My Local News Arizona - Advertisement


Surprise Police detained a man for trespassing at the Ottawa University campus on Tuesday morning.

Two guns were discovered inside the man’s car after officers responded to the school near Greenway Road and Civic Center Drive following reports of a trespasser who was “behaving suspiciously.”

Police detained the man in his 30s without incident. Their investigation found that the man had at least two handguns inside his car. Students and staff at Ottawa University were evacuated out of an abundance of caution while officers performed a security sweep of the campus, which found nothing suspicious.

Police are continuing their investigation into the man’s reason for being on campus and misdemeanor trespassing charges are pending.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
