Carjacking Suspect Crashed and Fled the Scene in Oro Valley

May 29, 2019

On May 29, 2019 at approximately 9:26 a.m., Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) responded to several reports of a reckless driver in the area of Oracle Road and Hardy Road. One officer enroute to the call observed a crash at Oracle Road and El Conquistador Way, which had just occurred, involving the suspected reckless driver. The suspect, later determined to be Timothy Charles Hart, age 31, fled the scene on foot. OVPD set up quads and deployed a drone. Hart was eventually located and taken into custody in a nearby apartment complex.

A subsequent investigation revealed Hart was a suspect in a carjacking and armed robbery in Tucson. Tucson Police Department and OVPD are working together in this investigation. Hart will be charged with multiple felonies stemming from the carjacking and armed robbery. He will also be charged with criminal damage, hit and run with serious physical injury and endangerment stemming from the crash in Oro Valley. One victim was transported to a local trauma center in stable condition.
