Two men were arrested and charged Monday for criminal trespass after police noticed them sleeping on the top level of the Park Avenue parking garage.
Clyde P. Weaver, 32, of the 700 block of South Stone Avenue, and Tim M. Reynolds, 36, same address, were arrested after police noticed the two males sleeping on blankets on the concrete floor of the garage about 9 p.m. Police noticed three bottles of Old Milwaukee beer, one of which was open, next to the men.
Weaver took a drink from the open bottle when police woke the men up. Police told Weaver he could be arrested for drinking in public and should dispose of the beer. He took another drink and disposed of the beer. Reynolds agreed to sign a citation of criminal tresspass and was then released.
Weaver, who refused to sign the citation, was taken to UAPD, where he was booked on charges of failing to sign a citation to appear in court and criminal tresspass.
Police then found a letter in Weaver's posession from Tucson City Court with instructions that he should not have failure to appear charges brought against him. Police removed the charges from the booking form.
Two UAPD officers assisted the state's gang task force with the apprehension of seven suspected juvenile gang members Monday in the drainage tunnels near East Tenth Street and North Bean Avenue.
Police arrested and charged the juveniles with health, welfare and moral violations for being in the tunnels.
A UA employee reported her $140 blue parking permit was stolen from her car in a parking lot near East First Street and North Vine Avenue between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday.
The employee said she returned to her car and found her door lock was damaged and her parking permit missing. The employee said she is almost certain the permit was in her car before she left for work. She was not sure if the lock damage was related to the missing permit.
Tempe police reported "A" Mountain, 100 E. Third Street in Tempe, was painted red and blue sometime Monday evening. The "A" was painted red on the left side and blue on the right side. No arrests were made.
