Police and Crime


On May 16, at 9:03 a.m., a Marana police officer observed graffiti on the east wall of Bedroxx Bowling. The officer observed that the graffiti appeared to be isolated to the outside of the east wall that faced Camino Martin. Nobody was in the area, nor was any physical evidence available. The first tag read “Rich,” and the second tag was unreadable. Several photos were taken and placed into evidence.

On May 16, at 9:44 a.m., Marana police responded to a call referencing vandalism at a business. The officer made contact with the reporting employee, who said he had found graffiti on the south side of the building complex. The employee also noted there was a crack on the wall. The graffiti read “JR,” and appeared faded. The employee was not sure how long the graffiti had been there. No suspects have been identified at this time. 

On May 16, at 8:43 a.m., a Marana police officer noticed graffiti at Ina Self Storage, along the property’s east wall. The officer conducted a search but found nobody in the area. Three different tags were on the wall, one small in size with blue paint, and two others in black paint. One of the tags read “DTF.” Photographs were taken of the graffiti. 

On May 15 at 5:57 a.m., Marana police responded to a dirt lot along Tangerine Road in reference to criminal damage. The officer made contact with the victim, who stated that his company commercial vehicle had been parked in the parking lot the last four days, and someone had smashed out his driver window. The door was still locked, and nothing had been taken out. The victim pointed out concentric circle marks in the dirt, suggesting someone had been doing burnouts in the area close to the truck, which may have caused rocks to kick up and damage the window. There are no suspects at this time.

On May 14, at 9:58 a.m., Marana police made telephonic contact with a victim referencing fraudulent activity on her debit card. The victim told the officer she found a charge of $165.56 for a purchase she had not made. The victim stated she had already closed the card. She was issued victim’s rights.

On May 13 at 4:10 p.m., Marana police responded to a call referencing criminal damage. The responding officer met with the victim, who explained that when he arrived home the windshield to his 2008 Dodge truck was damaged. The windshield was completely shattered, likely from a baseball bat or some type of projectile. The officer spoke with a neighbor, who said he did not witness the incident, but noticed that his and the victim’s trashcans had been knocked over, as well as others in the neighborhood. Photos were taken for evidence.
