Police reports from the northwest side from July 22 - August 8

Marana

• About 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 5, police arrested two female juveniles on charges of shoplifting after the pair allegedly admitted to stealing several items of clothing from the Kohl’s department store at 5850 W. Arizona Pavilions Drive. A store security guard saw the girls repeatedly enter a changing room with items that they apparently stuffed into large shoulder bags, according to a police report. The store worker stopped the girls and called police. “Before (an officer) could even ask any questions, they both stated ‘It was a stupid thing to do,’” according to an officer’s report on the incident. The girls were arrested on shoplifting charges and released to their parents.

• About 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, police arrested a man for allegedly stealing a pair of $250 sunglasses from Costco, 3901 W. Costco Drive. A store security guard stopped a man after watching him “select (the glasses) from a display shelf, use a knife to remove them from the packaging, and concealed them on his person,” according to an incident report. The store worker told police the man was a “usual customer” who spends about $500 to $600 a week at the discount store. When questioned by police, the man admitted to stealing the glasses. Furthermore, “he stated he had the money to pay for them, but did not offer an explanation why he had stolen them,” according to a police report. An officer arrested the man and later released him.

Oro Valley

• About 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22, an officer pulled over a car for running a red light and found marijuana and a pipe on the car’s back seat. The female driver said she had just “took a hit” from the pipe just before getting pulled over, according to a police report. The officer arrested the girl on charges of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. The girl later was released to her grandparents.

• About 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28, police responded to reports of a fight in progress at Canyon Del Oro High School, 25 W. Calle Concordia. A woman at the school met with police and said her son and a friend were “attacked” by three other male teens at the school, according to a police report. The incident allegedly stemmed from a previous fight between the boys earlier that summer. The woman said that when she tried to break up the fight, the other boys threatened her. But, a witness told police that it was the mother who was “aggressive and approached (the boys) and started the argument,” according to a police report. Officers told school officials of the incident, and as a result, four of the boys were “put on notice for behavior.” No arrests were made.

• About 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30, police arrested two juveniles on charges of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. The arrests came after an officer stopped the boys’ car at Overton Road, near the Cañada del Oro Wash. The boys later were released to their parents.

• About 9:45 p.m. on Thursday, July 31, police arrested a man at Northwest Medical Center-Oro Valley on charges of disorderly conduct. The hospital’s admission nurse told police the man had become irate while trying to admit his sick wife to the hospital. When police questioned the man, they  “noticed a strong odor of intoxicants … (and) that his eyes were red, watery and bloodshot,” according to police. Even while talking to police, the man “yelled continuously and remained uncooperative,” according to an incident report. Finally, the man told officers to “just take me to jail,” police said. The officers obliged, charging him with disorderly conduct. The man was taken to the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

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.
