Flowers Only

East Orange Grove and North Oracle roads, Oct. 18, 5:04 p.m.

A man has been regularly making obscene phone calls to a florist, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The semi-regular calls have been ongoing since May, a female employee, who spoke to the man most recently, told authorities.

"You know who this is," the employee said the caller told her upon answering the phone.

When she insisted that she didn't, the man allegedly informed her that he had been the one "to pop her cherry." He then asked her if she wanted to have sex, according to the report.

The employee said she wasn't fearful, only concerned that the man might come into the store one day. She provided a deputy with the caller's phone number, which she was able to trace using *69. A search on the number produced no results.

A deputy advised her to write down some of the caller's statements, should he phone again, so that they would be easy to remember for evidence purposes.


Poetic Justice

UA Area, Nov. 1, 9:12 a.m.

According to a University of Arizona Police Department report, someone tried using an explosive device on a door to gain access to the UA's Poetry Center.

The device appeared to have been planted in the handle, causing the metal door to separate slightly from the jamb. Police believe fingerprints on the door may have meant someone tried to force it open after the explosion.

It was later determined that the device was most likely a firecracker of some sort.

An employee said she didn't know of anyone who had a grudge against the Poetry Center. There were no witnesses or suspects at the time of the report.


Drafty Attire

West Orange Grove Road and North La Cholla Boulevard, Oct. 21, 7:32 p.m.

Hospital employees couldn't find the clothes of a woman who had been treated, so she was discharged wearing only a hospital gown, a PCSD report said.

A male friend of the woman told a PCSD operator that she had been rushed to Northwest Hospital, 6200 N. La Cholla Blvd., in an ambulance on Oct. 18.

When he went to pick her up three days later, no one knew where her clothes, a pearl ring or the diamond wedding ring she had been wearing upon admittance were, the friend alleged.

The woman confirmed that the items were missing and was provided with a case number for documentation.
