A UA employee contacted university police Monday after someone stole an orange detour sign from a campus construction site, police reports stated.

The employee called police at about 9 a.m. after realizing that the sign was missing from the site at 1616 E. University Blvd.

The sign, which wasn't secured to anything, was last seen at about 3:30 p.m. Friday.

A construction company employee working on the UA campus called the UAPD Monday after someone stole items from his toolbox and vandalized a computer hard drive in a campus building, reports stated.

The employee said he arrived at work just before 10 a.m., and when he went to a storeroom in the basement of the Memorial Student Union, 1303 E. University Blvd., he noticed that the toolbox had been burglarized some time between 3 p.m. Friday and Sunday afternoon.

The computer hard drive belongs to the UA, and it had the words "Mac Rulz" spray painted on it with pink paint, reports stated.

The employee said the paint on the hard drive came from a can of spray paint that was inside the toolbox, reports stated. Police recovered the can and took it as evidence.

The toolbox, which had its lid pried open, was also missing crescent wrenches.

The employee said UA employees use the storage room from time to time, and he did not know if any of the doors to the room had been locked over the weekend, reports stated.

He also told police that a UA employee had seen a damaged toolbox over the weekend, but didn't see who damaged it, reports stated.

He said he left his Ford van in the lot at 2101 E. Roger Road at about 10 a.m. Saturday and when he returned at noon that day, his cellular phone was missing.

He said that other items from the van were stolen, but the person to whom they belonged would report them, reports stated.

The van was unlocked during the time the phone - valued at an estimated $130 - and other items were taken, reports stated.
