Someone broke the passenger's side window of an employee's vehicle sometime Monday morning while it was parked near Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., and a purse containing a $5,000 diamond ring, and a $900 diamond and gold tennis bracelet was missing along with other items, reports stated.

The employee said she parked her car in the lot east of the stadium at 3 a.m. and noticed the broken window at 7:08 a.m., reports stated.

A suspicious man on a bike was seen loitering in the area around 3:10 a.m. Employees asked him if he needed any assistance. He said no, and the employees walked away, reports stated.

Someone charged $160.18 on a student's CatCard sometime between Saturday night and Monday, reports stated.

The student said he last used his CatCard at Cellar in Wilbur's Underground in the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University Blvd., at 11:24 p.m. Saturday, reports stated.

The student noticed his card was missing and contacted the CatCard office on Monday, reports stated.

The office provided a transcript of the card's use, and the student noticed four unauthorized charges to his meal plan account, reports stated.

The card was used by the unknown person twice at Cellar around 3:30 a.m. Sunday and again used for a Papa John's delivery at 2:15 p.m. and 3:08 p.m. Sunday, reports stated.

Police contacted the Papa John's location, and the driver said he had delivered the orders to Babcock Residence Hall, 1717 E. Speedway Blvd., and the purchaser used the card in question, reports stated.

The driver said the photo on the CatCard looked like the purchaser, and he could identify him if he saw him again, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

A student was arrested for underage drinking early Sunday morning after paramedics had to transport her from Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, 610 N. Highland Ave., to University Medical Center after she was throwing up excessively and unconscious, reports stated.

Police spoke with the student at 12:40 a.m. in her room, and she told them she had "three, four, five, six, seven, eight vodka tonics," and said she did not remember where she was drinking, reports stated.

She was transported to UMC and police met with her again at 4:19 a.m. She said she did not need a ride home from the hospital because her parents were in town visiting, reports stated.

The student was cited and released, reports stated.

An unknown person sprayed a fire extinguisher in a study room on the sixth floor of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., around 2:10 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

Police stopped to check on a student when he was seen staring at a wall on the south side of Hopi Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fourth St., at 7:36 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

The student's eyes were watery and bloodshot, and his pupils were small, reports stated.

The officer did not smell any alcohol on the student's breath, and his blood alcohol level was found to be .000 after he agreed to a voluntary field sobriety test, reports stated.

The student said he and his friends had gone to Mexico the night before and he was given four "somas," reports stated.
