Lipstick Vandal?

Foothills Area Feb. 9, 3:19 p.m.

A woman who'd been evicted from an apartment complex was accused of using lipstick—not once, but three times—to mark up the car of someone else in the complex she apparently had beef with, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies were called to the apartments by the victim and his wife, who showed them the husband's lipstick-besmirched vehicle. The reportees said the suspect was a young woman who'd recently been evicted from that apartment complex but still came by periodically to visit her parents. They said she'd actually admitted to vandalizing the husband's car in a previous incident (though apparently not with lipstick).

The suspect happened to be at the complex that day, so deputies were able to interview her, at which point she adamantly denied the vandalism, saying she didn't even own lipstick—and indeed, she wasn't wearing a speck of makeup on her face, nor did deputies find any lipstick in her car or purses, which she volunteered to let them search. The woman therefore wasn't arrested, but she was told it would be illegal for her to ever return to the apartment complex, since she'd already been trespassed from the property when she was evicted.
