A's for Everyone

West Overton and North Thornydale Roads, March 10, 3:22 p.m.

A student at a local high school distracted a teacher with a story about a friend who was drinking and doing drugs, while classmates changed their grades on the teacher's computer, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The male student at Mountain View High School, 3901 W. Linda Vista Blvd., reportedly asked the teacher to step outside the classroom to talk about his concerns. Four other boys then used the computer to change the grades for themselves and the decoy, the report alleged.

The teacher discovered the changes the following day. She was unable to speak to the officer who made the report due to a dental appointment.

One of the boys wrote a letter to authorities admitting to accessing the grades on the computer. The investigation was ongoing at the time of the report.


Anything for Money

East River and North Sabino Canyon Roads, March 11, 1:39 a.m.

According to a PCSD report, a woman said her drug-addicted son locked her in a bathroom so he could take her credit card with a $50,000 limit on it.

The 77-year-old woman said her son, 41, tried to take a television set when she let him in her house. He reportedly lost his grip, however, and the TV crashed through a glass table.

When the woman asked her son to help clean up the mess, he allegedly said he would do so if she gave him money first.

The woman also told deputies that her son had removed the receivers from the three land-based telephones in her home. She said she went to a bathroom to get away from her son, who locked her inside. The woman used a cellular phone she had in her pocket to call authorities.

A deputy helped the woman clean up her glass table. Authorities were attempting to locate the son on charges of domestic violence, criminal damage and disorderly conduct at the time of the report.


Inviting Trouble

UA Area, March 22, 9:21 a.m.

A man who gave the middle finger to a passing police cruiser was cited for possessing fake identification, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The officer said the man started crossing the street, even though traffic-control signals directed him not to do so. The man thought better of crossing and stepped back to the curb, the report said. He then allegedly flipped off the patrol car as it passed.

The officer stopped his car up the road and made contact with the man, who, when asked to provide identification, allegedly took out a phony California driver license, looked at it briefly and put it back in his wallet. He then produced a valid one, the report said.

The officer confiscated the fake identification and cited the man for possession of a fictitious license.
