Mama drama

West Cota Road (Arivaca), March 23, 9:44 a.m.

An Arivaca grandmother is worried that some family members and their friends have been blowing marijuana and methamphetamine smoke in her 7-month-old granddaughter's face, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

Last Christmas, the grandmother saw the baby being exposed to marijuana smoke when the baby was in the same room as several people using drugs, the grandmother told police.

The grandmother has become increasingly worried, because other Arivaca residents have approached her and said that they have recently seen people blowing smoke into the baby's face.

PCSD deputies contacted Child Protective Services, who will investigate the incident.

Community Disservice

South Bonney Avenue and East Alvord Road, March 22, 3 p.m.

According to a PCSD report, two teens assaulted a mentally disabled Tucson boy on his way home from school.

When the boy got off the school bus, the two teens approached him, grabbed his wrists and stole a key chain with keys that were hanging from his belt loop.

The boy said he didn't know who the boys were, but believes they were about 16. Deputies could not find any other witnesses.

Alumni woes

University Area, March 28, 12 p.m.

With e-mail addresses allegedly stolen from a university alumni listserv, a Tucson man sent out harassing e-mails that inquired about Asian prostitutes, people's ethnicities and a murdered University of Southern California psychologist, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

About 15 alumni complained to the alumni office after they received the e-mail. An employee from the alumni office told police the man who sent the e-mail identified himself and may have stolen the addresses from an alumni listserv.

The suspect also gave a general delivery address and two phone numbers.

Some of the recipients said they felt threatened by the e-mails, which included inquiries about alumnus' ethnicities and whether they "know any Asian provocateurs." The suspect also wrote about a USC psychologist who had "been exterminated."

Police told the UA employee to tell alumni to contact their local police department if they want to prosecute the man.

The UA employee said he is planning on calling the suspect; police made copies of the e-mails and placed them into evidence.
