SENSE AND INSTABILITY
NORTH RENO AVENUE
SEPT. 26, 5:03 A.M.
A woman ranted about senses while possibly exaggerating a state of delusion, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.
The reportee told deputies that her daughter arrived at her trailer—despite being told she wasn't welcome there—and started "going crazy," banging on the walls and ranting incoherently. The mother didn't think her daughter had ingested drugs or alcohol, but couldn't be sure.
One deputy heard the subject laughing hysterically inside the trailer and making statements about calling in a "code 187" on someone who "needed to leave." The deputy thought he heard her stomping around and yelling, "Can you hear me marching?!"
Deputies found her wrapped in a blanket, pounding on the walls and making statements that she could "see the light" and "smell" the deputies.
While deputies waited for paramedics, the subject kept talking about odd things, like: She would fly to Texas, but not at night, since she wouldn't be able to see; she wanted her own world; and deputies needed to hurry up and get to El Paso. She also mentioned that her cousin was a sniper, and "she needed him at that moment."
At one point, she started to scream while accusing a deputy of grabbing her "titty." She was assured that the deputy was merely searching for contraband.
One deputy noted that the woman appeared to be more aware of her surroundings than she let on, and suggested that she was "partially faking" mental instability.
The woman was arrested.
NORTH ORACLE ROAD
SEPT. 27, 11:05 A.M.
A man apparently tried to steal dirty syringes, a PCSD report stated.
Deputies were dispatched to the Whole Foods store at 7133 N. Oracle Road, where an employee told them that a male with a goatee entered the store, moaning, and went to the bathroom. Staff members knocked on the door to check on him, at which point he exited the bathroom, still moaning and sounding incoherent. He was staggering, twitching and making "weird body movements," according to an employee.
While in the bathroom, the man had evidently broken into a locked metal case containing dirty syringes that were used by a diabetic employee. It was unknown whether the man had taken any of the dirty needles; the box was still about two-thirds full.
A little more than an hour later, the man was spotted wandering around the lobby of the Quality Inn and Suites, 7411 N. Oracle Road. He reportedly looked "out of it" and had blood pouring from his arm.
The subject was apprehended and taken to the hospital.
