Police arrested a UA student Monday after a report of possible possession of marijuana, police reports stated.

Two UAPD officers went to Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., after someone reported Michael Grossman, 19, a resident, might have marijuana.

After obtaining a search warrant, police went to Grossman's room.

According to reports, while they searched Grossman's room, Grossman asked police, "Why don't I just show you where the marijuana is?"

Grossman retrieved a key from his desk and told police, "It's in the bottom drawer of the file cabinet," reports stated.

According to reports, one of the officers opened the file cabinet and removed a glass smoking device with possible burnt marijuana residue on it, a plastic film container filled with a green, leafy substance and a plastic baggie filled with a green, leafy substance.

The film container was filled with 7.4 grams of the substance and the plastic baggie contained 4.4 grams of the substance, reports stated.

The officer also found two unopened cans of beer in the file cabinet.

Grossman was cited on suspicion of possession of marijuana, suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia and suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol and released at the scene.

Another employee told her at 8:30 a.m. that the car was damaged.

She went to check her car and found that someone had scratched the paint on the hood.

Most of the scratches appeared to be unintelligible writing, but the words "Eat cock" were legible, reports stated.

Police called the Marriott's personnel department about the two co-workers and gave the case to UAPD detectives to contact them about the vandalism.

She told police she was a couple of payments behind on the car, but the financing company for her car didn't know about the disappearance.

The woman said she owns the only set of keys to the car and her husband, whom she is divorcing, had no knowledge of the car's disappearance.

Police gave the woman her case number to periodically check the status of her stolen vehicle.
