On January 2, a Sahuarita officer responding to a traffic hazard uncovered a deceased dog near South La Villita and South Rancho Sahuarita Boulevard. Lacking a microchip, the officer relocated the dog to a nearby desert area. The owners, discovering their pet’s fate nine hours later, requested and obtained the remains through police assistance.
In a separate incident, a West Calle de Marzo resident sought Sahuarita police help regarding a stray cat under her shed. Although officers were unable to retrieve the feline, they advised her to contact them once she managed to “apprehend said cat.”
Trailhead Troubles: Cattle on the Loose
Sahuarita police took action by placing police tape at a trailhead off West Quail Crossing Boulevard. The installation of a new sidewalk had inadvertently created a break in the fencing, allowing cattle to access the roadway.
During investigations into a 911 hang-up call in the 900 block of West Calle Tronco Seco, officers found that a child had made the call due to earlier reprimands from a parent.
Fraud Alert: A Costly Misstep
On January 3, a West Placita Sinfin resident reported to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department that they had purchased a $23,000 cashier’s check for an unfamiliar individual. The resident now believes they were taken advantage of in this financial transaction.

Personal Intrusions and Stolen Property
A North De La Canoa resident contacted the PCSD on January 5 to report concerns about the man she was staying with, accusing him of hacking her phone and social media. She also disclosed previous incidents of stolen clothing.
On January 8, several reports reached the PCSD. One caller reported the cutting of flex hose on South Canoa Drive and West Quail Way. Another individual expressed frustration over being unable to retrieve a golf cart left at Valley Golf Cars. Meanwhile, a distressed woman called 911 multiple times, seeking guidance for 16 missed calls on her phone.
Property Theft and Neighborhood Tensions
The week concluded with reports of property theft and neighborhood disputes. An Alpine Circle resident reported the theft of their electric bike from the driveway, while a South Country Club Road resident informed the sheriff’s department about a neighbor who came to their house, turned off the water, and engaged in a heated altercation with the resident and their spouse. No signs of criminal or suspicious activity were found in response to reported gunshots and screams earlier in the week, highlighting the importance of thorough investigations.
