Suspect sought in NW bank robberies

Pima County Sheriff’s detectives are searching for a 40-year-old man they believe robbed two Northwest banks.

Based on an anonymous tip, detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Craig L. Kuehn, who they allege robbed the Wells Fargo, 6270 N. Oracle Road, on Nov. 4, and the Bank of America, 7130 N. Oracle Road, on Nov. 10.

In both instances, according to a statement by Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Dawn Barkman, detectives say Kuehn approached tellers with notes demanding money and left the banks with undisclosed sums.

Investigators have yet to locate Kuehn, who resides in the Tucson area, according to Barkman.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call 911 or 88-CRIME.

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.
