On Tuesday, October 8 around 3:30 p.m., Marana Police Department officers responded to the National Bank of America located at 11853 West Marana Road in response to a robbery that occurred. Upon arrival, the officers determined that the suspects had fled from the scene.

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Unit responded to further the investigation. They learned that two adult males entered the bank and jumped over the teller counters, demanding money. One male was armed with a crowbar and one male was armed with a semi-automatic handgun.

After the men were given an undisclosed amount of money, both males left the bank. The males were last seen leaving east from the bank in a tan Ford 4-door sedan according to Marana Police Department's Public Information Officer Jose Alvarez.

Officers searched the area and located the Ford sedan near Rillito Vista Park. Officers detained and identified three males, which were seen running from the car as:

1. Ardell Dwayne Lewis, 36-years of age.

2. Phillip Michael Willis, 28-years of age.

3. David Leland Barton, 24-years of age.

Detectives confirmed their involvement and placed all three under arrest. The three males were booked into the Pima County Jail for 1 count of Armed Robbery, 1 count of Aggravated Robbery, 1 count of First Degree Burglary, and 3 counts of Aggravated Assault.

The Marana capital improvements 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?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. 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.
