Talk about this story

University police went to a UA fraternity Friday after reports that possible marijuana packaging remnants were found in a trash can near the house, police reports stated.

The man who found the packaging near Chi Phi Fraternity, 1104 E. Seventh St., called UAPD at about 10 p.m. and UAPD dispatch forwarded the call to the Tucson Police Department, reports stated.

The TPD officer at the scene called UAPD back and requested their presence because the trash can is in a UA parking lot.

According to reports, a UAPD officer went to the house and the TPD officer gave UAPD the possible marijuana packaging remnants to keep as evidence, reports stated.

While officers searched the trash can, a Chi Phi Fraternity member sat on the porch and watched, reports stated.

When the UAPD officer noticed him at the house, he asked him if he knew anything about what was found in the trash can, reports stated.

The man said he didn't know anything about it and the officer, after questioning him again a half hour later, decided the man had no information to help the case, reports stated.

Police are still looking into the matter.

Police arrested a UA student early Saturday morning after the student left her car parked oddly on a campus road, reports stated.

The officer noticed the woman's Volkswagen Jetta at about 2:25 a.m. parked at East First Street and North Vine Avenue with its lights on and a window down, reports stated.

After searching the area, the officer found Hillary Robanser, 19, of 1448 E. First St., with her boyfriend.

She said she and her boyfriend had been fighting verbally earlier and she just left her car after she became angry. She also told police she has been diagnosed as manic depressive, reports stated.

The officer noticed her breath smelled of intoxicants as he spoke with her, reports stated.

He asked Robanser if she wanted to speak with a counselor and she said she would, reports stated.

Police cited Robanser on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol and released her to her boyfriend after she spoke with a counselor.

Police arrested a man twice early Saturday morning after he refused to leave a campus-area convenience store, reports stated.

David Neal, 38, of a general delivery address, was at Star Mart, 501 N. Park Ave., when the store clerk asked him to leave, reports stated.

The clerk told police Neal wouldn't leave the store, and when Neal swore at him he called UAPD.

Police arrived at the Star Mart and cited Neal on suspicion of third degree criminal trespass.

A little more than an hour later, police received another call from the Star Mart clerk, who said Neal was still on the property and was making gestures at customers, reports stated.

When police arrived, Neal was standing in front of the store. He smelled heavily of alcohol and could barely stand, reports stated.

When the officer moved to handcuff Neal, Neal ran north on Park Avenue.

The officer caught up to Neal and told him to put his hands behind his head, reports stated.

As he handcuffed him, Neal began to struggle. Another officer arrived to help detain Neal, reports stated.

Neal was cited again on suspicion of third degree criminal trespass and was taken to Pima County Jail and booked.

A UAPD officer arrested a man Friday morning after the man was found sleeping at the Main Library, reports stated.

The officer was performing a building check of the library, 1510 E. University Blvd., when he saw Jeremy Phillips, 26, of the 2900 block of North Oracle Road, sleeping on the third floor, reports stated.

The officer asked him for identification, but Phillips said he didn't have any.

Phillips gave the officer a false name, social security number and date of birth, but when the identification check came back false, he gave the officer his real identification, reports stated.

Phillips is not a UA student, and police cited him on suspicion of second degree criminal trespass and released him.
