ORO VALLEY (Tucson News Now) - A police officer has been released from active duty after being cited for misdemeanor theft.

Oro Valley Police says officers were investigating a larceny on Tuesday at the Walmart in the Oro Valley Marketplace.  During the investigation, they say they obtained information which implicated an on-duty Oro Valley police officer who was involved in a separate larceny.  

OVPD contacted the Pima County Sheriff's Department.  Deputies say they met with Officer Mario Molina and recovered the stolen property.

Molina is a seven-year veteran with the Oro Valley Police.  An internal investigation is also underway.
