Police reports

On Wednesday, June 6, at 7:15 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a house near Magee Road and First Avenue in response to shots being heard. The caller told police he saw two juveniles on the roof of the neighbor’s house. He told police he did not see a gun and only heard the shots. When police arrived, they met with two subjects on the side of the house who said they did not fire a weapon and had also heard two bangs while on the roof. Police noticed freshly used fireworks on the side of the house. The two suspects said their neighbor had started yelling and cursing at them to get down from the roof because the police had been called. They then admitted to setting off the fireworks and at the time, police noticed a slight odor of intoxicants coming from their breath as they spoke to police. The two also admitted to consuming beer. One’s BAC test returned with a .016 result where the other returned .000. The one with a positive BAC result was cited as a minor in possession of alcohol.

On Tuesday, June 5, at 7:38 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Walmart at Oro Valley Marketplace in response to theft. The loss prevention personnel at the store told police that two males left the store with video games without paying for them and got into a truck and drove away. Police were unable to locate the vehicle. The loss prevention personnel told police they believe the males took at least three games that were worth about $60 total.

On Tuesday, June 5, at 11:36 a.m., Oro Valley police met with a person in the main station’s lobby who said he rode and left his bicycle at a friend’s house back in January. A month later he tried to get the bike back, but his friend said he had lent it to another friend shortly after he left the bike at his house. When the bike owner called the person who last had the bike, he told him he had ridden it to Ironwood Ridge High School, where it was stolen. The bike owner said his and the other kid’s mothers had talked about paying him back for the stolen bike, but as of June 5, he had not been paid. Police questioned him why it had taken so long to retrieve his bike, to which he replied he didn’t have a way to pick up the bike and it was too hot to walk. Police told him it wasn’t hot during January through March. The bike owner did not have a response. He also did not want police to contact the person who last had the bike. The bike is valued at $269.

The total value of the stolen beer was $40.
