Westlake Police blotter Dec. 21, 2012
As of this writing, the so-called Mayan Apocalypse has not occurred. Any status changes to this world’s existence will be reported at once.
Front door glass was broken with a rock at a Westchester Pkwy. home on Dec. 12 at 6:18PM by two males, who also yelled threats through the door. One was wearing a green/white hooded sweatshirt.
2 vehicles were broken into at Dave and Busters on Dec. 16 between 5PM-7:40PM. A 2012 VW Jetta belonging to a Garfield Hts. man had the passenger rear window broken; a hat and bag with misc. papers were taken. A Westlake woman’s 2003 Saturn Vue had the front passenger window broken; a purse and Kindle Fire were taken; no suspects.
$20 cash was stolen from a cash register at a Detroit Rd. store on Nov. 30. Loss prevention staff located a video recording of the theft and reported it on Dec. 17. A customer (21-year-old Bay Village man) was identified as the culprit and a warrant for Petty Theft was obtained.
A Detroit Rd. woman’s apartment was forcibly entered on Dec. 17 between noon and 6PM by breaking a window. Nothing seems to be missing; no suspects.
A 19-year-old Westlake man missed a 10:30AM appointment with his probation officer on Dec. 18 after he went on a pre-end of the world rampage at his grandmother’s Salem Pkwy. home. When awakened at 9:49AM, he began hitting his girlfriend and biting others, punching holes in walls, and damaging kitchen furnishings. He was locked outside, where officers arrested him. The assault victims gave him a Christmas pass on any charges; grandmama did sign a Criminal Damaging complaint. RRMC records show him on probation for 2011 Theft and Disorderly Conduct Persisting convictions.
Fiendish Francophile filchers of foreign funds resurfaced again on Dec. 18. A Detroit Rd. man’s bank notified him of 3 suspicious transactions from French firms on his debit card that date. Two went through for a total of $438 US (2179 francs) at what appear to be a shoe store and tobacconist; a third transaction was refused. The bank in this instance is not the bank involved in last week’s French episode. The investigative aid of Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau of the Surete would be greatly appreciated.
A Lakewood woman’s purse was taken from her 2008 Honda Pilot between 5:10PM-6:15PM on Dec. 18 while it was parked at a Clemens Rd. business. The front passenger window was broken. A 6Ft tall white female with blond hair entered the firm at 5:20PM and conversed very loudly with the staff; it is suspected that she was distracting the employees during the theft.
A Hilliard Oak Ln. homeowner discovered a burglary on Dec. 19 at 7PM. Entry had been forced through the kitchen door sometime since 5AM. An heirloom rifle and shotgun were taken; no suspects.
