The Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) and Tucson Police Department (TPD) have made an arrest related to a series of locker break-ins at various LA Fitness and Platinum Fitness gyms. 

A Criminal Investigations Unit with the OVPD began investigating the crimes in November after learning thefts had taken place from gyms located in Marana, Tucson, and Pima County, as well as the University of Arizona.

Danielle Bratton, 21, was arrested by the Tucson Police Department on Dec. 13.

During the investigation, authorities had evidence showing that Bratton is allegedly responsible for the thefts. Staff members of LA Fitness and Platinum Fitness locations were notified to be on the lookout for her. Once she was seen entering an LA Fitness on Golf Links Road, employees of the gym called police, who then arrived and took her into custody. 

The OVPD Criminal Investigations Unit also arrived on scene, and located several stolen items in Bratton’s possession from Oro Valley victims. 

Bratton was booked into the Pima County Jail for violation of probation and additional charges including, six counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of theft of a credit card, one count of fraudulent schemes and artifices, and one count of stolen property.

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.
