The Pima County Sheriff's department is looking for a woman in association with a late night robbery at a south-side Denny's Restaurant.

Deputies say she went into a Denny's on Irvington road last Wednesday, took money from the cash register, then ran off with an accomplice.

She's said to be 18 to 25-years-old and about 5 feet tall.  If you recognize her call 911 or 88-CRIME.


Police say a woman held up a Compass Bank on La Cholla near Magee. She reportedly handed the teller an envelope demanding money, took the cash and left.

She's described as a white woman, 25 to 30-years-old, about 5'7" to 5'7" tall, with a medium build and reddish brown hair.

She was last seen wearing a hat, camouflage fatigues and dark boots.


Tucson police have determined that a 29-year-old man they found dying in the street near Golf Links and Harrison, committed suicide.

Before he died, the 29-year-old made it to a near-by house where residents called police. He later died at the hospital.


City of Phoenix employees could soon work four days a week. The city is considering making Fridays a mandatory day off. The goal would be to save money and improve morale. If the move is approved, Phoenix would be the largest city in the country to have a reduced work week.


People in Phoenix had a bit of cleaning to do Wednesday after monsoon storms Tuesday night. The storms left broken tree limbs, downed power lines, and dirty swimming pools. The power was knocked out in parts of Mesa and Apache Junction.
