On Saturday, July 2, at about 10:40 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to the 13000 block of North Pioneer Way in response to a vehicle burglary.

On Friday, July 1, at about 10:40 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to a call from the gatehouse at 10525 N. La Reserve in regard to trespassing. The caller told police an unfamiliar vehicle entered the community without permission. When the driver was asked where he was going, he told the person, “Mexico.” A short time later, the police officer noticed a vehicle matching the description traveling northbound on North La Reserve. Before the officer could begin a pursuit, the driver pulled over on his own. When asked for his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance, the driver handed the officer his AAA membership card. Police also noticed a bottle of rum that was nearly full resting on the passenger seat. When asked where he was coming from, the man told police he was coming from America and heading to the coast. The officer told the man to step out of his vehicle. When another officer arrived, the responding officer met with him by his patrol car. At this time, the driver got back into his vehicle. When officers told him to get out of his car again, he told them to leave him alone and started to drink out of the rum bottle. Officers took the bottle from him and told him he was under arrest. They told him several times to get out of his vehicle. Mountain Vista Fire Department treated him for a cut on his elbow and a blister on his foot. He was arrested for driving under the influence.

On Wednesday, June 29, Oro Valley police talked with a woman over the phone who believed her wallet was stolen the day prior. She told police she was at the Shell gas station at 12885 N. Oracle Road around 3:45 p.m. She said while she was pumping gas, she noticed a man next to her at the pumps. She doesn’t know if that man was the one who stole her wallet but noted that it was the last time she remembered having it. She told police she had her back turned for a moment; her windows were up but she wouldn’t have been able to hear a car door open or close due to traffic and overhead music. Her wallet contained several credit cards, which she has since canceled, her driver’s license and other miscellaneous items.
