On Aug. 7 at approximately 2:30 p.m., officers from Operations Division East responded to the Wells Fargo Bank located inside the Safeway at 8740 East Broadway after an employee called 911 to report that a robbery had just occurred. Upon arrival, the officers confirmed that the suspect had left prior to their arrival and that no one inside the bank was injured.

Detectives from the Robbery Unit responded to continue the investigation. They learned that the suspect entered the bank and presented a note to the teller demanding money and threatening harm. After he was given an undisclosed amount of money, he left the bank and was last seen southbound on foot from the Safeway. After interviewing witnesses and reviewing the security video from the bank, detectives believe that the suspect involved in this incident is the same person suspected in four other Tucson area bank robberies.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, 5 feet, 05 inches to 5 feet, 07 inches tall, medium build, wearing white collared shirt with a black shirt underneath, black jeans and a black fedora.

A surveillance photograph from the Wells Fargo Bank is included below. Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of this suspect is encouraged to call 911 or 88- CRIME.

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.
