Police Dispatch

Father and Son

University Area, Sept. 21, 4:32 p.m.

Police arrested a Tucson father and his adult son after officers saw the son and another man drinking beer inside the father's truck, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

Police pulled over Matthew Cox Jr., 61, near North Campbell Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard when they saw a passenger in the cab of the truck drink from a can of beer and saw Cox's son drink beer while sitting in the bed of the truck, the report stated.

The passenger, B.S. Grady, 60, of a general delivery address, and the driver's son, Matthew Cox III, 24, admitted to drinking alcohol in the car and gave police the opened beer cans from which they were drinking.

Police arrested and released Grady and Cox III on suspicion of drinking alcohol inside a motor vehicle, the report stated.

The father denied drinking alcohol, but police noticed he was swaying, had red and watery eyes and slurred speech, the report stated.

When officers gave Matthew Cox Jr. a Breathalyzer test, they learned he had a blood alcohol content of .245--more than three times the legal limit of .08.

Cox was arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired to the slightest degree, driving under the influence of alcohol with a BAC of more than .08 and extreme DUI, the report stated.

Cox's daughter picked him up from the police station.

Money Woes

West Orange Grove Road and North Oracle Road, Sept. 9, 1:39 p.m.

According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report, somebody took $425.95 from a Tucson hotel's safe.

The bookkeeper at the Flamingo Inn Suites, 401 W. Lavery Lane, noticed the money was missing when she went to the back of the hotel office to check on the safe. She told deputies the money was supposedly put in an envelope before being dropped off by an employee after his shift on Aug. 31.

The employee who handled the envelope denied stealing any money and said he slid the envelope and its contents into the safe's drop slot after his shift.

Deputies found no signs of forced entry into the safe.

Only the bookkeeper and the hotel owner know the safe's combination, the report stated.

The Watcher

North Sabino Canyon Road and East Snyder Road, Sept. 8, 8:19 p.m.

A Tucson woman was watching television with her dog when she looked out her apartment window and saw a man masturbating, a PCSD report stated.

She heard a knock at the window, and when she peered out, she saw the man expose and stroke himself. She called the man disgusting and told him to leave, the report stated.

Police searched the area but couldn't find the suspect, a 30-year-old man with brown hair and a white shirt.
