Police picked up one of two stray dogs near Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd., just after 8 a.m. Monday, reports stated.

An officer saw the dogs and was only able to catch one of them and place it into her patrol vehicle.

The dog was transported to UAPD until Pima County Animal Control arrived to pick it up, reports stated.

The other dog left the scene and could not be found.

The dog did not have any tags so an owner could not be located, reports stated.

A student reported her ex-boyfriend has been constantly contacting her since their breakup in September, reports stated.

The student said when she and her boyfriend, a UA student, decided to end their relationship in September, she asked him to leave her alone and not contact her, reports stated.

After the student told him several times to avoid contact with her, he still called her and contacted her in person several times, reports stated.

The ex-boyfriend even went as far as to call the student's mother.

He has tried to contact the student on UA property in her classrooms and at the Student Recreation Center, but has never threatened her, reports stated.

The student said she wanted the contact to stop and does not want to press charges.

Police told the student her option of obtaining a protection order, and the student said she would only pursue if contact did not stop after police talked to the ex-boyfriend, reports stated.

Police were able to contact the ex-boyfriend by phone and told him not to have any further contact with the student personally, by phone or through a third party, reports stated.

The student's ex-boyfriend agreed not to have any further contact with her, reports stated.

A student in a burgundy van damaged a traffic sign after his vehicle was too tall to clear the Cherry Garage, 1641 E. Enke Drive, at 8:30 p.m. Monday, reports stated.

The student said he entered the garage, which has a 7-foot clearance posted, without any problem, reports stated.

The student drove down the ramp to the second level and hit the green traffic sign and stopped. He tried to exit the garage, but the roof of the van hit the cement frame above him, reports stated.

The student released pressure from his tires and was able to exit the garage without any more trouble, reports stated.

The student told police he was willing to pay for the sign and any other damage he may have caused, reports stated.

Police looked at the sign and saw it was bent but still appeared operational. The concrete frame had scratches and cracks in it but no structural damage was seen, reports stated.

The student's vehicle had damage to the roof that was consistent with that of the frame.

The student said the garage should have signs posted that state the clearance. The officer told the student there are signs at the entrances and the student said he thought that was only the clearance for the entrance or exits, reports stated.

UAPD security inflated the students' tires for him after the incident, reports stated.

A student saw two women and two men throw eggs at the Kappa Alpha Fraternity House, 906 E. First St., around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

The resident told police no damage was caused by the egging, but there were egg and shells in and around the house, reports stated.

The people fled the scene after they threw the eggs.

Police saw egg yolk and shells on the exterior wall and second story window of the house. There was also egg and shells at the east end, inside the building, reports stated.

Police told the student to call UAPD if any damage was found or if the suspects returned.

Police arrested a student for urinating in public near 7 Eleven, 1750 E. Speedway Blvd. at 2:20 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

An officer saw the student urinating on the pavement near the northeast corner of the store, in plain view of other pedestrians, reports stated.

The student told police he had been in Dirtbags Bar, and could not go back in to use the bathroom and did not try to use the facilities at 7 Eleven, reports stated.

Police smelled a strong odor of alcohol on the student, reports stated.

Someone called police after a student was seen looking at child pornography on a computer in the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center, 1500 E. University Blvd., at 2:16 p.m. Saturday, reports stated.

When police arrived, the man was gone, the computer history had been erased and ILC staff was unable to show police what the man had been viewing, reports stated.

Six witnesses in the area said the man was looking at child erotica-type pictures, rather than child pornography, reports stated.

Witnesses said the child in the photographs was clothed and posing in a "sexual" position, report stated.

Police documented the incident and left the computer in the ILC, reports stated.
