On June 18, at about 10:10 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a call reporting a possibly impaired driver who was driving northbound on Oracle Road. As an officer tried to catch up to the vehicle, he saw the car make a left turn onto Rancho Vistoso Boulevard on a red arrow. The officer turned on his emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop once he was able to catch up to the vehicle. Police noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverages coming from the driver's mouth. She had red, watery, bloodshot eyes, which were droopy. Her speech was slow and slurred, and she mumbled. The officer asked her if she knew why she had been pulled over. She replied, "‘Cause I was speeding," according to police reports. The officer asked if she had anything to drink that night and she replied, "Yes." A DUI enforcement officer was called to the scene to conduct an investigation. The driver was arrested for DUI, taken to a police substation to have her blood taken, cited and released.

On June 17, at about 2:30 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to 8255 N. Oracle Road in response to a domestic dispute. The caller told police he had heard a man and woman arguing, and glass breaking. Police interviewed both subjects. The woman told police she and her boyfriend, with whom she lives, got into an argument about their relationship. She told police while they arguing on the porch, the man became angry at one point and threw his beverage glass across the complex. He then went inside and banged his head against the bathroom wall because he was upset. The man told police the same thing. The man was placed under arrest for domestic violence disorderly conduct and domestic violence criminal damage. He was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

On June 14, at about 1:45 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the 400 block of W. Camino Fairhaven Avenue in response to a burglary. The homeowner's son-in-law reported the burglary; he told police his mother-in-law passed away in November. The last time he had been in the home was about three months ago, and the last time someone from the family had been in the home was about a month ago. The front door and wrought iron gate were unlocked. When the man came in house, he noticed a rear window had been shattered, he told police. Most of the valuable items in the house had been already moved out. After a search of the house, the only thing found to be missing was a jar with approximately $20 in loose change. The damage to the window was estimated at $200. The man requested extra police patrols in the area.

On June 15, at about 1 p.m., Oro Valley police spoke to a woman over the phone saying her checks had been stolen from her apartment. The victim told police she thought her ex-boyfriend had taken the checks because the canceled checks had been made out to him. She said at least 10 checks had been cashed, exceeding $1,000, including overdraft fees, since April. She told police the signature on the stolen checks did not look anything like her own, adding the checks had caused her checking account to be overdrawn and her debit card to be declined. She didn't originally report it to police because her ex-boyfriend is the father of their child and she didn't want to get him in trouble. The victim told police she had called her ex-boyfriend and asked him about the checks. He told her he would pay her back but she hasn't received anything from him. The victim told police she would go to her bank to get copies of her statements with the checks in question and would prosecute for theft and forgery. On the following day, the victim told police she no longer wanted to be a victim and did not want to prosecute.
