NOT A B&B

EAST BENSON HIGHWAY

JULY 2, 2:30 P.M.

A woman became irate and semi-violent after being denied a room at a truck stop, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department Report.

A deputy interviewed an employee of the Triple T Truck Stop, 5451 E. Benson Highway, who told him that a woman had come in and wanted to rent a room for the night.

The employee said the woman insisted upon renting a room, even when told that rooms at the Triple T were only for people with commercial driver's licenses. In addition, the woman reportedly needed a room that could accommodate an animal. When told no such rooms were available, the subject yelled "fuck" repeatedly, called the employee a bitch and threw a pen at her, the report said.

The woman then declared that refusing to her rent her a room was "discrimination." Finally, she stormed off to a red BMW and drove away.

Another employee corroborated the first employee's story.

The first employee said she wanted the woman banned from the Triple T.


SO LONG, CELL PHONE

NORTH ORACLE ROAD

JULY 8, 7:07 P.M.

A woman who left her cell phone at a restaurant tried to retrieve it by texting her own number from another phone. She got a response, including a request for a reward—but the person who had her phone never showed up to collect the reward, according to a PCSD report.

The woman told deputies that she and some family members went to Denny's after church, and that she forgot to pick up her phone when leaving the restaurant.

So she texted her own phone with the message: "If anyone has my phone, please let me know, because I have information on the phone that I need." She received a return text that included a row of dollar signs followed by "$20."

The woman and the person who had her phone arranged to meet at the intersection of Prince and Oracle roads to exchange $20 for the phone—but the person never showed up.

The woman's daughter kept calling her mom's number, and eventually, someone answered. But the person who answered said he was busy shopping at a shoe store and didn't have time to return the phone.

The woman told deputies that she would call Walmart, where she'd bought the phone, to have her number changed and to buy a new phone. But she was upset, because the "information" on the missing phone included photos of her grandchildren.
