Crapped Out

West Valencia Road and South Sandario Road, May 12, 11:11 a.m.

A Tucson woman is fed up with her neighbor's parties that leave her yard trashed and--on one occasion--resulted in a water meter covered in excrement, according to a report from the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The woman told a PCSD telephone operator that the people across the street don't pick up paper plates, plastic forks and beer bottles from their soirees, which then blow into her yard.

In addition, she awoke one morning to find that someone defecated on the water meter in front of her house.

Her neighbors warned her not to go to the police "or else something will happen to her," the report stated.


Foot Fight

West Ajo Highway and South Sierrita Mountain Road, May 15, 7:30 a.m.

According to a PCSD report, a young girl's mother stepped on a boy's foot when her daughter complained he'd done the same to her.

The boy's mother told PCSD telephone operator Cheryl Zimmer that her son was in line to go to class at Mary E. Dill Primary School, 10451 S. Sasabe Road.

When the girl complained, her mother stepped on the boy's foot and said, "If he touched her daughter again, she would smash his foot," the boy's mother continued.

The boy denied stepping on anyone's foot.

He went to the school nurse, where it was noted he had a bruised foot. The boy's mother and school officials do not know the identity of the girl's mom.


What Every Car Needs

East Sixth Street and North Vine Avenue, May 16, 9:37 p.m.

An officer who pulled over a Jeep Cherokee for cruising down the sidewalk discovered an anti-tobacco sign believed to have been stolen from a Tucson school, a University of Arizona police report stated.

During the stop, Officer J. Brei noticed a half-full bottle of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum in plain sight. Underneath the bottle was a sign reading "Tobacco Free Zone," with a screwdriver on top of it, the report stated.

The driver reportedly said the rum was his and that the sign was a gift from a friend.

A check with Tucson Police Department revealed signs of the same description were lifted from Apollo Middle School, 265 W. Nebraska St.

Brei confiscated the sign for proof of ownership and poured the rum out at the scene.

The man was cited for sidewalk driving and underage possession of alcohol, then released.
