Police Dispatch



MAY 7, 12:28 P.M.

A Green Valley man acknowledged climbing on his roof at night to catch people he said were trying to steal his swamp cooler, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

He also told deputies that his neighbors were smoking methamphetamine.

Deputies were responding to a call from one of the man's neighbors, who said that car and house windows in the neighborhood had been shot up with a BB gun, and that the roof-climbing man was suspected, because he had been "showing very odd signs recently," including climbing his roof at night, yelling at nonexistent people, and walking around a nearby golf course late at night.

When deputies went to the subject's house—against the objections of the fearful neighbor—the subject started ranting that seven or eight people had been trying to steal his swamp cooler, and that all of his neighbors were smoking meth, the report said.

The subject said he regularly climbed on his roof at night, but that so far, he hadn't been able to catch the cooler thieves.

When asked why he thought someone would try to steal his swamp cooler, the subject hypothesized that it was in retaliation for him turning someone in for doing something illegal. He didn't specify what that might be.

No arrest was made.



MAY 10, 4:16 P.M.

A couple at first contested a $17,000 bill from a sex website, but stopped objecting after their son admitted to using the site, a PCSD report stated.

Deputies met with the father, who said he had received multiple unexpected charges for large amounts of money from a website called sexier.com.

When deputies contacted representatives of the website, they found that there was a legitimate account number accumulating fees. It turned out that the account was associated with the email address of the father's adult son.

The son admitted to his father that he had made an "initial purchase" from the site, but denied spending anything close to the amount charged—a whopping $17,000. At the time of the report, nobody could explain why that much money had been drawn out of the account.

The dad swore that his son's Yahoo! account had been compromised, but was unable to prove it.

The couple almost immediately withdrew their complaint. Nobody was charged with any criminal activity.
