A 22-year-old student was arrested and charged with criminal nuisance Monday after a dispute over the ownership of a bicycle at the Student Recreation Center.

Police arrested Neal Markowitz, of the 1400 block of East Mabel, when a student claimed the bicycle he was riding was stolen from her in May

The student did not have a serial number for the bicycle but said she could identify it because she had the handlebars shortened for a better fit. Markowitz said he had borrowed the bicycle from his roommate.

A routine check of Markowitz revealed a warrant for his arrest for criminal nuisance.

He was taken to UAPD for processing.

Police arrested a 19-year-old student for possession of stolen property when they saw a "no trespassing" sign that belongs to the Marana Flood Control District on his residence hall room door.

While investigating another call at Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall, police passed the room of Carter Todd and noticed the sign.

Todd admitted that he owned the sign and said he found it in a field in Phoenix.

Todd was cited and released.

A resident of Maricopa Residence Hall told police she received a harassing phone call Monday from a man impersonating a Pima County Health Services employee.

The victim said the caller told her he was conducting a survey. But as the questions became increasingly sexually oriented, she hung up.

The Pima County Health Services Department said it was not conducting a survey but that several people have called with similar inquiries.

Police have no suspects.
