Police Reports: October 16-21

The following information was taken from incident reports filed by officers at UCAPD. The reports are made available by university police after they are approved by a supervisor. That process takes a few days, which delays our report. This is a complete report of incidents filed for October 16-21.


October 16

  • Student Robert Arnold, 21, had the spare tire off his Jeep stolen in the Robins Street parking lot. A Grassroots Lawncare employee, John Riggins, reported at about 4:22 p.m. that he noticed lug nuts on the pavement behind the Jeep, and that the spare tire was missing. Arnold was contacted and arrived shortly thereafter. Arnold said he didn’t know the tire was missing and someone must have stolen it. Arnold said he parked his Jeep on October 5 around 11 p.m. Arnold said he looks at his vehicle almost every day but doesn’t pay attention to the rear.
