Pima County

On Sunday, March 3, at about 2:19 a.m., Pima County Sheriff deputies responded to a report of a burglary in progress on the 2200 block of West Catalina View Dr. The caller told police he heard a big bang, thinking someone was trying to get into the house. While deputies began searching the outside of the home, they found what appeared to be human feces near the front door of the house and broken glass near the back door to the house. Deputies looked in the back door and found a man sitting in a chair in the kitchen area with his head on the table. The man did not know where he was or what had happened earlier in the night. He originally thought he was at his house, then thought he was at a friend’s house. While searching him, police found he had marijuana and a pipe. He was arrested for criminal damage, criminal trespassing, and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. 


On Friday, March 1, at 3:54 p.m., Pima County Sheriff deputies responded to a report of a strong arm robbery at the Walmart at 7635 N. La Cholla Blvd. The man was seen taking a bottle of KY His and Hers liquids from the box, and then tried to leave the store without paying for them. As employees tried to stop the man, he said a vulgar comment and began to run. While chasing the man, he tried to punch the employee. The man then reached towards his waistband giving the impression he had a gun, then ran across the street and was later found in Albertson’s. He was arrested for shoplifting and attempted assault.
