A 42-year-old man was arrested Wednesday afternoon at 1010 N. Martin Ave. after residents complained he was living behind their residence.
Warren Thomas Amory, no address given, was arrested for illegal trespass shortly before 1:30 p.m. after a student called police and reported a man was behind her residence and carrying a golf club.
When police responded to the report, they found a basement door open behind the complex and a golf club inside. Amory exited after police called to see who was inside. Police reported Amory is a transient and when asked if he knew living in the building was wrong, he said, "Legally? Yeah, I know."
Amory was cited and released on site.
Three juvenile females were arrested and charged with possession of illegal substances Wednesday at the corner of East Sixth Street and North Santa Rita Avenue after police noticed the three females huddled around a trash bin next to a convenience store.
Two of the females, ages 14 and 13, entered the store as police approached the third girl, 13, who said they were just "smoking cigarettes." As the other two girls exited the store, police noticed the 14-year-old had a clear plastic bag in her front shirt pocket.
The female agreed to let police see the bag, which contained a "green, leafy substance." The female said she found the bag in her back yard but was not sure what it was or what she planned to do with it.
The 14-year-old was charged with possession of marijuana and the 13-year-olds were charged with possession of tobacco. All three were taken to UAPD headquarters and released to family members.
A UA employee reported witnessing the theft of another employee's 1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo on Tuesday afternoon from a campus warehouse.
The victim reported her vehicle stolen shortly after 1 p.m. to UAPD. The witness said he noticed two young Hispanic males doing something under the dash of the Cherokee and more young Hispanic males in a blue blazer near by. They were all wearing white T-shirts.
As the witness approached, the Cherokee left the parking lot and proceeded west on 22nd Street. Police were unable to witness any signs of forced entry into the vehicle.
