While You Were Gone
Valencia and Mission Roads, June 17, 1:12 a.m.
A man reported a rowdy house party after some attendees of that party urinated in his yard, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.
The reportee said that two young men walked over to his home and started urinating; one walked away while the other kept peeing after the reportee ordered them to stop.
The man also saw a group of young women drinking in his driveway before they got into a car. The ladies' vehicle tapped bumpers with another before they sped off.
A man and woman who met with deputies said the house belonged to a relative who was away. Deputies cited both for disorderly conduct.
Teaching a Lesson?
Unincorporated Pima County, June 15, 10:06 a.m.
A mother cut up her teenage son's drum set with a knife in an attempt to force him to turn his life around, a PCSD report said.
The 16-year-old son was the one who called authorities. He said his mother flipped out after she discovered he had cheated on his girlfriend--with whom he has a baby boy--because his mom was afraid she wouldn't get to see her grandson anymore.
The son accused his mother of hitting him in the face several times and then taking a knife to his drums. According to the deputy, there were no visible marks on the teen's face.
The mother said her son has been involved with gangs and drugs for the past three years; she tried to talk to him about his problems, she said, prompting him to call her a "cunt."
Things reportedly escalated after that word was uttered, and she admitted belting him in the face three times and taking the knife to his drums. She said she wanted him to know what it felt like to have something of his broken.
A deputy didn't cite the mother, but did report the incident to Child Protective Services. The mother said she was going to replace her son's drum set in the near future.
All Pain, No Gain
Irvington Road and Palo Verde Road, June 15, 8:42 a.m.
It appeared that someone who broke into a recreational-vehicle sales lot lost a lot of blood in the process, a PCSD report said.
Employees at La Mesa RV, 3255 E. Irvington Road, noticed a large pool of blood inside an RV they were detailing. Further inspection showed a portion of the razor-wire fence nearby had been cut.
It appeared someone tried to break into another nearby RV, in an attempt to steal a satellite TV system.
Whoever was responsible apparently did not succeed in carting off anything.
