DIBS FIEND

UNIVERSITY AREA

NOV. 11, 1:45 A.M.

An intoxicated woman ate her way through three containers of ice cream without paying for them, according to a University of Arizona Police Department report.

A UA officer was speaking with the Highland Market manager in the early morning hours when another employee alerted him that a woman was in the store eating food for which she hadn't paid.

The officer found the woman eating a container of Dibs in the back of the store. She admitted that she hadn't paid for the ice cream, but said it was the only item she had eaten.

As she spoke, the officer noticed she was swaying and speaking with a heavy slur. He escorted the woman to the register to pay for the food.

Meanwhile, the employee found another empty Dibs package. After the woman paid for both packages, the officer conducted a sobriety test, and she admitted drinking three shots of vodka at a fraternity function.

While they were talking, the store employee found yet another empty Dibs container—and security footage that showed the woman eating from it.

The officer arrested the woman on suspicion of being a minor in possession of alcohol—and ensured that she paid for the third package of Dibs.


ON BLOCKS

UNIVERSITY AREA

NOV. 11, 9:30 P.M.

Someone stole the wheels from an Infiniti sedan in a UA parking garage after propping up the vehicle with concrete blocks, a UAPD report said.

The owner of the silver sedan, a visitor from Phoenix, left the car in the garage—with all wheels present—at 3:15 p.m. to go out with friends.

An unknown caller reported the theft, and officers found the car on the second floor of the garage, minus the four wheels. An officer checked the registration to find a phone number for the owner. When the owner returned the call, he said was unaware the wheels had been stolen.

The officer asked whether the missing wheels could have been the result of a prank by friends, or perhaps a repossession or an attempt at insurance fraud. The man assured the officer that he owned the 22-inch aftermarket wheels outright, and said that he had few friends in the area.

The man said that he "absolutely" wanted to participate in the judicial process, and the officer gave him the case number.

At the scene, officers took photographs; dusted for fingerprints; and collected a cigarette butt and an empty cigarette box near one of the wheel wells.

The case was inactive due to a lack of leads.
