APRIL 27, 9 A.M.
Two men got what they wanted after threatening to murder a friendly acquaintance, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
The manager of a local veterans' club said that two men—apparently club members—had come in the day before to collect money owed for working on an awning. The manager told them he wanted to see how the awning worked before paying them. The next morning, he said, the men arrived, angry and yelling, while 10 to 12 club members were sitting at tables. One subject yelled, "I'll bury you; I'll get my gun and kill you. ... I know where you live!" The manager said he was afraid for his life.
Deputies were later informed that the subject had been paid, and everything was settled. The subject's club membership, however, was reportedly withdrawn.

A man came up with lame excuses when caught with illegal items, according to a UA Police Department report.
An officer pulled over a blue Ford F-150 that had been reported as involved in a possible carjacking. A records check revealed that the man's driver's license had been suspended, and he had three warrants. He admitted the truck was not his, but insisted the owner told him he could use it.
Inside the truck, officers found a crack pipe and some clonazepam which was not prescribed to the subject. They also found a cut-open soda can with burns and residue consistent with smoking crack, as well as an unused Brillo pad.
The subject said he'd found the pills at a gas station. He had no comment on the burned soda can, but said he used the Brillo pad to scrub pots and pans, and used the pipe to "take his medicine."
MAY 18, 1:54 P.M.
A marijuana-smoker professed his love for weed, a UAPD report said.
An officer pulled over a young man for running a red light, and smelled marijuana. Asked if the drug was in the car, the driver said, "Why?" The man later alerted the officer to a baggie full of marijuana, as well as a multi-colored glass pipe and a blunt.
As the subject was being cited and released, the subject said, "When this is legalized, you won't have a reason to stop people anymore." As the officer drove away, he yelled, "I'm going to buy another bag!"
