On Saturday, June 21, at about 9:45 p.m., Oro Valley police spoke to a man on the phone about possible vandalism. The caller told police that about 15 minutes prior he was watching TV with his wife when someone rang the doorbell. When he opened the door, he found a small ball that he referred to as a stink bomb. Though there was no damage, there was a small stain where the ball was sitting. Police searched the neighborhood, but didn’t see anyone. 


On Saturday, June 21, at about 5:25 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a report of an irate person at Peter Piper Pizza, 7621 N. Oracle Road. When police arrived, they noticed a woman shouting profanity in and outside the business. Police learned two family members were fighting because one woman wouldn’t let the other woman hold her baby. In retaliation, the woman pushed and shoved the other woman. The woman who pushed the other was cited for assault and disorderly conduct and transported to the Pima County Adult Detention Center.


On Monday, June 17, at about 3:14 a.m., Oro Valley police saw a juvenile run across La Cañada Drive where there wasn’t a crosswalk. The office asked him to come over and talk to him. The subject told police he was trying to get home before he got in trouble. Police could smell marijuana emanating from the 16-year-old subject, to which he denied having any on him. Seeing as his curfew was midnight, police attempted to call his parents, who didn’t answer. Police then told him they were going to take him to his house to talk to his parents in person. Though he initially refused to be searched, which is a department policy for transporting anyone in a police car, he reluctantly provided a small cloth pouch with fresh marijuana in it, along with a glass pipe. He was cited for possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and violation of curfew and released to his legal guardian.
