EVER HEAR OF O.J. SIMPSON?
Six Marana teenagers made a videotape of themselves stealing beer from a Chevron station. The tape included audio of the boys planning the heist.
"This is the second time in my career that I've had somebody tape the crime they had committed," said detective Keith Klein. "And I don't know how a jury could dispute the evidence."
HE ALSO STOPPED TO FLOSS, TAKE A LEAK AND BUY A NEW PAIR OF RUNNING SHOES
Tucsonan Arnold Everett Sears, 28, held on suspicion of a Phoenix bank robbery, was arrested when he allegedly interrupted his getaway to stop at a filling station near the bank to gas up.
NOBODY GETS AROUND TUCSON LIKE THE CITIZEN
John W. Jennings, 51, the Tucson Citizen's family columnist, was arrested for allegedly soliciting a 17-year-old prostitute. He supposedly wanted to have sex with the girl, while an adult female watched. Both would be paid $140.
Federal prosecutors alleged that Emilio G. "Lee" Dutari, an accountant for the Tohono O'odham Nation, misused $612,000 in tribal funds so he and his friends could open a gay dude ranch in Texas.
WHAT A TORT
David Earl Dempsey sued the City of Tucson, Pima County and the State of Arizona for injuries suffered when he attempted to hang himself in the Pima County Jail. Dempsey had been booked on suspicion of mugging a 76-year-old woman.
Edward Tempton, 21, was arrested after robbing a Tucson bank, then taking a cab back to his apartment complex and tipping the driver $50.
As police were trying to coax Tempton out of his apartment, the suspect's roommate, 31-year-old Scott Moll, approached officers and asked when he would be able to get back into his apartment.
Police recognized Moll and arrested him as a suspect in two grocery store robberies, also involving getaway cabs.
LIKE THE AD SAYS, THESE ARE THE MOMENTS OF YOUR LIFE
Five Chandler teenagers took Polaroids of themselves burglarizing vehicles, then left seven of the photos at the scene. "I think they just forgot them," said Officer Steven Lamy. "They denied it at first. Then when I showed them the pictures, they were cold busted."
REBELS WITHOUT A CLUE
Wearing cloth masks on their faces, two 16-year-old Chandler boys beat a pizza deliveryman with wooden dowels, then took the food but didn't take his money. Police didn't have to look far to find the boys--they were arrested at the home from which the pizza was ordered.
