A man found poop smeared on and around his home after returning from a trip to Las Vegas, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
The man told deputies that when he came home, he found what he believed to be dog feces on his garage door and wrought-iron house door. He said he also found feces in his mailbox, along with a letter, which he didn't touch. It turned out to be a bill.
The man told deputies that he had received an anonymous note earlier. He said he had been in an on-and-off relationship with a woman for about six months, but that he didn't believe the note was from her. He speculated that the note might have come from someone she knew who didn't like him.
The report said nothing about the contents of the note. Deputies took photos of the feces.
A BEAUTIFUL MIND
DEC. 2, 1:23 P.M.
A University of Arizona student used dubious evidence to accuse a stranger of damaging his vehicle, a UA Police Department report stated.
The student told police that his silver 1996 Camaro had been struck while parked in the Main Gate Garage, 815 E. Second St. The reporting officer noted that the car's rear bumper paint was cracked, and there was a black mark on it about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide.
The student said the damage had occurred the day before. After studying in the library for finals all day, the student said, he returned to his car and saw the damage. He said he didn't report the incident that day, because he was too tired from studying.
However, the student told police that immediately after returning to his car, he saw a silver 2004 Honda parked nearby that also had damage to its rear bumper. He told police he was certain that it was the car that had hit his vehicle.
When he met with the reporting officer at the parking lot, a silver Honda was parked near the garage entrance. The student claimed it was the same car he had seen earlier.
When asked if he written down the license-plate number, he told police that he had a "photogenic" memory.
He couldn't explain how a silver car could have made a black mark on his vehicle. Police gave the student a victims' rights form.
