Bay Police report that alert residents can contribute to keeping the community safe by reporting suspicious activities.
On Sept. 24 at 10:44 a.m., a male resident on Salem Drive reported two white males walking around the neighborhood. They appeared to be looking at houses in an unusual way. The resident gave a very good description of the two and said he last saw them walking on Tanglewood Lane.
Officers were dispatched to the area and found the males on Breezewood Drive. Both were identified and found to have extensive criminal records for burglary.
One of the males had gloves on his person and when asked what the gloves were for, stated, “My hands get cold”. It was a warm, sunny day.
Their vehicle was found parked on Salem Drive, near Saddler Road. Officers determined no crime had been committed. The two Clevelanders left east-bound on Lake Road, under police escort, until they were into Rocky River.
A Rocky River patrol car just happened to be in the area to escort them through their city. A call was placed to the Salem Drive resident who originally called the police and he was thanked for preventing what most likely would have been one or more burglaries in his neighborhood.
“We know it sounds trite, but “SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.” report Bay Police. The Bay Village Police Department is always happy to respond to calls received about persons, or any observation, of a suspicious nature.
