University police responded Sunday afternoon to a report of a man stealing from the men's locker room at the Student Recreation Center, 1400 E. Sixth St., police reports stated.

John Green, 32, of a general delivery address, went into the Rec Center to buy a drink from the snack bar, but he instead ventured into the men's locker room, reports stated.

After reportedly stealing a hat and pair of sunglasses from the locker room - valued at an estimated $180 - Green left the building, reports stated.

The victim's friend notified security and then tried to confront Green in the lobby, but neither he nor two security guards could stop him from leaving the building, reports stated.

Police caught up with Green in an alley between East Seventh and East Eighth streets on North Warren Avenue and apprehended him, reports stated.

According to reports, Green admitted taking the hat and sunglasses from the locker room.

A search of Green's backpack revealed the hat and sunglasses, a knife and a blank personal check that was not in Green's name, reports stated.

An identification check revealed that Green had a warrant for his arrest because of a probation violation, reports stated.

Green was cited on suspicion of first degree burglary, probation violation, theft, interference with an educational institution and prohibited possessor. He was booked into Pima County Jail, reports stated.

An apartment in the "B" building at Palm Shadows Apartments, 1802 E. Helen St., part of which is also a residence hall, had a three-by-four foot window shattered between 3 and 3:30 a.m., reports stated.

Police stopped a man Friday afternoon near East First Street and North Campbell Avenue after noticing he was driving erratically, reports stated.

According to reports, the officer then noted that Harrold stopped behind the police officer at a stop light and his car was between the right and center lanes.

A UAPD officer on the scene administered field sobriety tests to Harrold, reports stated.

Harrold reportedly completed the first sobriety test, but refused to finish the rest of tests because he was "upset with the situation," reports stated.

Harrold was also driving with a suspended license from another incident, reports stated.
