Westlake Police logo

An intoxicated 28-year-old Avon Lake man became obstreperous at a Detroit Rd. bar on Feb. 10 at 2:08AM, pushing another patron and challenging him to a fight. He refused to leave when asked; he was arrested for DCI.

An intoxicated 35-year-old North Olmsted man at the same bar at the same time (but not involved in the previous incident) slurred a question at one of the officers, and then tried to get into his minivan. He was told to stop, but stated that he had a few beers and was fine to drive. He was also arrested for DCI.

A $450 IPhone was taken from an unlocked locker at the Recreation Center on Feb. 10 between 1:30PM-3:30PM. It belonged to a 14-year-old Westlake boy. No suspects.

A Lakewood man reported receiving harassing phone calls on his cell phone and on the business phone at his Center Ridge Rd. job on Feb. 11. The calls come from overseas and demand a $300 payment in lieu of him being arrested, losing his job, and having his credit ruined. The caller has a heavy South Asian Indian accent and knows the victim’s social security number and former address. The victim was also referred to the FTC and the three major credit bureaus for ID theft assistance.

A 2008 Land Rover was stolen from a Balmoral Dr. driveway sometime during the night of Feb. 11. No suspects.

A 16-year-old Westlake boy and 15-year-old Avon Lake girl both cut school on Feb. 13 and ran away together. They took a 2000 Hyundai Tiburon belonging to the boy’s father. GPS showed them in central Ohio on I71; the Mt. Gilead State Highway Patrol post was alerted and stopped them. Both were turned over to their parents for further disposition not inconsistent with their behavior.

A Stonegate Cr. woman received a call from a Bolingbrook, IL PD detective on Feb. 13 concerning the misuse of her social security number. BPD had arrested a male suspect who had been using her SSN (and others) for employment purposes for several years. He faces charges there and also is in the USA illegally. The Westlake woman made a report with WPD at the request of BPD. She has also checked with the 3 major credit bureaus and found no illicit activity.

Two intoxicated Bay Village men (39 and 47-years-old) were arrested for DCI after knocking over a sign and making vulgar remarks near a Vine St. parking garage on Feb. 13 at 11:32PM. The younger suspect signed his citation and was released at the scene to the older man’s sober wife. The older suspect would not sign his and was taken to the City Jail. Odd, just odd.

Two Springfield OH men (21 and 32 years old) were arrested at 2:01AM on Feb. 14 at a Sperry Dr. motel. They were intoxicated and had beaten up a 19-year-old Springfield man with whom they were traveling/working. The younger suspect also found it prudent to try to kick out the cruiser window. The 21-year-old was charged with DCI, Agg. Menacing (threatened to kill the victim), Assault, and Attempted Vandalism.  The 32-year-old was charged with Assault and DCI.

A $50 gift card was taken from a Westford Cr. woman’s unlocked 2000 Honda Accord while it was parked in her parking lot on the night of Feb. 13. No suspects.

Unknown suspects went on a Feb. 3 $7000 spending spree with a Berringer Run man’s Mastercard account. It was used at Lowes and Home Depot stores in Elyria, Avon, Sandusky, and Fairlawn. He discovered the losses on Feb. 14 and has had the card in his possession the whole time.

A 26-year-old Westown Blvd. man proved that no good deed goes unpunished on Feb. 13. He borrowed a neighbor’s car to move out, and then returned it sans a $139 GPS unit. The owner gave the suspect a chance to return it or pay for it-no soap. The suspect denied that the GPS was in the car when contacted by WPD. Totally coincidentally, the suspect was kicked out of his apartment by a roommate whose Wii and jewelry are also missing.
