Two people were seen naked in a car that was parked in an area blocked off by a locked gate at the West Campus Agriculture Center, 2831 N. Freeway Road, Saturday afternoon, reports stated.

An employee told police he saw a vehicle parked by the "Bee Lab" building. He went to check on the car and saw two mostly unclothed people, reports stated.

He said he saw a man that seemed to be straddling another person, reports stated.

The employee told police all he could see of the other person was cleanly shaven legs. He assumed it was a female but was not sure because the person never exposed their entire body and he did not want to go any closer, reports stated.

The employee was unable to get a license plate number because the car drove away too quickly, reports stated.

He told police it was unusual the man knew the combination to the lock on the gate to get in, reports stated.

The employee told police he was going to advise the department to change the lock, reports stated.

He believed the man was not an employee or a student, reports stated.


A man was seen taking two bicycle seats off of bikes outside of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., Saturday afternoon, reports stated.

Police found the man and saw two bicycle seats in a milk crate on the rear of his bicycle, reports stated.

Police saw a car pulled over and as they turned around, the car left the curb and began to accelerate as the police tried to follow, reports stated.

As police followed the car, its rear lights shut off and police thought the car was attempting to evade them, reports stated.

Once police turned on their overhead lights the car pulled over, reports stated.

The driver of the car told police that he and the passenger had pulled over to pick up a chair placed as trash on the curb. He told police he thought he may have an electric short, which is why his rear lights shut off, reports stated.

Police searched his backpack and found a glass vial with white residue and a straw with a baggie containing white residue, reports stated.

The man told police the vial was his and he forgot it was there. He said it was possibly meth or cocaine, reports stated.
