A UA student called university police Monday after her 1994 Jeep Cherokee was stolen from a campus area parking lot, police reports stated.

The woman said she parked her car in a lot at 1904 E. Helen St. at about 8:30 a.m. When she returned, her car was missing, reports stated.

Police checked the scene of the reported theft and found no broken glass or debris that would indicate forced entry, reports stated.

The Jeep is valued at an estimated $9,000, reports stated.

The woman also had a cellular phone valued at an estimated $50 stolen with the vehicle, reports stated.

A UA student contacted police Monday after the phone cord in her residence was cut, reports stated.

The woman said the phone was working Friday and she hadn't used it over the weekend, reports stated.

When she tried to use it Monday, she realized that someone had cut the cord, reports stated.

According to reports, the woman had contacted police earlier in the semester after her roommate left threatening notes in their room at Graham Greenlee Residence Hall, 1418 E. Fourth St.

The woman thought her roommate may have chopped the cord, reports stated.

According to reports, the two had previous disagreements over use of the phone.

The roommate, who hadn't been in the room most of the weekend, said she didn't cut the cord, reports stated.

The roommate spent the weekend with her parents, and the roommates mother said it would have been difficult for her daughter to cut the cord, since she was with them all weekend, reports stated.

The student didn't wish to pursue the matter but wanted to document it, reports stated.

Residence Life is in the process of making alternative living arrangements to alleviate the feud, reports stated.

Police responded Monday to a report of stolen property from a man's car, reports stated.

The man said he parked his 1990 Jeep Wrangler in the Sigma Chi Fraternity parking lot, 1616 E. First St., at about 11 p.m. last Wednesday, reports stated.

When the man returned Thursday morning at about 10 a.m., he said someone had broken into his Jeep and stolen his compact disc player, a speaker box, two speakers and some compact discs, reports stated.

He said he had to work all weekend, so he waited until Monday to contact police, reports stated.

According to reports, the compact disc player was valued at an estimated $250, the speakers were valued at an estimated $300 and the speaker box was valued at an estimated $300.

The soft top on the Jeep was off during the theft, reports stated.

A UA employee called police Monday morning after someone broke into his car Sunday and stole his Zone 1 parking permit, reports stated.

About seven hours later, police arrested a man for stealing that same parking permit, reports stated.

The victim called police at about 9:20 a.m. Monday and said he parked his car in a lot at 1425 E. Sixth St. at about 2 a.m. on Sunday, and when he returned at 3 p.m., his permit was gone, reports stated.

He said he put the permit between the sun visor and the window in his Jeep so no one would steal it, reports stated.

After receiving a report that someone saw the stolen pass, police took pictures of a car that belonged to Alexander C. Tai, 18, of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., reports stated.

After getting pictures of the car with the stolen permit on display, they went to a UA parking lot at 888 N. Euclid Ave. where Tai had parked his car to verify that it was his, reports stated.

After viewing the pictures, Tai said it was his car, reports stated.

Police cited Tai on suspicion of theft and released him, reports stated.
