TUCSON, Ariz. -- The man police say caused part of downtown Tucson to be closed down Wednesday has been arrested.

They say David Mitchell from Sahuarita had a court order not to have ammunition. But the white box truck he was driving contained rifles, handguns and several hundred rounds of ammo.

The 50-year-old is charged with violating a court order, a misdemeanor.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- The first woman TPD ever suspect by Tucson police of having child pornography, is caught after a four year ordeal.

Carolina Portugal, 27, took off for Mexico rather than face charges after being indicted.

But this week she agreed to surrender and is now back in Pima County. However Portugal has already bonded out of jail.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- A human skull with a bullet still inside, found by a family's dog last year has given authorities an idea of what a murder victim might have looked like.

The FBI made a facial reconstruction.  The person was between 18 and 30 years old with a large amount of dental work.

The skull was found on Orange Grove Road on the northwest side.

If you know who this might be, call 911 or 88-CRIME.
