On March 18, 2013, at approximately 10:00 p.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department Foothills District responded to the Bank of America near Thornydale Road and Linda Vista Boulevard. The initial report indicated that a female victim had been robbed at knifepoint.

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division also responded to investigate.

They learned from the victim that earlier that night, she had deposited her paycheck and also wanted to withdraw some money from the drive-through ATM. While she was still seated in her car, a male individual wearing a Halloween mask appeared. The suspect said something to the victim, but she was not able to understand as she only speaks Spanish. She also described the suspect held a knife that was possibly a larger folding knife.

The victim pulled her arm back inside her vehicle and drove off. Through her rearview mirror, she observed the suspect manipulating the ATM. It was later determined that no money had been withdrawn from the account.

Surveillance footage obtained from the bank showed what appeared to be a male individual with a light complexion and dark hair, wearing dark clothing and what looks like a green demon mask with purple horns. Detectives are asking the public for any information on the possible identity of the suspect or any other information pertinent to this case. Please call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME with any tips.

The investigation continues.

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.
