Police Beat

By Kristopher Califano

University Police arrested a man and escorted three others out of a UA building early Tuesday morning, reports stated.

Officers went to the Main Library, 1510 E. University Ave., to speak with individuals asleep in the building.

Police awoke two Tucson men and escorted them out of the building after they told officers that they were not affiliated with the UA. The two men were warned that sleeping in the library again would result in their arrest.

Officers told a UA student that she had to leave the library after she told officers that she left her CatCard at her residency. Officers told her that she was welcomed to come back when she retrieved her CatCard.

Police also spoke with John Turner, 49, of the 1700 block of East Broadway Boulevard, after they saw him sleeping in the library. Officers performed a background check and learned that Turner had warrants issued for his arrest concerning an assault charge. He was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail, reports stated.

A student lost her money while using an escort service Tuesday night, reports stated.

The student left her purse on a ASUA Escort Service van at 10 p.m. and called the service when she realized what she had done. She told employees that her leopard-skin purse contained $20 and a cellular phone. The escort service employee told the student that they were very busy and would look for the purse later.

The student was called by an unidentified male employee and told that they had her wallet, but they were too busy to drop off her purse at that time.

At midnight, the student called the escort service to see when she could get her purse back. The Escort Service told her that they did not have her purse and that there must have been a miscommunication, reports stated.

The student then called her cellular phone, and an unidentified person answered the phone and then hung up, reports stated.

She then called police and reported her wallet stolen and told officers that her purse and its contents are worth $190.

UA Parking and Transportation employees found a stolen car Tuesday afternoon near campus, reports stated.

Employees called police when they noticed that a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra parked at 1236 N. Martin Ave. had been damaged.

Police came to the scene and performed a background check on the vehicle. Officers learned that the car had been reported stolen. Officers contacted the owner and told him where he could pick up his car. Police did not try to find fingerprints on the vehicle due to the rain the previous night.

University police went to a residence hall Tuesday night to speak with a student concerning marijuana, reports stated.

A student at the Cochise Residence Hall, 1018 E. South Campus Dr., told officers that his roommate dropped off a bag of marijuana in his desk drawer and then left the room. While speaking with police, the student's roommate returned to the room. Officers told Paul Wallat, 19, that they knew he had marijuana in his desk. Wallat gave his 4.2 grams of marijuana, three smoking pipes and bag of filters to police, reports stated.

Wallat was placed into the Dean of Students' Diversion Program and released at the scene.

A UA student called police after he was the victim of a hit-and-run accident near a campus residence hall Tuesday afternoon.

The student was northbound on North Campbell Avenue when his vehicle was struck by a vehicle turning south onto Campbell Avenue from East Speedway Boulevard. The student avoided the head-on collision by swerving out of the way. However, the other vehicle struck his bumper and drove away, reports stated.

He called police from Babcock Inn, 1717 E. Speedway Blvd., and told officers that there was damage done to his rear fender after colliding with the late 1990s red Chevrolet Camaro. Officers went to the residence hall and confirmed that the bumper had been bent in the collision, reports stated. There are no suspects at this time.
