VERY HUNGRY ROBBERS
WEST RUTHRAUFF ROAD
OCT. 17, 2 P.M.
Two men stole more than $350 in beer, chocolate and beef jerky from three Circle K stores, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
An officer responded to the first call, at a Ruthrauff Road store. The employee reported that a Caucasian male with a shaved head and a brown muscle shirt ran out of the store with 10 one-pound candy bars, valued at $200. The employee saw the man come in with a Hispanic male wearing a blue football jersey bearing the number 10.
As the deputy searched for the getaway car, he received another call, from a Circle K on North Romero Road. A suspect took two 30 packs of beer and two sticks of beef jerky valued at about $100.
A third call came in from a store on West Orange Grove Road. A Hispanic man in a blue football jersey with the number 10 on it took two candy bars and two 30 packs of beer valued at $55.
In all three occurrences, the suspects left in a red sport-utility vehicle.
GRAMPA FOILS TEEN
EAST LIMBERLOST DRIVE
OCT. 15, 10 P.M.
A man wrestled his grandson to the ground after he tried to run away, according to a PCSD report.
The teenager's mother called to report that her son was yelling and attempting to run away. Earlier, she said, she'd spent two hours searching for him. When she found him, she began loading his bike in the car, and he told her to "shut the fuck up." He refused to get in the car, but walked home. Once there, he started yelling, packed a bag and tried to leave again, the report said.
The mother said that her son had been kicked out of several schools, and she was trying to enroll him in a charter school.
The teenager said that after he returned home, his grandfather scolded him for yelling at his mother and then pushed him to the floor. The teen later went outside to talk to his mom. When his grandfather came out of the house, he reportedly said, "I'm going to fucking take him out," and grabbed the teen. The teen had trouble breathing, so the grandfather released him to get his inhaler.
An officer retrieved the teen's backpack. The mother found $30 and a small plastic baggie that the officer determined contained oregano.
The teen was lectured about the consequences of selling an imitation illegal substance, and was cited for domestic violence and disorderly conduct.
