A man was warned to have more patience on the road Wednesday, after he called a UA employee a "Fuckin' asshole" while driving on campus, reports stated.

At about 10 a.m., police went to Campus Health, 1541 E. University Blvd., to meet with an employee reporting a case of "road rage."

The employee said he was in his truck on East University Blvd., just west of North Cherry Avenue, giving directions to a person in another truck, when a man passed by him and said, "Fuckin' asshole," reports stated.

The man then parked at Campus Health and went inside. Police met the driver, who said he told the trucks to move but did not curse. He said he became upset when the two trucks were blocking access to the Campus Health parking lot for over five minutes, reports stated.

Police warned him to be more patient because of congestion. The man agreed he needed to be more patient, and apologized to the officer for his actions, reports stated.

Two Pepsi machines on campus were broken into and damaged Wednesday, reports stated.

At 7:30 a.m., police met with a man who said $40 had been stolen from the two machines on the first floor of the Economics building, 1110 E. North Campus Drive.

The man said he last saw the machines on Feb. 15 and found them broken into and damaged at 6:40 a.m. Wednesday, reports stated.

The metal under the locks had been bent where someone used an item to pop the lock.

Police did not try to lift fingerprints from the machines because they had already been repaired and serviced.

There are no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

Two drills worth $200 each were stolen from a campus residence hall Wednesday, reports stated.

At 1:30 p.m., police met with an employee at Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fifth St.

The employee said he was working on the third floor of the dorm when he went to lunch at noon. He left his cart with the drills in the hallway on the third floor. He returned 30 minutes later and found a cordless drill and an electric drill missing from the cart.

He did not know the serial numbers of the drills. Both drills belonged to UA.

There are no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A student contacted police Wednesday after her car was broken into and her car stereo stolen, reports stated.

The student told officers she parked her car in the parking lot at 1635 E. First St. at 7:40 a.m. She went to class and returned at 9:45 a.m. to find the locking mechanism on her passenger door missing. She found her passenger seat in a reclined position, and her car stereo was missing. The stereo dash cover was removed and broken into pieces, reports stated.

The car did not have an alarm but was locked before the theft.

The passenger door was dusted for fingerprints but none were found.

There were no other items missing, and no other damage was done to the car.

There are no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A student reported her CatCard stolen Wednesday after someone used it to check out books at the library on Feb. 1, reports stated.

The student told police on Jan. 31 she was using the copy machines at the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd., and paid with her CatCard. She left the card in the machine, and the next day, she realized she had left it there.

She checked the library for any information on her card and learned someone had used her card to check out books on Feb 1.

It is unknown who took the card or checked out the books, reports stated.

A student reported his passenger side window was shattered Wednesday, reports stated.
