Jesus Greer, was arrested by Oro Valley police on March 24, and is being investigated for repeatedly offering a teen-ager a ride while walking home from school.
Greer, 66, was booked into the Pima County jail on an unrelated charge — misdemeanor alcohol charges — as the investigation continues, said an Oro Valley Police Department spokeswoman.
On March 4, police responded to a report from a Canyon del Oro High School student, who told police he was walking home from school about 2 p.m. when a man in an older model minivan approached him and offered him a ride.
The suspect asked the student about five times to enter his vehicle, and the student said no, said Riley.
On March 24, officers made contact with Greer, who fit the suspect's description. Greer admitted to police that he spoke to a young man walking home from school and asked him if he needed a ride.
