Two UA students and a Tucson man were arrested on drug charges Wednesday after another Tucson man noticed them behaving suspiciously and smoking out of a pipe on the UA campus, reports stated.

The man called police after he noticed a man and woman smoking what he suspected to be marijuana out of a pipe while using their jackets to cover their heads, reports stated.

An officer arrived at a grassy area near East Fifth Street and North Highland Avenue where the students were, and questioned Lindsey Rachel Artz, 19, of the 1400 block of East Fifth Street, reports stated.

The officer separated Artz from the other two people and asked her if she had a pipe or marijuana, reports stated.

After Artz replied that she didn't, the officer asked her if he could search her purse, and then Artz admitted that she had a pipe, reports stated.

Artz gave the officer a gold-colored pipe and a purple, plastic container which contained what was suspected to be marijuana, reports stated.

Artz told the officer that the pipe and marijuana were hers but that only her friends - Emily Anne Ewins, 18, of the 1400 block of East Fifth Street, who is a student, and a Tucson man identified as Jason James Johnson, 19, of the 3800 block of East Fifth Street - were smoking, reports stated.

The officer separated Johnson and Ewins to question them separately, and they both admitted to smoking marijuana, but said the pipe and marijuana belonged to Artz, reports stated.

Johnson and Ewins also told the officer that Artz had not been smoking, reports stated.

The officer read the three their Miranda rights and cited Johnson and Ewins for unlawful use of marijuana, reports stated.

Artz was cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, reports stated.

All three were released at the scene.

Someone scattered papers inside a car belonging to a UA student Wednesday, reports stated.

The student said he parked his car in a Zone 1 parking lot on East Sixth Street and North Highland Avenue Wednesday and when he returned, noticed that someone had "made a mess" inside the car with several of his papers.

The man told police that nothing was missing from the car and that he had left the door unlocked, report stated.

There are no witnesses or suspects at this time.

A UA employee had his locker broken into for the eighth time Thursday, reports stated.

The employee, who works at University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., said he left several tools, of an unknown value, inside a padlocked locker in the basement of the building before going on vacation, reports stated.

When the employee returned, he noticed the locker was empty and the lock was missing, reports stated.

The employee told police that only employees are allowed access to the room and that he thinks the lock was cut, since only his boss had access to its keys, reports stated.

There are no witnesses or suspects at this time.

A vending machine was broken into and stolen from sometime Wednesday evening, reports stated.

The employee in charge of the machine noticed Thursday morning that the machine, which is inside the Anthropology Building, 1009 E. South Campus Drive, was missing about $200 in cash, reports stated.

The man said the money was in the machine early Wednesday and it appeared that it had been opened with a key, since the machine had not been damaged, reports stated.

Nothing else was stolen from the machine, and there was no evidence of the break-in, reports stated.

There are no witnesses or suspects at this time.

A bicycle tire belonging to a Tucson man was stolen from outside a UA building Tuesday, report stated.

The man said he parked his bicycle outside of the Music Building, 1017 N. Olive Road., with a cable lock Tuesday evening while attending a function inside, reports stated.

After the function, the man noticed the rear tire had been stolen, reports stated.

The man said he did not see anything suspicious in the area, and there are no witnesses or suspects at this time.
