That was no lady — it wasn't even my friend's wife

SOUTH JEFFCO — Some fat-fingered dialing called up trouble for a local man who tried to phone his friend's wife and contacted another person by mistake. A woman called the sheriff's office, saying that a random guy kept calling her and pretending to be her son. He apparently called four times and sent her a text message that said, "What's up." During the first call, the man asked if she was going to be home that night. The woman said yes, but that she had to go to be in bed early to get up for work the next morning. She received a call on the other line and told the man whom she thought was her son that she would call him right back. After that call was over, she called her son, who said that he had not called her, and she became worried that she told some random guy that she would be home for the evening. When a deputy arrived, he called the man, who said the woman had a similar number to his friend's wife, and their voices sounded similar. He apologized for the misunderstanding and promised that he would not call the woman again. The woman apparently threatened his life and said she would call the sheriff again if the guy called her again.

Stranger in a strange town

SOUTH JEFFCO — If you find yourself in a strange town and you've been drinking some strange brew while driving, it might be a good idea to find a parking and take a minute to think. Just don’t pick a parking lot happens to be owned and operated by the largest military contractor in the world, namely Lockheed Martin. Last week, a deputy was called to the contractor's parking lot by a security guard who said he had a male in custody who appeared to be intoxicated. The man gave a poor performance during roadside maneuvers, and was taken into custody for investigation of driving under the influence. The man did not want to submit to a breath test or a blood test at the scene, and was transported to the Jefferson County Detention Facility.

Whistle while you work

SOUTH JEFFCO — Some jobs are inherently more fun than others. Most people would rather be the front man for the most popular band in the world, and enjoy all the perks that come with it, than work in the middle of the desert counting grains of sand. Just a guess. But no matter how one feels about a job, smoking pot prior to your shift is probably not the best idea. A Littleton man found that out late last week. A deputy noticed the man sitting in his vehicle, and saw that he was loading marijuana into a pipe to smoke it. The man admitted everything, even handing over his stash and saying that he just wanted to get high before his shift. The deputy confiscated the stash, the pipe and a pipe cleaner, gave the man a ticket and released him to go to work.
