He told police he didn't have any idea who took the case and compact discs.

Police responded to a UA parking lot Monday after a UA student called UAPD and said her car had been hit and the driver of the other vehicle didn't leave a note, reports stated.

It is unknown how much the damage to the lights will cost the UA.

She said her supervisor opened the room for faculty use again Friday at 1 p.m., and another employee closed and locked the room for the weekend at 6 p.m., reports stated.
