The WaWa Food Market on Walnut Street was held up early Sunday morning in one of several weekend incidents, including the theft of two Jeeps, according to University Police. The store was robbed early Sunday morning by a man who pretended to have a weapon, University Police Sergeant Thomas Messner said last night. Nobody was hurt in the incident. In an unrelated incident, a man was arrested for disorderly conduct early Saturday morning, Messner said. The man was allegedly drunk and was misusing the University's emergency phone system. The phones, which have blue lights above them, alert University Police when they are taken off the hook. Also, two Jeeps were stolen from University lot No. 13 over the weekend, Messner said. The vehicles, a Cherokee and a Wagoneer, were stolen from the lot located on Walnut Street between 36th and 37th streets. It is not clear whether the thefts were related. In a separate incident, several Temple University students visited campus this weekend and allegedly stole a sign from Parkway Program Gamma, located on Walnut Street near 39th Street, Messner said. The students were not criminally charged in the Friday incident, Messner said, but they have been referred to Temple's judicial system. There were 14 other minor thefts this weekend. Messner said that car radios, wallets, bicycles, a coat and a beeper were reported stolen in the period from Thursday night until last night. Bicycles were stolen from the Palladium and Steinberg-Dietrich Hall this weekend. In additon, two fire alarms sounded at High Rise South this weekend, both the result of bad cooking, Messner said.
