    Police Beat: Pima County Sheriff’s Department

    On Thursday, April 9 around 9 p.m., Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to reports of a burglary. The woman’s neighbor saw the screen off of her front window and told her about it. She noticed that her sex toy was missing and thought that it was possibly kids or a stalker. When officers got to the home they saw a bent and broken screen near the front door. Her neighbor called her at work to tell her about the screen so she called her ex boyfriend to go check it out for her. The ex-boyfriend said that there were several drawers and closet doors open and the blinds of the window on the ground. The officer walked through the home with the woman and she noted that her pink rabbit vibrating sex toy was in her nightstand drawer and it was now missing. She also noted that the medicine cabinet and hair products were rearranged. After going through the house further the sex toy was located behind the flat screen TV on an entertainment center and she said that it was definitely not there when she left for work. The woman said that she had not had any problems with anyone and though it might have been kids due to the item that was missing. A Forensic Technician was able to pull fingerprints off of the window and interior wall but was unable to retrieve any from the sex toy.
