FORGOT TO STEAL THE TOOTHPASTE
SOUTH CARDINAL AVENUE
JUNE 27, 7:49 P.M.
Three inebriated individuals were caught in an elaborate scheme to shoplift personal-hygiene items, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
Employees at a Tucson Walgreens reported that a 5-foot-3-inch man had repeatedly entered the store, stolen items such as shampoo, and left—only to return in a different T-shirt to steal more items.
After exiting the store, the male had reportedly been going to a bus stop and giving the stolen goods to a female, who provided him with a different T-shirt. Another female accomplice, panhandling outside the Walgreens, was apparently the lookout.
When apprehended, the male admitted he stole four shampoo bottles. Although witnesses reported that the bus-stop female possessed many stolen items, the only thing deputies found on her was a brand-new toothbrush.
All three subjects showed signs of intoxication, including breath reeking of alcohol.
The male and the panhandling female were arrested; the other female was released, since all the stolen items had disappeared.
One witness said the shampoo had been sold to someone nearby for $10.

A man was driven to move out of his apartment by his neighbor's scary use of a gun, a PCSD report stated.
The apartment complex's manager contacted law enforcement after learning that a man renting a ground-floor unit was moving out, because his upstairs neighbor had shot a bullet through the ceiling and into his television.
The reporting deputy found a hole in the first-floor dweller's ceiling and in the top of his television. No bullet was found.
The victim said he had not reported the incident, because his upstairs neighbor knew where he lived.

A man's girlfriend was apparently so angry at him that she used her backside to dent his car, a PCSD report stated.
The reportee said his girlfriend had come to his residence to get some belongings, and started "ranting and raving" and demanding that he return a ring she had given him. He said he asked her to leave. Watching her through the window, he saw her smash a door of his Hyundai.
The reporting deputy observed a large dent in the car's door. When he asked the victim what his girlfriend had smashed the car with, he said, "Her ass."
Deputies could not locate the girlfriend.
