A UA employee reported that he received a threatening letter from a woman who accused him of having an affair with her husband on Sept 5., reports stated.

The custodial employee said the letter accused him of having an affair with the letter writer's husband and that the writer was going "to get what she deserved," reports stated.

A UA student was arrested on possession of marijuana charges after she and her friends locked themselves out of her room on Sept. 4, reports stated.

A man called UAPD after he saw three women passing around a marijuana cigarette near the Arizona Stadium, 525 N. National Championship Dr. The UAPD officer responded and the man said the three women had walked into the La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland, reports stated.

The officer asked the desk clerk to notify him if he saw three women fitting the description provided by the man. Ten minutes later, the desk clerk called UAPD when one girl came to the front desk because she had locked herself out of her room, reports stated.

The officer went to the room and asked the woman and her two friends if they were at the stadium earlier that night. The woman admitted that she and her friends were at the stadium, reports stated.

The officer then asked if they were smoking marijuana, and the woman said that they weren't. The woman allowed the officer to search her room and he found a bag containing a "green leafy substance" in the desk drawer.

When questioned, the woman said that somebody had given her the marijuana and that she did not know what to do with it. The officer asked if the woman had a pipe or any other paraphernalia, and the woman said that she didn't.

After further searching, the officer found a box of Zig-Zag rolling papers in the woman's drawer.

The woman was cited and released at the scene and her friends were not charged, reports stated.

A UA student reported that his Zone 1 parking pass was stolen after he left his car with its top down for six days, reports stated.

The student said he parked his car in the Tyndall Garage, 880 S. Euclid Ave., at 3 p.m. on Aug. 29. When he returned on Sept. 4 at 10 a.m., his Zone 1 parking pass had been taken from the car.

A UA student was cited for a minor in possession charge and false reporting after she lied to police about her name and age after being caught with alcohol on Sept. 4, reports stated.

A UAPD officer saw the woman walking with a 12 ounce Keystone beer in a parking lot, 1423 E. First St., reports stated.

When the officer approached her, the woman threw the beer to the ground. When questioned, the woman gave her name and said she was from California. The name was not recognizable after the officer ran it through the California database.

The woman admitted that she had given a false name and eventually gave her real name, which was also tattooed on her abdomen, reports stated.

A woman's wallet was stolen out of her purse after she left her office door unlocked on Sept. 5, reports stated.

The woman left her office door unlocked at the Comstock House, 1451 N. Warren St., at 8 a.m., and when she returned that evening, her wallet was taken from her purse.
