In March, the Oro Valley Police Department School Resource Officers Unit began an investigation involving a possible inappropriate relationship between a high school teacher at Ironwood Ridge High School and a female student.
The investigation was launched immediately once officers became aware of the incident involving Robert Richard Brush, a marketing teacher at Ironwood Ridge High School; however, there was insufficient evidence at that time to make an arrest.
On May 16, the Oro Valley Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit received additional information on Brush that they were able to substantiate and gather enough evidence to affect an arrest. Brush, a 31 year-old male, has been charged with one count of sexual misconduct with a minor (felony 2) and was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center.
This investigation is ongoing, and Oro Valley Police is working in conjunction with Amphitheater School District. If anyone has any additional information that may assist with the investigation, please contact the Oro Valley Police Department at 229-4900 or 88-crime.
