A UA student called university police yesterday after noticing a credit card had been taken from her residence hall room.

The woman was in her room yesterday in Parker House, 1775 E. First St., when her credit card company called her to ask about transactions that had been made in the past couple of days, reports stated.

She told police she had seen the card Saturday morning at about 3:30 a.m. on her desk while a man she knew was in her room. He left at 4 a.m. and she thinks he took the card.

She gave police the man's first name, but she didn't know his last name or phone number.

She then told police the man called her Sunday and said he was going to California, so she would try to get information from him when he called again, reports stated.

Police arrested a man yesterday after investigating a report of panhandling near the UA campus.

Joseph Zeman, 21, of the 2200 block of West Orange Grove Road, was reportedly panhandling at about 12:50 a.m. on the corner of North Park Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard when police spoke to him, reports stated.

Police ran a check on Zeman's identification and found he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on a previous charge.

Police cited Zeman on suspicion of failure to appear in court for third degree trespassing. He was booked in the Pima County Jail.

A UA student contacted police yesterday to report that a woman he knows was making prank phone calls to him.

The man, who lives in Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., said his phone would ring, and when he picked it up, a woman's voice would laugh and hang up, reports stated.

He said he thought he knew the woman who was calling, and he gave police her first name and phone number.

According to reports, police called the woman and asked her if she was making prank phone calls to the man.

The woman said she and the man weren't friends anymore and she wasn't making prank calls.

The officer said she didn't sound like she was telling the truth.

Police warned her that if she was making the calls, she should stop.

She agreed with police, and the man said he didn't want to press charges, reports stated.

At about 8:30 that evening, the woman called UAPD and told them that the man was making up the story to get back at her for a dispute she had with his roommate.

Police told her if she wasn't making the calls, she had nothing to worry about, reports stated.

A UA employee called police yesterday afternoon after finding her car had been hit while parked in a campus lot.

The woman said the 1997 Plymouth Neon next to her 1996 Toyota station wagon looked as if it had been hit by a third car, and the Neon had slid into her car after the accident, reports stated.

Police responded to the lot, 815 E. Second St., to check the situation and found that both the Neon and station wagon couldn't be driven without further damage to both vehicles.

The owner of the Neon couldn't be reached, but a note from the possible owner of the third car was found on the Neon, reports stated.

The note left a man's phone number to contact about the accident.

An officer called the number and left a message to call police about the incident.

The employee's station wagon had damage to the driver's side rear quarter panel, the fuel tank cover and the fuel tank apparatus under the cover, reports stated.

The Neon had damage to the driver's side rear quarter panel, rear driver's side door, the rear bumper, both taillights and the passenger rear quarter panel, reports stated.

According to reports, police contacted a towing company to move the employee's car so she could drive it home, and the woman left.
