Tempe Police: Woman offers meth to stranger in Jack in the Box

Tempe Police reported the following incidents Tuesday:

  • A 45-year-old Tempe woman was arrested April 15 on the 1000 block of East Baseline Road on suspicion of dangerous drug possession and use, according to a police report.

    The woman entered a Jack in the Box, locked exterior doors and walked into the bathroom, police said.

    When she came out, she asked one of the witnesses to follow her back into the bathroom, the report said.

    Once in the bathroom, the woman took methamphetamine out of her bag, showed it to the witness and said, “Try this, it’s the sweetest s--t ever,” police reported.

    The witness declined and exited the bathroom with the woman following behind her, police said.

    She then entered the Jack in the Box kitchen and placed her methamphetamine in a ketchup box under the counter, the report said.

    Officers performed a flash test at the restaurant to confirm that the woman had methamphetamine, police reported.

    The woman was placed under arrest at 10:42 p.m. and was transported to Tempe City Jail, where she was booked, according to the report.

  • A 19-year-old Phoenix man was arrested April 19 on the 700 block of South Mill Avenue on suspicion of giving a false report to an officer, being a minor in consumption and marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession, according to a police report.

    Two women originally yelled for police for help getting two men out of their vehicle, police said.

    When police asked for one of the men’s ID, he told the officer that he was 21 years old and gave the officer the identification card of his older brother, the report said.

    The officer noticed that the man had bloodshot, watery eyes and had slow speech, police reported.

    The officer also noticed a clear plastic baggie sticking out of the man’s pocket as they were speaking, police said.

    The man handed the arresting officer the bag of marijuana after the officer asked what was in the man’s pocket, the report said.

    A search of his person revealed his actual ID and an expired medical marijuana card, police reported.

    The man was put under arrest at 2:21 a.m. after the officer found the man’s marijuana, police said.

    When police spoke to the man after the arrest, he told officers that he used his brother’s ID so that he would not get in trouble for drinking and that he got the marijuana from a dispensary because they did not really look at his ID, police reported.

    The man was booked and held at Tempe City Jail, according to the report.
