THE POOL IS THE VICTIM
NORTH ROMERO ROAD
SEPT. 12, 4:05 A.M.
A trailer-park couple's "kiddie pool" was stabbed into nonfunctionality, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
A woman told deputies that she'd recently received a handwritten note—tacked to her trailer's door—from the people occupying the neighboring trailer. The note had reportedly complained about the woman's dogs, which "barked too much," and about a small plastic wading pool that the woman and her husband kept filled with water to let their dogs "cool off."
According to the note, the neighbors believed the pool had been attracting mosquitoes, the woman said. However, the woman claimed she and her husband dumped out the water and filled it with new water every other day or so.
The woman said that she had later found the pool had been stabbed eight times with a knife. She said she believed her neighbors had done the stabbing.
Deputies couldn't find concrete evidence that the pool had been attacked by the neighbors. They told the woman that if something similar happened again, she should call law enforcement the day of the incident.
The value of the kiddie pool was estimated at approximately $10.
DRUNKEN TAILLIGHT REVENGE
WEST ORIOLE CIRCLE
SEPT. 16, 1:30 P.M.
A woman allegedly had her car's taillight bashed in by an ex, a PCSD report stated.
Deputies were called to a trailer park where a woman said she lived with a male housemate. She said they'd both heard loud noises. Her housemate went outside and saw a male using a black baton to beat the glass out of one of her car's taillights.
Deputies located the man nearby; he was identified by the black baton sticking out of his back pants pocket. He was also found with an open bottle of alcohol in his pocket; later, deputies determined it had allegedly been stolen from a nearby Safeway store.
The subject didn't fully explain his actions to deputies; he merely described the woman's trailermate as "that fucker (who) took my lady."
The subject was arrested for criminal vandalism and shoplifting. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, since he allegedly had a clear glass pipe that he stated he used to smoke crack.
