Keep Your Pants On

North Kolb Road, Oct. 27, 4:45 p.m.

A self-proclaimed rape victim who was intoxicated found it acceptable to drive under the influence and later undress in a strange man's house, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

After following leads regarding a possible drunk driver, a sheriff's deputy found that the driver in question, a petite Hispanic woman in a pink shirt and gray shorts, had parked her vehicle at an apartment complex and was then walking her two dogs down the sidewalk. When deputies made contact with the woman, it was obvious that she was extremely intoxicated and upset. She stated that she had been raped earlier that day and had reported the incident to police; investigation by one officer revealed that her report had been false. Since the woman was, however, in questionable physical condition, medical personnel were called to assess her. She was cleared of medical problems and taken back to her house, where she promised to remain for the rest of the day.

About three hours later, the reporting officer responded to a disturbance in which a woman had entered the home of a strange man, uninvited and intoxicated. The resident said she had claimed to have been raped and asked to be given alcohol. Then she began to remove her clothing. The woman, identified by the reporting deputy as the same woman he was already acquainted with, was still intoxicated when he arrived on the scene. Her pants were lying on the floor, and a beer sat beside her.

The woman was arrested for disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

Wolf in Coeds' Clothing

UA Area Nov. 3, 3:27 p.m.

Three UA dorm residents who had clothes and accessories stolen from their rooms have repeatedly seen the items worn by a certain female peer, said a University of Arizona Police Department report.

The victims had been noticing clothing and jewelry disappearing from their closets regularly since at least Labor Day weekend. One victim said that her best items would go missing and then be returned anonymously in odd places. She had no idea who could be doing this until she saw a fellow female dorm resident walk off the elevator in a pair of her sandals.

Confronted by all three victims separately, the thief admitted her crimes and returned some of the items she'd taken, many of which were damaged. She failed to reimburse the victims for the damage to the returned items and for the value of the still-missing items.

When UA police interviewed her about the theft, she reportedly cried, "I'm so sorry! ... I didn't mean to. I come from a family of seven brothers and sisters, and we share everything."

The perpetrator was arrested for two counts of theft and two of criminal damage. She has made plans to get her own apartment.
