Three employees had money stolen from their offices Tuesday, university police reports stated.

An employee told officers that $33 was taken from his wallet in a nylon bag in his second-floor office in the McKale Center, 1721 E. Fifth St. He said he did not notice the cash missing immediately, but believes it was taken between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. He said that anybody who went into his office could see the bag, reports stated.

Another second-floor employee told police her change purse was taken from her office during the same time. The purse contained a $5 bill and approximately $1 in change.

Both employees said that their offices are open to the public and that it's not unusual for other employees and members of the public to be in their offices when they are gone, reports stated.

According to a McKale Center secretary, a third employee also had money stolen, but she was out of town and could not speak with police. Officers told the secretary to have the woman call police to report the theft when she returned, reports stated.

There are no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

An employee found a severed cable, combination lock and a bolt cutter March 15 near a campus bike rack, reports stated.

The employee told his supervisor, who called police. The employee said the items were found at approximately 7:20 a.m. near Babcock Residence Hall, 1717 E. Speedway Blvd. There was no bike near the tool or cable.

No reports were filed recently with UAPD about a bike being taken from the residence hall's racks, reports stated.

The items were taken to the University of Arizona Police Department and placed into evidence. There are no suspects or witnesses. There are no serial numbers on the bolt cutter.

A student's bike was stolen from a campus sorority over spring break, reports stated.

The student told police that her $200 mountain bike and $40 U-lock were taken from outside the Chi Omega sorority house, 1420 E. First St. She locked the bike March 8 and realized it was gone eight days later, reports stated.

There are no suspects or witnesses.

A student's $340 sunglasses were taken from a campus building Tuesday morning, reports stated.

She left her purse, which contained a cellular phone, sunglasses, a CatCard, and various credit and bank cards at a table when she went to get a drink of water inside the Integrated Learning Center, 1510 E. University Blvd.

She has canceled the bank and credit cards. There are no suspects or witnesses.

A student's wallet fell out of his pants Tuesday on campus, reports stated.

The student said he believes it fell out of his pocket at about midnight when he was getting out of his friend's Jeep near the east side of the Tyndall Avenue Garage, 880 E. Fourth St.

The wallet contained $20, an Arizona driver's license and a credit card. He told police he called his mother, who canceled the credit card, reports stated.

A mountain bike was stolen from a campus building last week, reports stated.

The student told officers she locked the bike March 18 through the frame and wheel to the north-side racks of the Steward Observatory, 933 N. Cherry Ave. A friend later saw the bike there, but when the student returned Tuesday, it was gone.

The student removed the seat prior to locking it and said she etched her last name near the handlebars. There are no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.
