Here’s a story about two guys who will probably make Santa’s ‘Bad’ list this holiday season.

This Christmas Carol began when a Stonehedge Drive resident noticed the passenger of a black Cadillac 4-door steal a parcel off of a neighbor’s porch on Dec. 10 at 12:05 p.m. in Westlake.

As Westlake Police responded to the scene, which is near the North Olmsted city line, North Olmsted Police also dispatched an officer.

The North Olmsted patrolman stopped the suspect vehicle on Walter Road. Both occupants were arrested by Westlake Police and several packages recovered from the vehicle. They had been stolen from two homes on Stonehedge Drive, report Police.

The passenger – 22 year old Jamir Johnson of Cleveland – was found to have an active warrant from the Cuyahoga County Sheriff Office (RSP) and faces Westlake charges that include two counts of theft, 3 counts of  Possession of Criminal Tools (knives, gloves, cell phones), Carrying Various Weapons (stun gun), Illegal Conveyance (brought marijuana into jail), and 2 counts of  Criminal Trespass, Illegal Possession/Abuse of Food Stamps (was in possession someone else’s Ohio Direction card), and Possession of Marijuana.
