The following was taken from the records at the Maricopa Police Department.
On Aug. 12, Maricopa officers were investigating a shoplifting that occurred at Circle K. Police then contacted Jim Sustiata Jr. through an open door at his residence in regards to two other individuals in the home who were suspected of shoplifting. Officers asked Sustiata if he was the owner of the vehicle parked outside, which allegedly had a glass pipe in plain view in the center console. A vehicle search also turned up a handgun, which Sustiata is not permitted to own as a prohibited possessor. Sustiata was arrested for an outstanding warrant, as well as weapons misconduct and drug paraphernalia.
On Aug. 6, a citizen reported two people using drugs in a vehicle on John Wayne Parkway. When officers made contact, they reportedly found Blake Lawrence and another individual in the vehicle with drug paraphernalia in plain view of the officer. A search of Lawrence allegedly turned up oxycodone and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested for possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Aug. 5, an officer sitting in the parking lot of Circle K recognized Curtis Fuchs from previous interactions sitting at a picnic table. He confirmed his identity, and was arrested on two different warrants.
On July 31, Maricopa police responded to a call of a domestic dispute in a home on Wilford Avenue. The caller told police Christopher Hill had shown up at the residence with drugs and a firearm and, when he was told to leave, Hill allegedly broke the lock on the front door. Officers on scene asked Hill to leave, and arranged for a cab to pick him up. However, several hours later he allegedly returned and entered the home. The same reporting party called police, and this time Hill was arrested for disorderly conduct, criminal damage and possession of drug paraphernalia.
