An employee received a suspicious e-mail from a man Thursday asking her to assist him in stealing $20 million, reports stated.

The employee said she checked her e-mail in the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd., and opened a message from a man she did not know, reports stated.

The e-mail asked the employee to help remove $20 million from a $4 billion fund without the knowledge of the Palestine government, reports stated.

The employee said this was the only e-mail she received from the man and suspected the message was fraudulent, reports stated.

The employee did not want University of Arizona Police Department to investigate the e-mail and said she just wanted to document that she received it, reports stated.

A man backed his United Postal Service vehicle into the Associated Students of the University of Arizona loading dock, 1209 E. University Blvd., Thursday, reports stated.

The vehicle hit the garage door and left a large dent at 2:10 p.m., reports stated.

The garage door was halfway open, and the top of the UPS vehicle hit the bottom of the door, reports stated.

ASUA and UPS were both given case numbers, and police were unable to estimate the cost of the damage, reports stated.

A student's spoiler was stolen off his car sometime between March 14 and 15 while it was in the Park Avenue Parking Garage, 1140 N. Park Ave., reports stated.

The student parked his car at 12:30 p.m., and when he returned the next day at 1:40 p.m., the spoiler on the back of his car was gone, reports stated.

Police arrived on the scene and the student pointed out two similar scratch marks on both sides of the car, reports stated.

Near the scratches were chipped paint and dents, and police concluded they were pry marks, reports stated.

Wires were hanging from the car in the place where the spoiler used to be, reports stated.

An employee said he noticed the damage around 1:40 p.m. on March 15, reports stated.

The student said nothing was missing from the car, and police found no fingerprints or shoeprints, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

An employee reported she received two suspicious packages Thursday in the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

The two packages were identical and both were labeled "To the Principle same as Shirley Chu," reports stated.

Police opened one of the packages and found a pair of white panties and a pair of blue panties, reports stated.

A note near the panties said, "To Shirley Chu, 29th November 2004, Pay to the order of Margaret Chu, $50,000,000,000.00, 50 billion dollars of cheque (sic) memo, excretion of sperm and eggs, Shirley Chu less than 1 cent," reports stated.

Police opened the second package and found two pairs of maroon panties with the same note except the date read "7th March 2005," reports stated.

The packages were from Los Angeles and sent first class, reports stated.

Police transported the boxes and notes to evidence.

Someone collided with a student's car Thursday when she was trying to turn into a Zone 1 lot, 1400 E. Sixth St., reports stated.

The student said she was in the left turn lane when a man driving a gray car hit the driver's side of her car, reports stated.

The student said the man in the gray car did not stop and drove west on East Sixth Street, reports stated.

Police found gray paint on the student's car door and a 3-foot-by-1-foot dent, reports stated.

A broken license plate cover was near the collision and police concluded it belonged to the car that left the scene, reports stated.
