Family Break-in

Sunrise Drive and Swan Road, Feb. 6, 3:31 p.m.

A man said his 15-year-old son broke into his apartment, messed things up a bit and painted an anarchy sign on a wall using shaving cream, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The man said his son had an apartment key that his son had stolen from him earlier that day. He walked a deputy through his home and showed him where various items were out of place or knocked over.

The man alleged that his son threw a book from the 19th century on the ground, and he showed the deputy the anarchy sign in his bathroom. Authorities noted two anarchy signs on a Volvo in the apartment complex parking lot.

A deputy later arrested the son after he reportedly tried to break into the apartment again while his father was inside. The father told authorities that he used a wooden board to barricade the front door and a dresser to prevent access through the back.

Deputies transported the son to the Pima County Juvenile Detention Center.

Disturbing The Peace

Magee and Thornydale Roads, Feb. 6, 1:45 a.m.

A woman complained to authorities three times that her neighbor was playing a loud game of horseshoes late at night, a PCSD report stated.

Deputies noted in each instance that the sound of voices coming from the neighbor's backyard during a party was "not unreasonable" and that they could occasionally hear the clink of metal.

However, it was the fourth time authorities had been called in two days. Each time, deputies reportedly told the neighbor to take his gathering inside or into the front yard. The report said the neighbor had been "fully understanding" of the situation when authorities talked to him.

The neighbor admitted he had been in the backyard to smoke a cigarette with friends. Due to the number of responses and the late hour, a deputy cited the man for disturbing the peace.

Easy Free Parking

UA Area, Feb. 21, 8:53 p.m.

A man allegedly lifted a traffic-control arm at a parking garage to avoid paying, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

An officer observed a man in a 1990 Nissan Maxima reach out of his vehicle to raise the automated parking arm. He then drove out of the garage at 880 E. Fourth St.

When stopped by the officer, the driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Timothy R. Quinn, allegedly apologized and promised to go and pay. He did so and was cited for theft of services by the officer, the report said.

    Some guys in an SUV got away with reeking of weed—and even having a small amount of it in the car—maybe because they didn’t fail to amuse the cops who pulled them over (at least a little), according to an Oro Valley Police Department report.
