It was a rough 12 hours for Catalina residents Nick and Rosie Wiley.

At about 11 p.m. Thursday night, their red Chevy Blazer was stolen.

The next morning, on April 11, the Wileys were informed that their vehicle had been found near the corner of Orange Grove Road and Camino de la Tierra.

“Not cool, definitely not cool,” Nick said, observing damage thieves caused to his car.

After a high-speed chase along Orange Grove, the vehicle careened over a dirt median into a corner house at the corner of a cul-de-sac, hitting a car in a carport, taking out the supporting beam of the carport, slamming into a tree and rolling over before coming to a stop right-side-up.

Just before the crash, Deputy Kurt Dabb of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department noticed the stolen vehicle driving suspiciously and decided to pull it over. The driver then sped off before crashing just off Orange Grove Road at about 8:40 a.m., Dabb said.

Dabb apprehended the driver, Anthony Angulo, while bystanders helped capture the passenger, Jose Olivas-Valdez.

Angulo was charged with fleeing from law enforcement, theft of means of transportation, possession of cocaine, third degree burglary and criminal damage. Olivas-Valdez was charged with unlawful use of means of transportation, a charge that amounts to joyriding, Dabb said.

All the charges against Angulo and Olivas-Valdez are felony counts.

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.
