The man told police that he was selling his 2009 Scott Addict R4 road bike, which valued at about $2,200. He met a man who he arranged to meet through Craigslist.com.

On Tuesday, Aug. 28, at about 7:29 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to an apartment at 10700 N. La Reserve.

On Sunday, Aug. 26, at about 6:50 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Walmart at 2150 E. Tangerine Road after an employee saw a young man collapse. The store’s Loss Prevention Officer saw the man take a can of canned air, huff it and then walk around a little more. The man then huffed the can of air again, passed out and collapsed on the floor. The man told police he came into the store to just take a couple of hits off the can, then put it back on the shelf and leave. He also refused medical attention by telling police, “No, I am fine now. I guess I just took too big of a hit.” The man, who had been arrested for shoplifting from another Walmart, was arrested, released, and told he would be cited for trespassing if he entered any Walmart in the future. The value of the canned air was $4.96.
