Caught In The Act

Valencia and Mission Roads, July 29, 3:44 a.m.

Authorities busted some teens who were allegedly smoking marijuana in a garage with the door wide open, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

An anonymous call came through that a group of kids were smoking in the garage. A deputy spotted the garage with the door open and reportedly pulled into the driveway, shining a light into the interior and verbally announcing his presence.

Three male and two female teens immediately turned around and put their hands in the air, the report stated.

One teen reportedly told the deputy that this was his aunt's house, and they had been smoking "the dope." The deputy found a makeshift bong in the middle of the garage and some marijuana in a pink purse that belonged to one of the girls. No one admitted bringing the marijuana that was in the bong.

Misdemeanor charges against members of the alleged pot-smoking group included possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. They were all cited and released to either their parents or, in the case of the two girls, an uncle who was responsible for looking after them while their parents were away.

Offensive All Over The Place

Ajo Way and Palo Verde Road, July 28, 9:44 a.m.

A man who had been sent home from work early for being drunk attempted to pick fights as he wandered around near his place of employment, a PCSD report said.

The first call to authorities came in from an auto shop. The reportee said an intoxicated man had walked into the business and started yelling at people. By the time a deputy got there, the man had departed.

However, the reportee could see the man at a nearby intersection and pointed him out to the deputy. The man was standing at a bus stop with a number of people who asked the deputy to keep the man away from them. They said the man, who they seemed to know as "Julio," had been sent home for showing up at work intoxicated.

Dispatch reported that two other calls came through while the deputy was conversing with the people at the bus stop. In one call, someone reported that a drunken man, who was eventually identified in the report as Julio R. Guzman, had been causing problems at a convenience store; the other came from another auto shop. The report didn't give Guzman's age.

The manager at the convenience store said he had been "disturbed by the subject's vulgarity," according to report. Deputies ran a warrant check on Guzman, which came back negative.

A deputy arrested Guzman for disorderly conduct and transported him to Pima County Adult Detention Center.

    When hipsters do something that's slightly outside the law yet an innovation over the old guard, they get a Series-C round of funding, Instagram influencers, and fawning media coverage. When Mexicans do it? We get code enforcement.
