Fr: Capt. Guy Turner

A 23-year-old Lorain man was arrested on June 11 at 2:50AM for 3 counts of Possessing Criminal
Tools (PCT), 3 counts of Criminal Trespass, and 1 count of Receiving Stolen Property. He and his
cousin (36-year-old Lorain man) had been prowling around businesses and vehicles in the Ranney
Pkwy. and Clemens Rd. area. The younger suspect was arrested while riding an 18spd Murray Eagle
River bike and carrying a backpack; he had neither when officers observed him walking with the other
suspect at Crocker-Clemens Rds. earlier. WPD now has warrants against the older man for Theft, PCT
X 2, Trespass X 3, and Obstructing Official Business (OOB). The PCT charges arise from 2-way radios
the duo possessed as well as a flashlight and hand tools. The OOB stems from the false statements that
the older suspect made to officers concerning his whereabouts and activities on the morning in question.

8 17in. wheels and tires were stolen off two Chevrolet trucks parked at the Pat O’Brien dealership. The
theft occurred between June 9 and the morning of June 11. No suspects.

International man of mystery Austin Powers may be needed to crack the case of the unknown computer
hacker who obtained a $2000 airline ticket from a Detroit Rd. travel agency. Perhaps it was Dr. Evil or

intrusion was discovered on June 11.

farmers market on June 9. No illicit transactions were made by the unknown suspect(s) before the card

Promenade. He threatened to shoot several of the security and WPD officers and kicked a WPDer in
the leg. Another WPDer received scrapes to his hand in the fracas. The suspect faces Assault, Resisting
Arrest, Assault on Police Ofcr (x2), and Agg. Menacing (x4) charges.

5 area men were arrested on June 15 after a 1:30AM fracas on Canterbury Rd. near Westwood Rd.
One group of males confronted another and punched-kicked-head butted the first group’s car (white

were conducting investigations at this and two other locations (Chaucer Dr. and Bassett Rd.)

during the brawl. The Disorderly Conduct charges relate to fighting in the street and the Obscene
