Marana police arrested two men on suspicion of making threats against Marana High School.

Jake Brown and Otis Bartley, both 18, were arrested Monday on charges of threats and intimidation and interfering with an educational facility. Both charges are misdemeanors.

On Monday, Jan. 24, officers spoke with a resident who said her son saw some posts the suspects made on a Facebook page that police said appeared to be threats.

Some of the postings read: “Marana wont know what hit em tomorrow,” “Mhs is in for a surprise,” and “Marana high school.r.i.p.”

Police located and interviewed Brown and Bartley who said they didn’t intend to hurt anyone.

“They were interviewed and said it was just a joke,” said Tim Brunenkant, spokesman for the Marana Police Department.

The suspects’ homes were searched and no weapons or evidence were found that would have shown they intended to follow through on their threats.

Brunenkant said the incident did not cause any disruption or cancellation of classes at Marana High School.

    Hope these two boys learned something about journalism....
    Jeez guys, how could you have been so dumb after what's just happened? Look at the likes of what we have on the "news" these days, and how they're being linked to above, regardless of the undisputable fact that they had nada to do with it. People are scared witless, as they should be. It's a crazy world we live in, don't add to it.

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.
