I'll Buy You Anything ...

Valencia and Mission Roads, March 25, 8 p.m.

Women in a convenience store accused a man who was buying porn of making them feel uncomfortable, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

A deputy responding to the Circle K at 4605 W. Valencia Road found 38-year-old Orlando Figueroa in a yellow truck outside the store. The deputy noted that Figueroa smelled of alcohol and had a pornographic magazine lying on the seat next to him.

According to the report, two open cans of beer were sitting in the truck's center console. The deputy arrested Figueroa and then went inside to talk to a female Circle K employee.

She said Figueroa "kept talking to her and asking her what kind of adult magazines to buy," adding that he told her he was looking for magazines "with males and females in them." The employee said Figueroa's questioning made her feel "uncomfortable."

Authorities spoke to a second female witness, who said Figueroa "had told her that he would be willing to buy her anything she wanted or give her money," without indicating what the money was intended to get him. The woman said she felt Figueroa was making unwanted advances toward her.

The Circle K employee told authorities that she had asked Figueroa to leave; he did so, but then came back, she said. The Circle K employees wanted to press charges for criminal trespassing, but it wasn't clear from the report whether Figueroa was cited for that.

The report said he was cited for having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle. Authorities phoned his wife to pick him up.

Purloined Pets

Unincorporated Pima County, March 24, 4:59 p.m.

A woman said a neighbor who had been entrusted with the care of her animals apparently gave them away, a PCSD report stated.

The woman said her neighbor had agreed to feed, groom and ensure the welfare of her dogs and horse while she was in the hospital taking care of her ailing husband.

She said she spoke to the neighbor about once a week to discuss how the animals were faring.

During a March 17 phone call, her neighbor allegedly volunteered, "By the way, there are no animals anymore." The woman said she asked what that meant, and the neighbor reportedly told her he was "perturbed" after not hearing from her for three to five days, so he had the animals "picked up."

The neighbor refused to disclose where the animals had gone, the woman said. He then hung up after saying he figured that the woman had things to do, she added.

The woman had searched for the animals with various organizations and shelters after returning home, to no avail. A deputy advised her to report any developments.
