Police were unable to find an owner to pick up the Ford, reports stated.

A glass crack pipe was found Tuesday night in a room at the Apache Santa Cruz Residence Hall, reports stated.

When police arrived a student told them she and her friend had found the pipe. The student said they were in her room when she and her friend accidentally knocked over a pink case on the desk.

The student said a blue bag fell out of the case. The blue bag had a glass pipe in it, reports stated.

The student said she had then put the pipe back into the case.

The student said she used to be an Emergency Medical Technician and was familiar with drug paraphernalia.

The student's friend told police she had worked as a "police explorer" and also knew what drug paraphernalia looked like.

Both students told police the pipe had looked like a crack pipe.

When the student's roommate came back to the room police asked her about the pipe.

The student told police they could search the room. Police didn't find anything else, reports stated.

Police contacted the roommate's friend who admitted the pipe was his.
