Problem Patient

West Orange Grove and North La Cholla, May 30, 7:20 a.m.

Several witnesses at a local hospital said a man wearing an emergency-room robe and a colostomy bag threw a small sack of marijuana at a patient and stole food from the cafeteria, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

Witnesses said 21-year-old Casey Krizan had been loitering around Northwest Hospital, 5200 N. La Cholla Blvd., after he had been discharged. Hospital security told authorities that they informed Krizan that he must leave the property.

One patient accused Krizan of throwing a baggie of marijuana in her direction, the report said. The patient further alleged that Krizan claimed he had an additional pound of marijuana in a backpack he was carrying. Deputies searched the backpack, but found nothing.

Authorities also spoke to a cafeteria worker who accused Krizan of not paying for some hot cereal, juice and milk he had taken.

A deputy cited Krizan for criminal trespassing and shoplifting. Krizan denied all charges.

Close Call

Route 86 and Sierrita Mountain Road, June 1, 8:30 p.m.

According to a PCSD report, a man said the driver of a Ford Bronco twice tried to hit his vehicle while he was parked on the side of the road.

The man told a PCSD telephone operator that he had pulled off the road in front of his home when the Bronco came from the opposite direction and attempted to hit his vehicle.

The man said that the Bronco's driver then turned around and tried to side-swipe his car.

According to the man, the Bronco didn't actually hit his vehicle. He couldn't provide a license-plate number or details about the other driver.

The phone operator noted that during the call, there was a woman in the background "yelling and screaming profanities regarding the Pima County Sheriff's Department." According to the operator, the woman said, "Tell them we're fucking calling a lawyer because they (PCSD) do not do anything."

Pilfered Pictures

UA Area, June 12, 1:36 p.m.

Someone stole two large-format photographs of fraternity members, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

The 3-foot-by-3-foot photographs, valued at $1,200 each, were of Delta Tau Delta frat members from 1999 and 2000.

The man who reported the theft said the photos were still there when he locked the fraternity-house doors before going to bed at around 2 a.m. At 9 a.m., the man said, he heard loud noises. When he awoke two hours later, he saw that the photographs were missing, and the front and back doors were unlocked.

Police searched outside the house, but didn't find any evidence. There were no other items missing from the house.
