Drivers on the east side, be warned, the photo enforcement cameras at Speedway Boulevard and Kolb Road go live at noon Thursday.

After two weeks of testing and inspections, speeders and red light runners now will receive a ticket. The system was delayed because signage needed to be added on the street.


A case of wedding crasher theft in Pima County.

On October 1 at about 5 pm, a woman drove into the parking lot at Wild Horse Ranch.

She took two purses belonging to wedding guests. Then drove to an ATM at Cortaro and Thornydale where she tried to withdraw money.  Later, she bought gas with a bank card at a convenience store in Catalina.

The suspect is a 40-year-old white woman, about 5'6" and heavy set.

If you recognize her or know anything, call 911 or 88-CRIME.


More than $2 million in cash seized since Saturday by border agents at the port of Nogales.  The first bust came when a Mexican woman tried to enter Mexico.
