Caveat Emptor

Wetmore and Oracle Roads, March 28, 1:41 p.m.

A man found an apparent methamphetamine lab among the contents of a storage unit he bought at an estate auction, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

The man said he paid $105 for the unit's contents, adding that he wasn't allowed to see what he was purchasing before the deal was made.

According to the report, he found a cardboard box containing chemicals that appeared to be used for making meth. He said he recognized the chemicals, which included acetone, from TV ads.

A deputy also noted a white bucket with a powdery substance inside that resembled crystal meth.

Authorities called the proper experts to examine the chemicals and see exactly what kind of drugs, if any, were being manufactured. They then disposed of the hazardous materials.


Random Outburst

Orange Grove Road and La Cholla Boulevard, March 26, 8:42 a.m.

A patient at an oncology office freaked out at the staff, a PCSD report said.

According to an employee at the office, the female patient didn't have an appointment scheduled. She showed the employee an envelope when she walked into the waiting room, but wouldn't say what was inside the envelope.

The employee then said that the woman threatened to get everyone fired and started yelling and screaming, using "vulgar language" to illustrate her points. She reportedly slapped her hand down on a counter and got in the employee's face.

A dozen other patients were reportedly in the waiting room, and one of them said the woman's actions were alarming.

The office only wanted to document the incident in case the woman returned; they declined to pursue disorderly conduct charges.


Men Behaving Badly

UA Area, April 13, 11:40 a.m.

A woman walking past a university building said a groundskeeper was up to no good, according to a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The woman told authorities she was walking down the street when she noticed a trio of men standing near a UA vehicle.

One of the men reportedly called out, "Hey baby, you should take off your shirt!"

The woman said she would not be able to identify the men if she saw them again. The grounds superintendent said there were some temporary-worker crews in the area, but couldn't specify who the alleged letch was.

There was no further information at the time of the report.
