Royal Paper 31201 W. Thayer Rd. Gila Bend, AZ 85337 July 1, 2022 Found property July 2, 2022 Suspicious person • Larceny: larceny from a building • Wanted person: Tiara Arviso, age 34, ar- rested on a PCSD warrant for disordery conduct • Suspicious vehicle • Found property • Public assist: motorist July 3, 2022 Dog bite • Illegal burn: distur- bance, no criminal violation How to reach the sheriff’s office Most people know that the number to dial in an emergency is 911, but what if it’s not an emer- gency? What if you want to just talk to a deputy, the station com- mander, or the sheriff himself? In Ajo, the non-emergency number is 520-387-8539. It’s nor- mally answered by a dispatcher – the same person who would an- swer a 911 call. To reach the district com- mander, Lt. Jeremy Olsen, people may call him at his office at 520- 351-3128 or send him an e-mail at Jeremy.Olsen@sheriff.pima.gov. Sheriff Chris Nanos may be reached at his office at 520-351- 4700 or by e-mailing Sheriff@ sheriff.pima.gov. Nanos said these two threads of communication are best for track- ing community situations and concerns and for transparency. “I read and respond to these emails,” he said. “My executive coordina- tor Caroline puts them on a task/ tickler list to ensure members of the community are contacted by command staff and their concerns are being addressed. Caroline and my Bureau Chiefs follow up with command staff – and it is much easier to track.” He added that he personally will also forward these messages to “directed patrol on the field, criminal investigations, captains, lieutenants, and internal affairs if need be.” July 4, 2022 Found property • Wanted per- son: Eduardo Perez, age 18, ar- rested on a felony warrant out of Maricopa County • Violation of court order: Miguel Maldonado, age 21, arrested for violation of court order; traveling with pro- tected party • Traffic accident: assist other agency • Unknown problem: public assist, check welfare • Wanted person: Omri Valisto, arrested on a PCSD war- rant for shoplifting • Violation of court order: civil matter • Stolen vehicle: suspicious vehicle July 5, 2022 Burglary: no-forced-entry bur- glary of residence in 700 block of Jefferson • Lost property: larceny from building • Suspicious activ- ity: trespassing July 6, 2022 Assault: aggravated assault/ domestic violence • Violation of court order: Alejandro Figueroa, age 37, arrested for violation of court order, traveling with the pro- tected party • Suspicious person • Stolen vehicle; civil matter July 7, 2022 Suspicious activity • Lost prop- erty • DUI: Jose Sandoval, age 33, cite & release arrest for DUI Information for the Sheriff’s Log is received from the Ajo District of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department in response to the newspaper’s request for public information.

Pima St., Gila Bend AZ. 928-683-2366 Letter to the editor Lights for safety? Editor: I felt so encouraged by so many supporters after my previous letter to the editor about “blinders and beauties” referring to the porch, flood and yard lights that are per- missible in Pima County based on the Outdoor Lighting Code (PCOLC). As a reminder, the PCOLC has been the law of the land since (originally 1976) 2009 with updates in 2012 and now again in 2022. Please go to www. pima.gov to read the outdoor lighting code. Also encouraging is the beauty of many “to-code” porch, flood and yard lights visible in town. For example, on East First Ave. in the 300 block there are numer- ous homes with lovely solar yard lights, and beautiful porch lights that put a pool of light on your home and in the front yard without blinding anyone’s eyes and with- out “light trespass” into neigh- bors’ yards. Especially beautiful in the 200-100 block are ceramic porch lights, flagpole lights from top down, strings of lights under a carport and a veranda, and a motion-activated porch light that comes on when one passes, then goes off again. Most new light fixtures come equipped with mo- tion detectors as well as day/night sensors so use them to your ad- vantage, and make sure they are shielded so as not to be a blinder or cause light trespass. Of course, the Health Center has beautiful lighting except for the two code- violating lights on the north side of the building. Too bad the school added code-violating lighting at some point as the original lighting is noticeably more effective. In 2010 in a national study of schools the results indicated that there was no difference in inci- dences of vandalism and crime as to whether the school had outdoor lighting or not. So, while your lights may provide you the illusion of safety, and judging by our new people in town it seems that the only acceptable light is one that blinds the heck out of the robber, we are best advised to conform to the PCOLC and leave the crime to the cops. I mean really. Don’t you think a surprise (to-code) light that comes on when the criminal ap- proaches is better than a constant- on blinder? Are you law-abiding or not? Fix your outdoor porch, flood, and yard lights folks. Marie NaVeaux The Ajo Store WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!
