Andrew L. Frei, 21, of the 700 block of East Fifth Street, and Daniel D. Cuniberti, 19, of Santa Rosa, Calif., were arrested after police saw four men matching the descriptions and carrying a large sign west- bound in an alley toward Coronado Residence Hall.

A 31-year-old man was arrested and charged Sunday afternoon with attempted larceny and criminal trespassing after police received reports that a man on the fourth floor of the Science-Engineering Library was seen trying to take items from people's backpacks.

Christopher J. Charlton, of the 900 block of South Norris Street, was arrested after police interviewed a student who was studying on the fourth floor of the science library. The witness said she saw a man reach into a bag that did not belong to him and "feel around" the bag although he did not remove anything.

Another witness pointed Charlton out and police confronted him. He initially denied being on the fourth floor of the library, then admitted he was there and trying to steal items for money.


A 41-year-old male was arrested and charged Sunday with criminal trespassing after a UAPD officer noticed a man on campus who had previously been arrested for criminal trespassing.

David Holt, of the 200 block of East Fifth Street, told the officer he was a student at the UA. Police did a background check and found Holt was not a UA student.

Holt was ordered by UAPD in October to stay off campus. He was taken to Pima County Jail and booked.
