Incident & Reports

A male subject succeeded in shoplifting two 30 packs of beer in the early-morning hours of Sept. 9 from the Circle K store at 1541 N. Arizona Blvd. but encountered some difficulty for his thievery effort. A police officer responded to the store at 1:49 a.m. and was told a subject had entered the walk-in beer section and left the store with the bundles of Budweiser beer valued $63.90. The man tried to get into the back seat of a car, but that is when his troubles began, according to the store manager who talked with police. Before the subject was settled, the driver started to pull away and the subject fell out and one of his legs was run over. The mishap also caused one of the beer 30 packs to scatter in the parking lot and a second passenger collecting them, according to an officer’s account after reviewing security footage from the store’s video recording. The alleged shoplifter also is seen on the west side of the store waving his arms before the car driver picks him up and drives away.

Police responded to reports of gunshots at 3:33 a.m. Sept. 6 at 111 N. Carter Ranch Road where they believe a party had been in progress. Police found bullet holes in a nearby house and in a car at the same house. Police used forced entry at the house where the party occurred an interviewed about 10 people, all of whom were uncooperative, according to a police report. A Dodge Ram truck registered out of Gila Bend was improperly parked on the street and towed from the scene. None of the individuals questioned claimed ownership of the truck.
