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.

Videos stolen

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.

Possible fire

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.

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.
