Loitering to beg
A man and a woman were arrested at an East Route 66 shopping center on Thursday and booked into the Coconino County Detention Facility after a police officer noticed them asking several individuals for money. The woman actually approached one of the officers and offered to sell him jewelry she had made. When he declined, she asked for money.
The pair were both booked on charges of loitering to beg and the woman was also charged for a small quantity of marijuana found in her possession.
