommate for possession of the substance.

The two boys then told police they bought the baggy at a party the night before and ------- knew nothing of it, reports stated.

-------- parents arrived and police notified them of the situation.

The officers also told them all that Residence Life would still be involved in the issue because the boys were -------- guests.

Police arrested a man Monday after pulling him over for speeding and finding he was driving on a suspended license, reports stated.

The officer saw Gregory Chisholm, 21, of the 5500 block of North Calle La Cima, at about 11:59 a.m. accelerating rapidly upon turning north onto North Campbell Avenue from East Sixth Street.

He followed Chisholm and matched Chisholm's speed at 45 mph in a 35 mph zone, reports stated.

The officer pulled Chisholm over and found he had no license, proof of registration or proof of insurance.

A check of his records revealed the suspended license and Chisholm admitted to previous tickets for speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol, reports stated.

Police cited him on suspicion of driving with a suspended license, having no proof of insurance and no current registration and released him at the scene.

A UA employee called UAPD Monday after someone stole UA property from a campus building, reports stated.

The man said two theater speakers and an amplifier were in a storage box behind a curtain in the room when they were stolen.

The man said he had a problem with another resident in the hall earlier in the semester and he gave police his name.

The UAPD tried to contact the man, but he wasn't home.
