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.

City and county residents who want to report a crime but wish to remain anonymous may call Silent Witness at 774-6111 or (877) 29-CRIME. Rewards of up to $2,000 are given for information that leads to an arrest.

    Good job cops,I knew that this overwhelming sense of dread I feel in my neighborhood was caused by panhandlers. Spread that holiday cheer. The giving spirit of Christ is truly alive.

    Thanks as well to AZDS for keeping our community safe with their spot-on, unbiased journalism.

    It's private property. The Salvation Army bell-ringers are there with the permission of the owner. The folks begging and selling jewelry were not wanted there by the people whose property they were on.

    Since when is that a crime? Perhaps next time they can just stand in front of a store and ring a bell continuously. THAT appears to be legal.
