ASU Police reported the following incidents Tuesday:


A man was arrested Feb. 6 at the 400 block of East University Drive on suspicion of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession, according to a police report.

While on early morning patrol, police followed the smell of marijuana coming from a truck in Parking Structure 4, police reported.

Police saw two men get into a truck in the bottom level of the garage and drive south onto Rural Road, according to the report.

After stopping the men, police detected the smell of marijuana and asked the man, who was driving, and a passenger to exit the vehicle, police reported.

Police saw a jar containing one ounce of marijuana sitting in plain view, without searching the vehicle, police reported.

The man was arrested and transported to the ASU Police Department, according to the report.


On Feb 6, police were dispatched to the 900 block of South Forest Mall following a report of criminal damage, according to a police report.

When police arrived, they found two glass windows had been broken on the first level of Lattie Coor Hall, police reported.

Police contacted ASU facilities maintenance, who said each window was valued at $500, according to the report.

While the windows, in a stairwell on the northwest corner of the building were broken by persons unknown, police do not believe anyone was able to gain access to the building, police reported.


A woman's bag containing a portable microphone and camera battery was allegedly stolen on Feb. 6 near the intersection of North 1st and East Fillmore streets, according to a police report.

The woman rented items for an assignment from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, police reported.

While using the camera to take photographs, the woman left the bag in some bushes, according to the report.

When the woman returned to retrieve the bag a few minutes later, it was missing, police reported.

The woman did not remember seeing anyone suspicious in the area, and several students working in the area did not see anyone take the bag, according to the report.

The names of the brands of the stolen items were taken down by police, as well as serial numbers provided by the check-out sheet from the Cronkite school, police reported.
