Toilet Tossing

Mount Lemmon, July 13, 10:48 a.m.

A salesman with Tucson recycling and waste phoned authorities to say that someone pushed four portable toilets over a cliff at the Windy Point lookout spot, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

The salesman said the toilets were delivered to Windy Point on July 8. When a driver went to pick them up on July 13, he saw that they had been shoved over a wall and were laying about 60 feet beneath him on the side of the mountain.

Three of the toilets were valued at $600. The salesman said workers had determined at least one of these was damaged beyond repair.

A fourth handicapped toilet was estimated to be worth $1,500, but had not been located at the time of the report.


Nailed

Catalina Highway and Houghton Road, July 13, 5:58 p.m.

A 51-year-old man suspected his neighbor had placed several hundred rusty nails on his driveway in an apparent attempt to deflate his vehicle's tires, a PCSD report said.

A deputy responding to the call noted that the 3-inch nails covered the entire length of the man's 30-foot driveway.

The man told the deputy that he suspected a "belligerent" neighbor who lives across the street may have been responsible for the nails. He added that he and his neighbor had a falling out more than a year ago and that the neighbor "was constantly creating problems for the homeowners' association and for everyone in the general area," the report said.

The man added that he saw the neighbor outside just before he left for work at 5:15 a.m., and that he was "smiling in an eerie fashion," the report stated.

A deputy spoke to the 67-year-old man who lives across the street. The report said that the deputy was caught off guard when the man dispensed with pleasantries and immediately asked, "What the fuck do you want? What the fuck have I done now?"

The man "continually used belligerent language while describing his neighborhood, friends and his neighbor," the report said, and he seemed to feel "a bitterness (toward) life in general."

After speaking with the neighbor, the deputy decided there was not enough evidence to charge him with placing the nails in the driveway.


Nudity Comes Knocking

Ina and Thornydale Roads, July 12, 11:41 p.m.

According to a PCSD report, three naked children knocked on a woman's door and waited for her to answer.

The woman said the juveniles, whose sexes were not listed in the report, ran away when she answered the door.

Deputies checked the area but didn't find any naked children. The woman didn't wish to press charges, the report said.
