According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report, somebody impersonating a district manager convinced a Circle K clerk to take $459 from the register and deliver it to an angry customer who was waiting at home.
The Circle K clerk told deputies that a man called the store and identified himself by name as the district manager. The pseudo-district manager told the clerk that there was an angry customer who agreed to stop making threats against the corporation if Circle K paid him off.
Following the pseudo-district manager's directions, the clerk took the money from the register and a cellular phone, and drove it to a house on the 1100 block of West Pasadita Street, where the angry customer was supposed to be waiting.
The pseudo-district manager called the clerk and said that there had been a change in plans. Instead of delivering the cash and phone, the clerk was told to meet the customer's son at a different location. But the clerk had already arrived at the first location on Pasadita and handed the money to somebody claiming to be the son of the angry customer.

According to a University of Arizona Police Department report, officers arrested an underage Illinois man for having beer in his pocket, even though the man told officers that the police department in Chicago would let him go.
Officers on bicycles allegedly saw Tyler Brearley, 19, walking on campus with a beer can in his back pocket. When officers asked his name, Brearley said, "I don't know," the report stated.
Police learned his name and ran a background check on Brearley. They learned he has argued with police in the past.
Officers took the beer and dumped it out.
While speaking with Brearley, officers received a priority call on their radio. They cited and released Brearley on suspicion of being a minor in possession of alcohol before riding away.
According to the report, Brearley yelled, "Yeah, get on your bikes and ride away."
After attending to the priority call, officers returned to the scene, but Brearley was gone.
