Police arrested a 21-year-old UA football player for larceny from a coin operated machine Thursday after he was seen striking a parking meter on East Enke Drive.

Police were called by a parking and transportation employee who said he saw Jonathan Prasuhn, of the 2700 block of N. Peter Seward Drive, hit a parking meter which then registered two hours of time. When questioned by police, Prasuhn admitted to striking the meter. He was cited and released.

Police noted no damage was done to the meter.

A 24-year-old man was arrested twice last week for trespassing in the Harshbarger Building and for stealing a bicycle.

Rodney Lindsey, of the 1300 block of South Fourth Avenue, was arrested Wednesday for trespassing after he refused to heed a warning by police to leave the computer lab in the Harshbarger Building. Because Lindsey is not a student, he is not allowed use of UA computers.

On Thursday, Lindsey was arrested a second time after police witnessed him stealing a bicycle.

Police were flagged down by a man near campus who said he saw a suspicious person lurking in the bicycle racks in front of the Harshbarger building.

Officers observed a man, later identified as Lindsey, walking through various bicycle racks and pulling on locks. After checking several bicycle locks, Lindsey was seen taking an unsecured black Schwinn one-speed bicycle which he claimed was his.

When questioned by police Lindsey admitted to attempting to steal bicycles from campus.

Lindsey was taken to Pima County Jail for processing.

Police found a bag of marijuana and a water bong in the Park Avenue garage, 1140 N. Park Ave., after they saw several youths running from the area on March 10.

An officer patrolling the garage said she saw four males gathered in a corner on the fourth floor. When they saw the officer, she said, they ran down a nearby staircase.

When the officer approached the area she found a plastic bag of marijuana and a red and white Graffix bong.

No suspects were found in the area.
