Valencia Road and Interstate 10, Nov. 29, 3:17 a.m.
Authorities arrested a man who was acting strangely at a truck stop, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.
An employee at the TTT Truck Stop, 5451 E. Benson Highway, saw the man pound on one of the shop windows and heard him yell that he "wanted a 300-pound woman on top of him." The employee told the man to leave the property.
Another witness said that after the man was told to leave, he saw him unzipping his pants. The witness believed the man "was playing with his penis." He then saw the man zip up his pants and make "kung fu-type movements" as he walked to a nearby road. The man repeatedly stepped into traffic, the witness said.
When confronted by a deputy, the man allegedly dropped a crack pipe from his pocket. He identified himself as a 50-year-old from Texas; however, authorities were unable to confirm that identity.
Deputies arrested the man and booked him into the Pima County Adult Detention Center on misdemeanor charges of possessing drug paraphernalia, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
THE SEASON FOR STEALING
Tucson Area, Nov. 29, 9:45 P.M.; Nov. 30, 3:41 p.m.
It's the time of the year for decorations to be swiped from people's yards, according to PCSD reports.
PCSD has documented numerous instances of decoration theft in the run-up to Christmas. One woman reported on Nov. 30 that her animated electronic reindeer were stolen from her front yard, along with some Christmas lights and ornaments on a tree.
The woman estimated the value of the stolen items to be $42. She said hadn't noticed anyone suspicious in the area.
Another woman told a PCSD telephone operator on Nov. 29 that her 8-foot-tall inflatable snowman with lights on it was pilfered from her front yard. She estimated the snowman's value at $85.
The same woman noticed three, 7-foot-tall Christmas trees with lights on them were also taken from her neighbor's front yard across the street, along with some lights on their mailbox. She was unable to contact the neighbors at the time of the report to inform them of their loss.
The woman said no one noticed anything suspicious, and her dog, which is usually very sensitive to noises, never barked during the theft. She believed those responsible would have needed a getaway car to transport the stolen Christmas trees.
There was no further information at the time of the report.
