Four juveniles and one adult male were arrested and charged with marijuana possession and conspiracy to commit bicycle theft Thursday afternoon.

Albert D. Chapman, 18, of the 800 block of West Virginia Avenue, was arrested about 4 p.m. after officers found him carrying a black bag with bolt cutters. Police said two of the males arrested admitted they were on campus and "looking at bikes."

Officers responded to reports of four males near the Coronado Residence Hall bicycle racks. The four males then met with a fifth male and walked to the bicycle racks near the Center for English as a Second Language building and Education building. The males split up again.

Two of the males ran from between the Economics building and Speech building after officers confronted them. The males threw clear plastic bags on the ground and tried to bury another two bags, which contained a green substance.

Officers found another plastic bag with green, leafy particles in another of the juvenile's pockets, which the male called "crust." Officers arrested and charged a 13-year-old male with health and welfare violations.

All of the males were taken to UAPD headquarters, processed and released to family members.


An unidentified male attempted to pry open a bathroom window Thursday morning at the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house, 1435 E. Second St. Witnesses described the male as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall, slim, wearing a baseball cap with a white and red bill, blue jeans, a light blue T-shirt and a dark backpack.

The sorority mother said a similar incident occurred last Monday when a male matching the same description tried to pry open the same window. Police consider the two incidents related and will continue the investigation.


A UA employee reported he is being harassed by his ex-girlfriend.

The victim told UA police Thursday that his ex-girlfriend has been harassing his current girlfriend and believes the suspect is following them around. The victim told UAPD the suspect has repeatedly blocked in his car with her truck on campus.

The victim said he is concerned because the suspect took a hunting rifle from her ex-husband when they divorced last year and threatened to kill her ex-husband. The victim said he plans to have a restraining order put on the suspect.
