Credit card fraud
On Friday, June 3, at about 5:50 p.m., Oro Valley police contacted an Oro Valley resident in response to credit card fraud. The victim told police she received a call from her bank saying that someone had used her credit card to make several purchases in New Jersey, adding that it had flagged the company's system for possible fraud. The victim was not familiar with any of the three purchases totaling more that $600 that made were made. Her bank said they would cancel her card, send her a new one and reimburse her for the unauthorized charges. The bank rep asked her to file a report with the police. She told police she had not used the card to buy anything online recently, but did use her card to purchase tickets over the phone for the Gaslight Theater.
On Thursday, June 2, at about 11 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Sun City Vistoso Community Association building in response to a theft. When police arrived, the head librarian told the officers she left work on May 24 and returned on June 2. When she returned, residents asked her why the video selection was no longer available. She noticed several dozen videos were missing and began to take inventory of the entire video section. She told police that approximately 50 people had access to the building after hours. There are no clues or suspects.
On Tuesday, May 31, at about 2:20 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a call regarding the 11000 block of Canada Creek Drive in response to a structure fire. When police arrived, they saw smoke coming from the south side of the home but did not see any flames. The smoke appeared to be coming from a large, green trash receptacle that had been placed up against the house. The home's electricity and gas were shut off and the neighboring house closest to the fire was evacuated. The homeowner said he had placed charcoals, which had been watered down, in a bag and then placed that bag in the green trash receptacle several hours earlier. There was no major fire damage to the house.
