A man was arrested Jan. 26 for allegedly stealing a chainsaw from Maricopa Ace Hardware and then riding away on a bicycle. He was apprehended shortly after when an Ace employee tackled the man a few blocks from the store and held him until police could arrive.
Maricopa City Councilmember Henry Wade combined his Councilmember on the Corner session with Maricopa Police Chief Steve Stahl's monthly Coffee with the Chief on Feb. 11 to have an expanded talk about sex trafficking in Arizona. Maricopa teacher Linette Caroselli shared her experience when her 19-year-old daughter went missing and wound up being trafficked in the Phoenix area before finally escaping. Area anti-trafficking advocates also addressed the crowd at The Green Zone.
