The pizza deliveryman said he parked his car outside the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., and left his keys in the ignition at 1:47 a.m., reports stated.

The man said he was out of the car for about one minute when he heard someone drive it away, reports stated.

The man said the only characteristic he noticed about the thief was the man or woman had brown hair, reports stated.

Police recovered the car later that day on North 10th Avenue and West Plata Street, reports stated.

A student was arrested for stealing shot glasses and a cap from the UofA Bookstore, 1209 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

Employees noticed the student taking three shot glasses and a cap embroidered with an "A", reports stated.

Employees asked him to not leave the premises but the student started to run, reports stated.

One security guard grabbed him and put the student in a headlock, reports stated.

The student admitted to stealing the items and said he needed the shot glasses because he broke two of his own the previous weekend, reports stated.

The student said he needed the hat for his summer vacation in California because it "is cold there," reports stated.

Police viewed the bookstore's security camera footage, and it matched the employees' and student's stories, reports stated.

The student added he could have "taken" the security guard who apprehended him because he wrestled in high school, but he knew it would not be the right thing to do, reports stated.

The three shot glasses and cap totaled $28.30, reports stated.

The student was cited and released for shoplifting.

An employee contacted police to report a threatening e-mail that was sent to the general UA alumni Web account, reports stated.

The e-mail did not make sense but mentioned murder and other threats including "I won't hesitate to kill them if they don't stop harassing me," "I'll get them" and "people from the UA that are already dead," reports stated.

The e-mail was sent from a UA alumnus who is on the alumni mailing list, reports stated.

The employee said she was not threatened by the e-mail but felt it was necessary to report it to police, reports stated.

A man was arrested for trespassing in the Blockbuster video store May 4 after he was asked three times to leave and urinated on himself, reports stated.

Police arrived around 4:13 p.m. to Blockbuster, 1927 E. Speedway Blvd., and found the man was sitting outside the store in a pool of his own urine, reports stated.

A Blockbuster employee said she asked the man to leave several times, but he continued to come back, reports stated.

The man was cited for trespassing and released at the scene.
