The wash was known for having stolen bike parts and being a haven for drug use, reports stated.

One of the checks was made out to Denny's for $21, reports stated.

A man who was drinking in an alley near 7-Eleven, 1750 E. Speedway Blvd., was arrested for trespassing and having four active warrants late Sunday night, reports stated.

40-ounce bottle of Steel Reserve.

Police cited one student for drinking underage and another for having a fake ID early Saturday morning after they got a report that someone was smoking marijuana at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., reports stated.
