Police arrested an 18-year-old student early Tuesday morning on charges of minor consumption of alcohol, driving on a suspended license and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Police found Bret Grebow, of Scarsdale, N.Y., also had two warrants out for his arrest on charges of failing to appear in court on charges of possession of marijuana and criminal damage.

Police stopped Grebow's car when they saw him drive north across East Sixth Street on North Park Avenue. Officers noticed an unopened can of beer in the car and Grebow admitted he was coming from a bar.

A check on his license revealed that it was suspended and that he had two warrants out for his arrest. Police then searched his car and found a marijuana pipe. Grebow was taken to Pima County Jail for processing.

An 18-year-old student was arrested early Tuesday morning for disorderly conduct after a community service officer witnessed him throwing trash out of his eighth-floor window at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall.

Thomas Campbell told police he threw a bag of trash including glass bottles and cans, out the window because he said he was too "lazy" to walk to a garbage can. Campbell was cited and released.

Police arrested a 37-year-old female Tuesday afternoon for making harassing phone calls to a Residence Life maintenance employee. They also found property belonging to Residence Life maintenance in her house which she said her husband, a University of Arizona employee, brought home.

Sandra Kmetz, of the 9300 block of South Patricia Drive, admitted to making the phone calls to annoy the employee because she said the employee made comments about being Kmetz's children's stepmother. Kmetz and her husband are in the process of getting a divorce.

Kmetz was not arrested for possession of the Residence Life property found in her home, which included an oak table, bookshelves, telephones and tennis rackets. Police are still investigating.

A Zone Two parking permit was stolen from a car parked at the East Sixth Street and North Cherry Avenue parking garage.

The owner of the permit said he parked his car in the lot on Friday at 10:45 a.m. When he returned at 6:30 p.m., his driver's side window was broken and the permit was missing.

Police said the car had an alarm and it was activated at the time of the burglary.
