On Sept 2, at approximately 8:16 p.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department Foothills District responded to the Foothills Mall. The 911 caller advised of an armed robbery in the parking lot.

Upon arrival, they interviewed the two female victims and learned that one of them had her purse stolen at gunpoint. The two women were approached by two male individuals while standing by their car. One of the two suspects produced a shotgun and demanded for one of the women to hand over her purse. When she tried to explain that she had no money on her, the suspect escalated his threat to where he held the shotgun to the victim’s face. She then let go of the purse which the suspect took from her. Both males then ran off towards an apartment complex on the west side of the parking lot.

Several deputies, canine units and the Sheriff’s Air Unit responded to the area in an effort to locate the two suspects, but were unable to find them.

The suspects were described as follows:

The suspect holding the shotgun was a Caucasian male, approximately 5’9” tall, 160 to 175 pounds, dark hair, wearing brown or red shorts and a red bandana over his face.

The other suspect was approximately 5 feet, 11 inches tall, also wearing brown or red shorts, but a blue bandana.

The purse was a brown and black handmade purse. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
