Tianna M. Morrow, 26, of Urbana, was arrested at 10:45 a.m. Wednesday near Sixth and Wright streets, Champaign, on a Champaign County warrant for failure to appear in court and a city of Champaign warrant for retail theft. Police initially were called to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building, 306 N. Wright St., Urbana, to escort two people from the building who were found sleeping in a stairwell. One of those people refused to identify herself and walked away. A short time later, investigating officers identified her as Morrow and learned of the outstanding warrants. They caught up to her several blocks away.
