Police found political graffiti on the Chemistry and Biological Sciences building, 1340 E. University Blvd., and on the School of Renewable Resources building, 1488 E. Sixth St., around 5 a.m. Wednesday, reports stated.

A custodian reported that someone had sprayed the words "ballot," "apathy" and "ignorance" in blue paint on the north wall of the CBS building, reports stated.

A student reported seeing the Renewable Resources building undamaged while out for a walk around 3 a.m.

When he walked past the building again at 5:13 a.m. he noticed the word "assassinate" written in blue spray paint on the side of the building, reports stated.

Police took photos of each incident and placed them into evidence.

Police believe the situations may be related.

Police have no suspects or other witnesses.

A man who claimed to have a government implant in his ear entered a code into a student's cell phone Wednesday afternoon while the student was waiting for the CatTran in front of the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., reports stated.

The man approached the student because he thought he was wearing a White Stripes T-shirt, and the two began talking about the band, reports stated.

The man told the student he lived eight miles from campus and asked him to call SafeRide for him.

The student called and got the voicemail, and the man asked if he could use the phone. The student said, "sure," reports stated.

The man quickly dialed, "0101010101111100011001111111111000" into the phone and pressed send, reports stated.

The student took his phone back immediately and the phone call did not go through, reports stated.

The student asked the man what he did and the man said he didn't know, but maybe it would make the phone perform better, reports stated.

The man told the student there was chip implanted in his ear, which was put there by the government and said, "Do you want the truth or bullshit?" reports stated.

The student said the truth and the man said to him twice, "They have called 911 on me before," reports stated.

The student didn't know what the man was referring to and said he didn't make any sense at all, reports stated.

The student believed the man was mentally unstable and the man said to him, "Please don't beat me up," and got on the CatTran and was last seen heading toward North Mountain Avenue, reports stated.

The student successfully used the phone to report the incident to UAPD. The student said he did not notice anything wrong with the phone and just wanted to report the unusual incident, reports stated.

Police were unable to provide any information on the code and advised the student to contact his cell phone provider and report the problem and to take the phone to a service person to check for any viruses, reports stated.

No criminal violation was reported, and the student just told police he wanted to make the general public, especially female students, aware of the suspicious man, reports stated.

A student's $2,200 Tiffany & Co. diamond and sapphire ring was stolen from the women's community shower room in Pinal Residence Hall, 1511 E. Sixth St., sometime the last week of September, reports stated.

The student said she showered the week of Sept. 19 to Sept. 26 and took her ring off and put it in the shower's soap dish, reports stated.

She left the shower, forgetting about he ring and didn't realize until a few days later the ring was missing, reports stated.

The student said she has only taken the ring to the shower with her two or three times this semester, reports stated.

The student went back to the shower to check for the ring and it was not there. She checked with lost and found and no one had reportedly found it, reports stated.

The student said she did not immediately report the theft because she thought someone would return it to her, reports stated.

The student said she always removed the ring before showering and this particular instance she forgot to take it with her, reports stated.

The student does not believe the ring was taken from her room because no one knows the place she hides it, and she does not suspect her former roommate or anyone in particular, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.
