An 18-year-old man was arrested and charged Wednesday with posession of marijuana at the corner of East Sixth Street and North Vine Avenue.

Hiram G. Cuello, of the 1400 block of West Delaware Avenue, was arrested after police noticed three males, who officers thought were dressed like gang members, traveling west on Sixth Street from North Cherry Avenue, an area where several vehicles have been stolen over the past few weeks, police reported.

Police reported one of the men acted like he was going to run. Police confronted the three men, who said they missed first period at Tucson High School.

Police found marijuana wrapped in paper in Cuello's right sock. He was cited and released.


A UA employee witnessed three men burglarizing a KUAT truck Wednesday in the Administration building parking garage. When the three men noticed the witness was watching them, they left.

KUAT officials reported a $112 cellular phone and a $300 parking gate card missing. The three men were described as white and in their early 20s. Two of the men were wearing white shirts and baseball caps. Police have no suspects.


A 20-year-old UA student was arrested and charged with theft of services Wednesday after Parking and Transportation Services noticed a stolen parking permit in an unauthorized vehicle.

Shannon M. Weatherly, of the 1200 block of Golden Gem Road, was cited and released Wednesday after police confronted her about the stolen permit. Weatherly said she borrowed the permit from a "friend" she does not know very well. She told police she did not know the permit was stolen.


A UA employee reported that 36 unapproved long-distance phone calls were made between July 23 and Sept. 29 from various locations around campus.

The employee reported the phone calls were made to several cities around the country at "all hours" of the day. The employee said the caller used the long-distance clearence code of an administrator working in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Center.

The employee said the calls originated from the Medical Library, the Main Library, the McKale Center CATS office and the King center. The administrator kept the clearance code written inside a drawer in her desk.

Police are continuing their investigation.
