A 4-foot-tall saguaro cactus was knocked over and other trees were damaged sometime over the weekend at the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

A grounds employee found the damage at 8 a.m. Monday and said he found a newsstand on top of the cactus that had probably been used to knock it down, reports stated.

The cactus did not seem to have much damage, and the employee said they would try to re-plant it, reports stated.

A student was arrested in the parking lot of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., at 11:12 p.m. for possession of marijuana and narcotic paraphernalia, reports stated.

Police saw a white Jeep in the parking lot, and the breaks light were constantly turning on and off, reports stated.

Police approached the vehicle and could see the student and detected a light odor of fresh marijuana, reports stated.

Police could see a mason jar in the back seat with two dark objects in it. The officer told the student he could smell marijuana and asked what the substance in the jar was, reports stated.

The student hesitated at first but admitted the substance was hashish. He also told police he had a glass pipe in the glove compartment that he used to smoke marijuana and had marijuana in a lock box under his seat, reports stated.

The student said he has the lock box because he didn't want to keep the marijuana in his room in Coronado, reports stated.

He said he purchased three pieces of hash from an unknown person on North Fourth Avenue for $150 because he wanted to try it, reports stated.

Police found an electronic scale in the lock box, and the student said he uses it only when he buys marijuana to ensure he doesn't get cheated, reports stated.

Police did not find any money or additional illegal substances in the vehicle, reports stated.

The student was cited and released, and police placed all the found items in evidence with narcotics testing paperwork attached, reports stated.
