Police and Crime

Oro Valley

On Saturday, May 4, at 4:10 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a house on the 12000 block of North New Dawn Avenue in response to a theft. The victim told police that a tent and chairs were stolen from her backyard while she was home. The victim was not sure if they were taken or blew away, because it was a windy day. The gate to the backyard was locked and her dog never barked. The victim and police searched the area but were unable to find the equipment, valued at $119.


On Saturday, May 4, at 1:14 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to a fight in progress at Noble Hops at 1335 W. Lambert Lane. When police arrived, the two men involved in the fight had left the restaurant. Police found one of the men at a nearby gas station. Witnesses told police that there was a small fight between two men, which was broken up and the two were separated. A short time later, one of the men came up to the other and began another fight, which ended with one being thrown to the ground and punched repeatedly. The subject they found gave inconsistent statements about what happened. Due to the restaurant not wanting to be a victim and the other person not being found, the man was not arrested for assault.


On Sunday, April 28 at 2:21 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to a report of a party with juveniles at the Hilton El Conquistador at 10000 N. Oracle Road. A security guard told police there was a loud party with possible underage people drinking. When police arrived, they found eight people under the age of 18 in the room along with empty beer cans and various bottles of liquor. No one admitted to renting the room or could provide proof of renting the room. One told police that an unknown 18-year-old rented the room and they all had permission to be in the room. All of the people in the room were removed from the room and police had them call their parents to pick them up. 



On Friday, May 3, at 4:40 a.m., Marana police responded to a domestic dispute at a house on the 7800 block of West Bodie Road. The husband told police that during a verbal argument with his wife, he mentioned taking “some pills.” At that time, the wife called police. He told police that he was just “talking stupid” and would never take the drugs. After talking with the wife and the husband, police believed it would not be a problem if the couple stayed together after police left the scene. 


On Monday, April 29 at about 3 p.m., Marana police responded to a house on the 11000 block of West Prairie Willow Drive in response to a theft of a scooter. The victim told police that her son had taken his scooter to a nearby house. When he came home, he left the scooter in the garage with the door open. The $70 scooter was missing the next time they came out.
