Marana

On Nov. 11, at 2:05 a.m., Marana police responded to Old Father Inn regarding a fight in progress. Upon arrival, police found that order had been restored. The business owner told the officers the parties involved, none of which he knew, had since left the area. Nobody was reported to have been injured while the pushing occurred. 

 

On Nov. 9, at noon, Marana police responded to Walmart on Cortaro Road in reference to a shoplifter in custody. The responding officer met with the reporting Asset Protection employee, who stated he had been observing a woman as she went through the checkout lane and purchased several items. As she began to leave, the associate noticed a bag of dog food and 12-pack of soda under her cart that she had not paid for, as well as several other items in her purse. The subject told the officer that money was very tight with her and her family, and that the incident was her first time shoplifting. The subject was cited and released at the scene, and her license, which was suspended, was seized. 

 

On Nov. 7, at 11:18 a.m., Marana police responded to AM PM in reference to shoplifting. The officer made contact with the store manager, who stated a male subject had stolen 10 packs of Marlboro Red cigarettes, valued at $69.81, and left the store at approximately 11:10 a.m. The manager said she had put the cigarettes on the counter to ring up the customer, when he grabbed them and walked out without paying. The manager said she would look into getting surveillance footage and contact police when it was ready.

 

On Nov. 6, at 4:28 p.m., Marana police responded to a residence regarding identity theft. The reporting victim told the officer her debit card was being used in Coolidge. Three transactions were placed on the card, for amounts of $346.43, $333.37, and $333.03. The victim said her husband was in Georgia on business, so nobody should have been using the card in Coolidge. Vantage West Credit Union deactivated the card.

 

On Nov. 5, at 12:23 p.m., Marana police responded to the area of Arizona Pavilions in reference to theft. The responding officer was informed that copper wires belonging to Century Link had been dug up and taken. The reporting party told the officer six feet of wire had been taken, the damage valued at $2,000. No suspects have been identified.
