Oro Valley

On Saturday, Aug. 10, at about 12:40 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to an apartment at 450 Cool Drive in response to a loud party. Thirteen minors were cited and released for underage consumption. One of the juveniles was also cited for false reporting to law enforcement for saying he didn’t have an ID and lied about his birthday. Two marijuana pipes were found outside the apartment.  


On Wednesday, Aug. 7, at about 3:28 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a report of a hit and run at the WalMart at 7951 N. Oracle Road. Police could not find the person who reported the incident, but spoke with her on the phone. She did not wish to be a victim, but told police that she got into a verbal argument with the driver of another car. She told the driver to stop because the other driver almost backed up into her. The driver yelled at the woman to get out of the way as she stood in front of her car. After not moving, the driver lightly drove the car into her, barely touching her leg. She was not injured.


On Tuesday, Aug. 6, at about 1:06 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Golf Villas at 10950 N. La Cañada Drive in response to a theft. An employee told police that sometime between noon and 1 p.m. someone took a drill from a tool bag that was in the back of a golf cart. The drill was valued at $169.



On Friday, Aug. 16, at 12:49 p.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department responded to a house on Sunbright Drive in response to a burglary that had happened the previous day. The caller told deputies that before taking a nap in a recliner, she left her screen door closed and unlocked and the front door open. When she woke up, she saw a man in a nicely dressed suit standing in her doorway. The man walked past her couch to where she was and took $400 in cash off the table next to her. The man then walked out of the house. The woman told deputies that she didn’t call earlier because she didn’t think it would do any good. Deputies then met with the woman’s daughter, who told deputies that she had heard the same story over and over again during the past few days and each time the dollar amount changes. She told deputies that her mother is suffering from the early stages of dementia and highly doubted the incident happened. 


On Thursday, Aug. 15, at 6:10 p.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriffs Department responded to a report of an unwanted person at the Subway on the 5000 block of North La Cañada Drive. When deputies arrived, they found a man sitting on a bench near the entrance to the store drinking a beer. The man also showed signs that he had ingested marijuana. He was cited for drinking in public and released.
