A UA student was arrested yesterday morning after university police pulled him over and found he was driving with a suspended driver license, reports stated.

Daniel S. Nazarian, 21, of 1600 block of East First Street, was driving his 1983 Jeep at about 9:50 a.m. at the intersection of North Cherry Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard when he was spotted by an officer.

The officer said he saw Nazarian turn east on Speedway from Cherry when the traffic light was red, cutting off a car heading east on Speedway.

The officer caught up to Nazarian at the intersection of Speedway and North Campbell Avenue and pulled him over in a parking lot.

Nazarian could not produce any proof of insurance, and when police checked his identification, they discovered a warrant for failing to appear in court for a suspended license violation, reports stated.

Nazarian was transported to Pima County Jail and received a citation on suspicion of driving with a suspended license, no proof of insurance and making an illegal right turn.

He was released by pre-trial services at the jail.

A UA student contacted police last night after discovering more than $3,000 worth of items stolen from his car, reports stated.

The student's 1995 Ford Mustang was broken into sometime between 3 p.m. Sunday and 10 p.m. Monday night in a lot at 1140 N. Park Ave.

Police found the driver's side window was smudged with fingerprints and concluded the break-in was through that window, reports stated.

Police were able to take fingerprints from the window.

Car stereo equipment valued at an estimated $550, a collector's notebook containing John Elway football cards valued at an estimated $2,000, Oakley sunglasses valued at an estimated $130, 75 compact discs valued at an estimated $750 and a UA baseball cap valued at $20 were missing from the car, reports stated.

Police also found a two-inch scratch in the window tint of the driver's side window indicating use of a tool to break into the car.

A UA employee contacted police yesterday morning after discovering more than $1,000 in audio-visual equipment was missing from a UA building, reports stated.

An employee at the Franklin building, 1011 E. Fifth St., reported that a Sony television valued at an estimated $750, a Panasonic video cassette recorder valued at an estimated $300, a metal security cage for a VCR valued at an estimated $100 and an audio/visual cart with wheels valued at an estimated $150 were missing from a room in the building, reports stated.

The employee said the television, cart, cage and VCR could have been stolen any time between Sept. 17 and Oct. 7.

The items were secured with a cable and padlock while in the room, but the person who stole the items cut both the cable and padlock.

Police responded to a UA building yesterday morning after an employee reported a possible case of vandalism, reports stated.

The employee called police at about 6:40 a.m. when he noticed a window on the northeast side of the Shantz building, 1200 E. South Campus Drive, was cracked, reports stated.

The crack on the window was a few inches from the ground and police said it may have been caused by a skateboard or a rock.

A UA student contacted police yesterday morning after finding her car had been broken into while at a campus-area parking lot, reports stated.

The student's 1998 Hyundai Sonata was broken into while parked at East Fifth Street and North Tyndall Avenue from 10 p.m. Sunday until about 8:50 a.m. yesterday.

The rear passenger door was broken on the student's vehicle, and her compact disc player and factory-installed digital clock were stolen, reports stated.
