On Saturday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m., an Oro Valley Police school resource officer at Wilson K-8 School responded to an incident of disorderly conduct involving a pair of students. Apparently, the boys were wrestling when one boy put his arm around the other's neck and choked him briefly, causing him to pass out momentarily before a teacher intervened. The boys were involved in a similar incident the previous day. The boys told police they are friends and were only playing around. They apologized for the incidents. No arrests were made or charges filed.

On Wednesday, April 21 at 11:30 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to Ironwood Ridge High School in response to a possible burglary. When police arrived, the suspects had already fled after school janitors interrupted them. The janitors said the suspects drove off in a dark pickup truck, nearly running down the janitors in the process. Other officers located the truck and two of its passengers at a house nearby. The janitors were taken there where they confirmed the identities of the two suspects. The suspects were cited for trespassing and released. They identified for police other people involved in the incident, all teenaged students at the high school. The next evening, police contacted one of the other teens at home. He was cooperative with police and admitted to trespassing at the school, but disputed the janitors' account of nearly running over the employees. He was cited for trespassing and reckless driving and released. Police could not locate the final teen. A copy of the police report was given to the school resource officer who agreed to cite the teen at school. During the investigation, the teens told police they had attempted to break into the school because they intended to hang a sculpture of the school mascot from the roof.

On Tuesday, April 20, at 7:30 a.m., an Oro Valley police motorcycle officer stopped the driver of a SUV for throwing trash out of the car. The driver had thrown a cigarette butt out of the window that hit the windscreen of the officer's motorcycle. The driver told the officer that she normally doesn't litter, but on that day her ashtray was full. The driver was cited for littering.

On Wednesday, April 14 at 9:30 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to Canyon Del Oro High School, where school officials said two students reported to class late and smelling of marijuana. The officer noted that the students had red eyes, responded slowly to questions and appeared to be under the influence of marijuana. The students' bags were searched, but no drugs or paraphernalia were found. Police then contacted a third student who had ridden to school with the other two. A search of the student's backpack turned up a pipe with marijuana residue inside. Police then got a search warrant to inspect the vehicle the students drove to school. A search of the car turned up a small bag of marijuana. The students told police they had driven around in the car before school and smoked marijuana. The students were arrested for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia and released.
