A resident of Kaibab-Huachuca Hall, 922 E. Fourth St., was arrested early Monday morning after a resident assistant reported a liquor violation and possible vapor sniffing by a resident.

The RA said she was in a student's room when she saw a full bottle of rum and a box of nitrous oxide canisters in the refrigerator.

Police responded and asked Sheena L. Baccus, 18, if she had anything in her room that "would be illegal for an 18-year-old to have." Baccus then gave the officer the bottle of rum and a box of "E-Z Whip" whipping cream chargers, which contain pressurized nitrous oxide.

She denied using the gas to inhale, but she had no equipment that the canisters would be used for.

Baccus was charged with minor in possession of a spirituous liquor. She was cited and released.

A resident of Coronado Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., was arrested for minor in possession Saturday after police responded to a call regarding a "large fight."

An officer responded to the call at First Street and Mountain and saw four to five males carrying large pieces of lawn furniture at First and Vine. Another male then began running behind the group.

The officer pursued the subject, Brenner E. Daniels, 18, through the courtyard of Alpha Delta Pi.

When the officer apprehended Daniels, he said the furniture belonged to a sorority, and he and his fraternity brothers were playing a prank.

The furniture was returned, and the sorority elected not to press charges, but the officer noticed Daniels had a strong odor of an intoxicating beverage on his breath and body.

Daniels was charged with minor consumption. He was cited and released.

A student reported the theft of his laptop computer and accessories from McClelland Hall.

The student said he left his computer, etherdock and two power adapters in his assigned cubicle in room 405 at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. When he returned at 8:15 a.m. the next day, the cable lock he used to secure the items was cut and the items were gone.

The value of the laptop was not known, but the other items are valued at $285.
