Police were called to Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., early Monday morning to respond to a report of a student who overdosed on hallucinogenic mushrooms.

When police arrived they said the 19-year-old student was agitated and breathing very fast. She was lying on a bed and refused to talk to police.

The student's friend, who called police, said they had driven back from Phoenix late Sunday night and believed she ate the mushrooms during the ride to Tucson. He said he did not know how many mushrooms she had eaten but that they had bought them from an unknown man at a rest stop.

The student was taken to University Medical Center for treatment.

Someone stole a pink wrought-iron patio set from Delta Gamma sorority, 1448 E. 1st St., between Jan. 16 and Jan. 31.

The house director said she did not report the theft, which also included a wood end table and silk plant, because she thought it was a fraternity prank on the sorority. She said students do not have keys to the patio, which is kept locked.

The value of the items was not known.

A student reported the theft of her $850 bicycle from the north side of the Music building Monday.

The victim said she locked her purple Trek 930 mountain bicycle with a cable lock to a parking block at 10:30 a.m. and when she returned two hours later the bicycle and lock were missing. A friend told police she saw the bicycle still locked to the post at 11:30 a.m.

Someone stole a white Raleigh cross-trainer bicycle Friday from an area near the Harshbarger building.

The victim said he locked the bicycle to itself at 12:30 p.m. and when he returned at 3 p.m. the bicycle was missing.

This incident occurred at about the same time two men were seen loading bicycles into a brown van parked in the area.

Police are investigating.

A man was arrested Monday morning for trying to sell stolen textbooks back to the ASUA bookstore.

Police arrested a man with a social security card that identified him as Michael Ybarra, of the 7600 block of Camino Montaray, but police were unable to confirm the identification.

ASUA security guards were alerted to the description of the man by an employee of the Arizona Bookstore, 815 N. Park Ave., who said she saw him steal two books from there earlier in the morning.

The suspect was taken to Pima County jail and processed. The books were valued at $105.
